You are Awesome: Floral Card

Hiya Crafty peeps,

Happy Tuesday!

Am here today with a last moment entry to the current Altenew challenge.

Over to the project!

  • Onto Canson Watercolor card, stamped roses and leaves from Altenew's Bold Blossoms stamp set in Antique linen distress ink.
  • Tried no line coloring using Zig clean color brush pens.
  • The florals and leaves are fussy cut once done.
  • Onto the watercolor cs, misted the bg heavily with water and dropped the colors of blue followed by yellow from Gansai Tambi watercolors to create a hazy bg.
  • I went for a hint of colors in the bg.
  • Once dried, splattered fine black paint over the panel.
  • Added a chipboard and onto which the fussy cut florals and leaves are added with adhesive tapes.
  • Then generously spattered white paint onto the panel to make the whole card come together.
  • Sentiment from Altenew's You are stamp set is white heat embossed onto a black cs and added to the panel.
  • Few clear dew droplets for added interest.
Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!

Stencil Stamping & Coloring : Mudra DT post

Hi Friends,

Am on Mudra's blog for today's monthly post. I have made 3 cards focusing Stencil Sponging. Sponging over Stencils is a pretty basic way to use. Stencils can also be used for mists/sprays or to apply the texture pastes to get the desired patterns. For which, whole stencil or a portion can be used to create the focal image or even a background.

Always start loading the sponge with the ink and lightly sponge over the stencil in one direction only. Once a layer of ink on your cardstock is dried, you can sponge over top with more inks and more pressure to intensity to get a layered look.

Went ahead and colored the sponged areas of the stenciled portion to make my focal images for first 2 cards and in the last card, used stencil for background on yupo paper using alcohol inks .

Check the  Mudra blog for the complete procedure and pictures.

Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!

Bowl of Beauty : PowerPoppy

Hi All,

My dear Mom's birthday today and made a floral card for my Plant Nerd Mumma :)

She absolutely love plants and religiously maintains a huge garden at my hometown. This blog is the sample of her creative streaks which she transferred. Such a fabulous oil painting artist she is and all my childhood days were spent watching her create layers and layers of those artistic paintings.

Way back in 2011, this day, I made a handmade Quilled birthday card to Mom and from that there wasn't no looking back...The moments were in search of "Me time" when little one was 2 yrs old and I ended up to this wonderland of Art and Handmade rightly!! Kind of soul-seeking!

Over to the card for today!

  • Printed Bowl of Beauty, a digital stamp from Powerpoppy.
  • Colored using Faber Castell polychromes colored pencils.
  • After finishing coloring, the bg around the flowers were made by Zig clean color brush pens.
  • I did a very light hazy bg with a baby blue brush pen.
  • Few enamel dots to finish off the card.
  • The focal panel matted to the black cs.
  • Then it's mounted onto the 5x6.5" white card base.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!

There's Always Sunshine : Graciellie Designs

Hello All,

Am here today with yet another Sunflower series card. Yay! Love this Summer Sunflowers Digital set from Graciellie Designs. This time, I have used one of the lovely paper from the co-ordinating digital paper pack called Summer Sunflowers . I absolutely love this duo release!!

  • I took print out of one of the digital paper which has collaged with the Trio Sunflowers and the sentiment.
  • Colored the florals using Cretacolor FineArt Graphite pencils - 4B,8B.
  • Then the colors are slightly smudged using Mont Morte paper stumps.
  • Floral centres are lightly colored using Prisma colored pencil: Cream.
  • Matted this panel to black cs.
  • And then to the cream top fold 5.5" square card base.
  • To go with the sentiment, kept the florals simple with bright bg paper.
  • Just few grey enamel dots are added as accents.
Hope the sentiment, bg and the florals go together to convey the meaning :) 

Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!
