Graciellie Design Birthday Blog hop

Hi Crafty Friends!

"Happiest Birthday, Gracie Chavez"

Am so delighted to join Graciellie Design Birthday Blog hop for today. We have several new releases and I have used this Uber Gorgeous Tulips from Tulips & Daisies Digital stamp set.

Made a bunch of Tulips and these pretty ones demanded watercoloring and so I colored to my heart's content using Zig clean color brush pens.

Over to the project,

  • Printed the tulip digis making a floral spray on a watercolor card.
  • Colored using Zig clean color brush pens. Geranium red for petals and for leaves used Green and Dark green brush pens.
  • For the bg, used Gansai Tambi watercolors (Green and Yellow)
  • Finally sprayed generous amount of watered down white acrylic paint.
  • Trimmed and matted this panel over a 4x6" side fold Black card base. (*sentiment is hand stamped)
  • As a final touch, added clear dew droplets as accents.
Supplies used :  Tulips & Daisies

Stampendous Bouquet for you : Happy Birthday card

Hiya Friends!

Am still in Spring mood! Yet another floral birthday card here for you all.

This lovely bunch of florals is made using a gift from a dear Crafty friend, Kanan Pandya, whose watercolored cards are my ever favorite!  She has sent me this Stampendous: Bouquet for you Stampset few years ago and I love using it often!

You can check my earlier creations using this stampset here and here

Masked and made into cute floral spray using No line coloring with Fabercastell polychromos pencils. These were colored during Kathyrac's dailymarker coloring contest. Now made it into a card. I colored the fussy cut ends with black marker to give a neat look.

  • Took a watercolored cardstock.
  • Splashed with water centrally and added Limegreen Brusho crystals over it and heat set it.
  • Went over with Prima Marketing- Finnabair Lightpaste with TCW 'Art is' stencil diagonally over the colored portion of the card.
  • Stamped the sentiment from Inspired by Stamping using Memento Black.
  • Matted the panel over A2 sized Black card base by trimming it a bit.
  • The added the fussy cut florals with foam adhesives.
  • Couple of purple fussy cut butterflies with few clear dew droplets to finish off the card.
Hope you like it!

Happy Birthday: Floral card

Hi Friends,

Made a quick floral card. Pencil colored these peonies from Power poppy: Dynamic duos clear stamp set several months ago, during Kathyrac's dailymarker coloring contest. Recolored a bit now to give a fresh look to the peonies.

  • Stamped the peonies onto white cardstock.
  • Colored using Prisma colored pencils.
  • Trimmed and Die-cut using MFT Bracket die.
  • Stamped the sentiment using Memento Black ink on to the kraft colored Top fold A2 sized card base.
  • Mounted the panels on to the kraft to reveal the base sentiment part using Foam adhesives, to raise the panels above the card base.
  • A mini butterfly Mudra Chipzeb is added to the die cut part of panel.
  • Few enamel dots to finish off the card.
Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!!

Butterflies' Birthday Wish

Hi Friends!

Am here today with a simple birthday card with a bit of Watercolor play with Brusho.

It's been a long time since I played with it!

  • Took watercolor cardstock and sprayed water with a mister.
  • Added the Lime green Brusho pigment. One of my favorite of all for the pigments it holds : Green, Yellow and a dash of blue.
  • Heat set when the pigments moved and formed a desired look,
  • Using TCW 'Art is' stencil, stenciled over the colored area with Prima's Platinum crackle paste.
  • Being a thin font style, the crackles aren't that prominent. Nevertheless I love the metallic sheen of the platinum paste.
  • Stamped the sentiment from Inspired By Stamping 'Wishing you' using memento black ink onto the focal panel.
  • Using Ranger White EP , heat embossed the butterflies from Stamplorations Trendy Butterflies2  onto Vellum.
  • Fussy cut those butterflies and added to the focal panel.
  • This panel is trimmed and mounted onto a baby blue top fold 4x6" card base.
  • Few clear dew droplets added as final touch.
Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!
