Watercolor magic with gold!

Hello, friends!
Happy Tuesday!

To make this card, I started up with the beautiful Australian orchid usingVersamark ink on a watercolored paper, heat embossed it and watercolored it with my Zig real brushes.

I went around the whole outer edges of the image with a very light blue and pink colour with faded look to pop up the whole image with more depth and fussy cut it.

The background strip is a watercolored piece to create more interest and before drying it I applied bronze Perfect pearls on it with my water brush. Then I ripped the top edge for a little bit more pizazz. And heat embossed the sentiment! I die cut a doily and adhered it to my main panel. Embellished it with some gold & copper colour sequins and a musical washi note!

It just a fun to create a CAS card with the cool gold effect! Hope you guys like it!

Supplies used:
White coloured CS
Stamps: Australian Nature I and Big Wishes II from Inspired By Stamping stamps
Die: Crochet Doily from Prima Dies
Embossing Powder: Wow Metallic Gold Rich Pale from Itsy Bitsy
Zig Clean Color Real Brush- set of 12
Some sequins from my stash
Musical washi tape

Mixed Media in Ombre Dreams!

Hello, everyone!
Good Afternoon!

This time I am sharing a Mixed Media Canvas Layout.
I am so impressed and excited to participate in More Than World Challenge where the
 Word Inspiration - CHANGE
Creative Challenge - OMBRE and also joining in The Hop to Stop, raising awareness for victims of domestic violence hosted by Becca Cruger

"Colours are the greatest medium for the expression of feelings. The Purple and Pink Ombre hue are to signify the positive vibes, the dreams and life itself. My motto is to live life simply with happiness and positive energy.
Change is a vital part of life but family is one thing constant in life. The Mumma bird and her kids depict the joy of living together! A love that never changed! Happy Happy!!!"

Of course, it needed to colours come alive and Color Bursts were just the things! Love the flow of colours on this LO!

         Firstly, I gave my canvas a coat of thick gesso and from all sides too. Now mist the canvas with water and sprinkle a few colour bursts powder to create my background and used a baby wipe to create a pattern at the bottom. Some stamping to create  floral BG and created some stems using Gelatos. I have chosen a gorgeous purple watercolour PP which perfectly match for the LO, you can clearly see in the pic!
Now roughly created the pattern on my canvas.

This cute Bird Family chippie is heavy gesso first , coloured them with gelatos and applied sparkle dots on the branch.

The purple flowers are handmade using Heartfelt creations die with foam and papers, Aren't they gorgeous! And combined with some Prima flowers too.

See the gloss on the Life quote using clear embossing powder and Love the opal Magic acrylic paint for this gorgeous metal butterfly!

I rub some old gold and opal magic acrylic paint on this cute birdcage for more shine.

Two Little Sparrow cards and excited news!!!

Hello friends!
Good Morning!

I am back again after a break!
Today, I have created two cards as a Guest Designer with my first ever own designed stamp set and stencil, Happy me!!!!
I am a stamp designer artist for Peek-a-boo Designs, so excited:))))))
It is an Indian Co. and an awesome owner Vidushi, gave me this great opportunity to design stamps and stencils, feeling so much honored and she helped me to make my dream become a reality........!

My own designed stamp and stencil:
  The Little sparrow and Beaded stencil

For the first card......... Here is my take on the sketch

I stamped the Little sparrow image on Bielo white CS in Pumice stone and little birdie too. I watercolored the whole image with my Zig clean color real brushes first and for more dimension, I added pencil shading on it with some Staedtler Watercolored pencils, fussy cut out the image.
 By masking technique, I again stamped the flower part only and colored them. Fussy cut it and don't forget to color the edges too. I embossed my flowers with the embossing tool and pad, added few pollens inside and adhered them on the main flower image, Look at the depth and dimension on 3 D flowers, I totally love the amazing results!
I die cut a dual stitched rounded rectangle and created a ground scene by adding some grass using zig brush markers and added fussy cut bush too. Now adhered my whole image on it.

