MHK DT Intro :)

Though i have shared Inspiration pic for challenge a week back, Today is my official intro post MHK Designs and am so very excited to be part of this lovely team.

Thank u so much Mynn for the wonderful opportunity.

This lovely digi image and sentiment as well from Blossoming set of MHK designs.

MHK designs Etsy shop has such lovely vintage images with retro sentiments and Gorgeous patterned papers. I would be much more happier, if Mynn makes this as Physical stamps and pps. Mynn ...Try working on it!!! I love to purchase! Am waiting for the day!

Sentiment is diecut using labels frame. Flowers are framed around the sentiment. Those are colored using my new Zig color brush pens, fussy cut and layered on a embossed (Florish embossing folder), sponged (mustard sees DI) at edges. This matted on a deckled A2 cream card base.

Hope you like the designs as much as i do. Join us for this month challenge at MHK and win yourself beautiful digis and pps :)

Be Mine!

Another card for today!

Straight away to pic :)

This is such special stamp set to me, as this is designed by a sweet crafty soul, Rhizwana Fathima, of creativ cauldron, who professionally a Physician, passionately an artist :) Am awestruck at every inch of her talent. This is such a dream come true which i witnessed and so this joy!!! This stampset is also from Varna's creation, a proud Indian make.

I love to build background scenes using various DIs. Here i used, Tumbled glass, Salty ocean, Shaded liliac, Iced spruce DI from mid of card and moved up, masking a portion for moon.

For the snow, i smooshed the versamark directly on the down part of the card, and heat embossed with Zing White opaque Ep.

And for the snowy night effect, without using anti static pouch, stamped snow stamps from same stamp set and sprinkled little bit of Zing white opaque and heat embossed.

The cuties - boy and girl were stamped using Archival black and colored using my Zig brush pens and fussy cut.

For the heart, a Freckledfawn wood veneer is smooshed on Colorbox red pigment and heat embossed with UTEE clear Ep twice. This added on the top of the heart image.

Sentiment is stamped on black Cs  using versamark, heat embossed using Zing white opaque Ep and  notched at ends.

Hope you like it!

Be my Valentine :)

Hi Friends!

Weekend here but my biological clock woke me up so early!

Oh yeah...made some early Valentine cards :)

Watercolors and mixed media are my recent crush, if you follow my blog, you won't be surprised about it!!

Two watercolor cards i made today with "Be my Valentine" sentiment stamp set from Varna's creations, an Indian make, high quality photo polymer stamps, crisp and clear images and more so...very pocket friendly :)

For this card, took a wc card, with a wet brush randomly brushed at the centre.
Then took LSG -cocklebells coral and misted on a acrylic block, and with brush dropped in the wet area of the card.
Mist beautifully spread around where water moved on and job done :)
Hit with the heat gun and the sentiment is stamped with versamark and heat embossed with Ranger's super fine Gold Ep.
Matted with A2 sized baby pink cs and added few pink sequins to finish off the card.

Second card :)

This sentiment stamp is also from same stamp set.
On a Wc card, with wet brush drew a heart.
Then on acrylic block, smooshed the Worn lipstick DI and took the color on brush and dropped on the wet area.
Beautifully the spread happens.
Hit the heat gun when am satisfied and added Spellbinders Vines of passion Heart Diecut (new in my stash).
Few peach pearls on the hearts and generously topped the diecut area with Wink of stella clear glitter for that subtle shimmer.
Stamped the sentiment using Ranger's black archival ink and as final touched added Rose gold heart rhinestones.
Matted this with A2 sized pink cs and finished the card.

Hope you like it!!
