Spotlight Technique with Geometric Butterfly!

Hi to all!

Today, I would like to show how I create this card with the full procedure of Spotlight technique with an embossing twist! I love experiments! 😊

                        I started with one of the double running stitches dies to cut my focal panel from a watercolor sheet. Stamped the butterfly in Versamark embossing ink and sprinkled embossing glitter powder, heat embossed it, look at the shine, Wow, amazing!

          The Spotlight Technique is very interesting to highlight any part of the image in Black & white and then color it. But my twist is instead of Black &white I highlighted it with silver embossing touch!

I decided to highlight my butterfly image using star die with a trail!

I used glass watercoloring technique to color my spotlight area. I wet the area with loose water and leave a very thin dot to spread the color with water. I am very happy with the result! And matted it. Now line up the colored image with the silver color stamped image.

                        Stamped my greeting and I masked the sentiment to highlight the word Sparkle. Love the shine!Matted my focal panel too. Wrapped my label with a satin ribbon and adhered my focal panel to my card base.
My card base is white and adhered a piece of matching blue PP  to the left side of the card. Now I finished it off making a trail with my own loads of bling.

The final view once again:

A Friendly Hello!

 Hello, crafty peeps!

Good Morning to all!
Happy Independence Day to all my Indian Crafty Friends!

So excited to share my creation in Rainbow colors on this important and happy day!

                           This adorable scene is created with Phoebe with her wagon stamp set. This set is so versatile with cute images and sentiments. I colored the images using distress inks and cut them with coordinating dies. I trimmed some parts of the cute image of doggy because I wanted to show him hang on those fences.

      I used the ice-cream spoons to create my fence and cut them accordingly my need. And choose to go with the rainbow colored theme using distress inks.

        I created a hill slope using a die and dotted papers. Cut the grass from a designer paper too and adhered at the back of the hill slope as shown in the pic.

 Using my puffy clouds die I created my own stencil and applied on my white textured card base.

   The sentiment is also from the same set. And I did foil experiment the very first time using bonding powder. After two trials, little happy with the results will experiment again for the best result 😊

    For more interest and textures used stitching holes die at the bottom.

Embellished it with some flower sequins!
One more pic from another angle!

I fussy cut the colored bloom out of it for my spotlight panel. Fussy cut brown colored foam sheet too and adhered both the layers on my metallic CS.

A close-up look:

Scatter Kindness!

Hello, friends!
I am back on the last day of this month with a fun creation! And I am happy that able to participate some more challenges :)D

             Today I am representing a card using Winnie & Walter - Kindness with Evelin T Designs stamp set in summery and cool colors. I opted the color combo from Winnie & Walter Color Combo Challenge for July month Return challenge. I love this set with so many beautiful shaped trees, a lot of space to color. And love such bold sentiment to match and made own sentiments too. How versatile!!!!

And this is my take on the fun sketch from July at Stamploration!

                                 First of all, I die cut a watercolor CS with double running stitching texture die. Then I started by stamping the trees with a lot of masking and created a beautiful forest scene with scattered leaves and some hand-colored grasses! And my Misti help me a lot!
I love watercoloring, so used my distress inks and water brushes.

 I am inspired by gold glittery touch on Shay's gorgeous creation with such beautiful array of trees! You can just click on her name and see her gorgeous card. I stamped the bold sentiment on a vellum and heat embossed it with gold glitter and fussy cut it! Adhered it using clear gel tacky glue Then stamped the matching sentiment in Black Archival ink!

                          For my card base, I choose a little textured white CS and at the bottom, I created a cross stitch border textures and slightly cut it to create more dimension and interest! Then Blended my distress ink on all the edges!
Some golden thread and sequins finished the card!

Hope you enjoyed my creation!
Happy ending July!

Birthday Balloon girl

Hello, crafty people!

                            Casology is celebrating its 5th Birthday Party and I love the opportunity to participate in this fun Birthday hop with a beautiful theme "Balloons". I am so much inspired with various creations by all talented Designers!!!

So here is my card!

              I decided to paint this sweet balloon girl from Unity having a lot of water colouring space!
I stamped the image in soft pink shadow ink from Hero arts. Because I want the whole image in ombre look effect.

         I have used my Zig Brush markers. Mix the little bit of pearl shimmer in the water to colour her skirt. And created a light pink shadow underneath the image. For ombre look, I used 3 different shades. The transparent watercolours really standing out so well!

While stamping the sentiment, the ink got a little smudge. So I got a cute idea 😊
I heat embossed the sentiment again on a vellum sheet as shown in the picture with two tone ombre effect. 


Look at the ombre embossing effect on the vellum, how pretty it is! After placing the vellum sentiment in the same place, it is impacting the shadow look of underneath sentiment!

At My card base panel, I roughly watercolored some stripes in ombre style along the right side edge of the card! And Adhered my panel using foam dots. And dressed up it with some cute tiny hearts!

A closer look of Pearl shimmer!

Thanks for stopping by and Have a good day! Hope you enjoyed this creation!

Cardstocks: Neenah solar white smooth CS, Heavy white little textured CS; Vellum sheet
Stamps: Sweet 16 from Unity stamp, Circle Birthday sentiments from Reverse Confetti