I die cut the stitched scalloped border out of the blue glittered sheet and die few holes for more dimension.
Die cut a Fishtail banners out of vellum sheet using the same dual stitched rectangle die by using one of a corner, how easy-peasy:)))) and added some hole using  the stitch hole die. Stamped the sentiment from the same set using Versamark embossing ink , heat embossed it with Primary ebony Wow embossing powder.
For my card base, I die cut a black colored CS by extended the dual stitched die cut from the same set( the biggest one). Now adhered a blue CS sheet and now adhered my main panel with that scalloped border.
And finished off the card by adding some glossy accents and sequins too.
Here is the inside view:

Now for the second card........
                       I started with my dual stitched rounded rectangle die out of a watercolor CS and die cut a window from the same die set. Now masked all 4 sides and applied embossing paste using beaded stencil.I sprayed the panel with water spray bottle and applied Dylusions acrylic paint and misted it water again according to my need, added some splatters too.
       Next, I stamped the little sparrow image on Bielo CS using distress inks. Firstly, I filled the whole image with my white gel pen for texture and then watercolored it with distress inks and left the sparrow image as it is, fussy cut it. You can see the white textures on the leaf:). Now I die cut one more panel for inside with window and adhered the fancy lattice die in between the both panels. Adhered my image with pop dots.
           Die cut the inspire word 4 times and heat embossed it with embossing powder. Added glossy accent on it for more depth and dimension.

Next, I die cut a fancy lattice for my window out of an adhesive white felt sheet and sprinkled fine glitter dust on it and burnished properly it with my finger.

For the inside: I applied distress inks on the panel and misted it with water. Then stamped a little birdie using mermaid lagoon ink on a white sheet and watercolored it with distress colors, added some detailings using the white gel pen and fussy cut it. Partially stamped the bluebell flower branch and watercolored it too and now fussy cut them.  Adhered the flower branch with dimensions and my birdie using pop dots. Stamped the sentiment in dual colors.

Hope you enjoyed my both creations with my own designed stamps! 
Happy crafting!

Happy girl!

Hello friends!

         This is my first attempt at making a background with Alcohol inks, I planned to play with them from a long time and today I got the chance.

          I played on a Neenah solar white glossy CS.  Firstly I applied sunshine yellow ink on my card base and blended it properly using my sponge blender. Then I played with various shades of alcohol inks to create the textures at all over the edges. I dabbed some blending solution on my sponge and applied it. Applied this method 3-4 times, till then I was satisfied with the result. I made my own circle stencil. Using  masking technique, created the setting sun in the centre.

I sponged a little line to create the ground. Then sprayed some Picket fence splatters. Then I die cut it using my Rectangles die.
I am so pleased with the effect!

For creating the whole scene I used so many different stamps. At the top and both of the sides, I stamped some leaf branches in Cornflower blue ink.

At the bottom, I stamped some Hollyhock flower branches using my distress markers and stamped with my Misti, Then I stamped some mushrooms and wild leaves too.

I used one of Mudra's beautiful silhouette stamp Happy girl in the centre using my Misti in black pigment ink. Misti made my work so easy peasy for the perfect stamping. Then I heat embossed my image with clear embossing powder to really stand her out.

I stamped my sentiment using embossing pad and heat embossed it in bright opaque white. By happy mistake, a drop of sunshine alcohol ink was spread on my sentiment, so I applied it all over the sentiment! And it is looking more perfect to match with my scene!
Then I added some white dots using my white gel pen.

I really like this creation, so different for my all other creations, pleased with the outcome without using any embellishment!

Supplies used:
Neenah Classic solar white glossy CS, Sunshine yellow, green and orange colored  CS
Stamps: Happy girl from Mudra with sentiment; Leaf branches from Magnolia Grove- Kaisercraft; Hollyhock and wild leaves from Itsy Bitsy- CB4001; Mushrooms from Fairy friends- Lawn Fawn stamp set

Celebrate with friends

Hello, friends!
Happy Friendship Day!

Every single friendship is dear to me and special in their own way!
Thank you so much, my dear bloggy friends, for visiting often and sharing your sweet comments and emails! Your upliftings and sweet notes always brighten my day and mean so much to me!
So celebrate this moment I tried a Tri-fold card first time which can be decorated as a wall hanging too!

  First of all, I cut a white CS in three panels using Martha Stewart Board. I used beautiful polka dotted PP. For the shaker part, I used a circle flower die out of the colourful polka dot pp. Then created my focal panel. I used a woodgrain card panel die for embossing. You can see in the picture clearly. And adhered it on my polka dotted panel. Tore a vellum sheet randomly to create more dimension and interest and adhered it on the panel. Then I stamped some flowers in different colours and die cut them.  And decorated the panel with flourishes and leaves.
Now die cut the celebrate sentiment and embossed it with black twinkle embossing powder and adhered it on my vellum strip with glossy accents.

 On the 2nd panel, Using ink smooshing technique, I played with my Zig brush pens. applied few colours on my craft mat randomly and misted it with water. Keep my white CS on that place, rubbed it gently and finally achieve the results. Then using my Misti I stamped the sentiment 3 times for perfect result and embossed it with clear powder.

 On the 3rd panel, I decorated my polka dotted circle with floral embellishments, flourishes and we can add a cute pic of our friend here with some personal message!

 Here is the full view of a myTri-fold card!
