Guest Designer @ PCM

Hi Friends!

Am delighted to guest design today at ParuCardmaking Challenges. Its such an honor to be invited and Thanks much for the lovely opportunity, Paru.

This month’s theme is  "Anything Goes" at PCM and i have come up with a Mixed media card and a Tag.

 First up is Mixed media Card.

Made a mixed media square card. Lot of stamping , stenciling and texture pastes on the background.
Floral cluster along with tinted cheesecloth, twine bow are made on a doily.
Few vellum butterflies, generous splashes of white gesso and few clear droplets are added as finishing touches.

Next up is a Simple Tag.


Made a simple Tag, with watercolor bg using Brusho crystals.
Stamped leaves stamp using Green archival ink followed by Watereffects Stamp using black archival ink.
Sentiment is stamped over Vellum and added with few vellum butterflies.
As a final touch, added glossy accents to few raindrops.

I hope you feel inspired to play along this month’s Challenge - "Anything goes”

  1. both are awesome sathya and congratulations on your GDT

  2. Congrats Sathya on your GDT post..Love the mixed media card and the vellum butterflies..And the shining dropa are looking amazing..

  3. What a treat to see two creations that are so different, yet so lovely! I adore all the layering and texture that you built up with your mixed media piece. It is absolutely elegant and refined in every way. It's stunning! And then your "simple" tag! I don't think it's simple at all, but it is another stand-out piece! I like how you incorporated the vellum so skillfully and how it comes to life through all those different shades of green. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  4. Hello Sathya and welcome yo my butterfly challenge. I don't believe you have played before. I love your card with the butterflies so delicate looking and the tag is a great idea with the repeating raindrops. I love them both. Thank you for fluttering into the butterfly garden. Hugs Mrs A.

  5. Hey Sathya, many thanks for sharing your tag with me over at the Designs by Ryn challenge. Love the green that you used in the tag and all of the images that you combined to illustrate the sentiment. Reminds me of some "little things" that I enjoy such as listening to the rain :) The other piece has lovely dimension to it! Wishing you lots more inspiration! ~ Ryn
