Thanks with Altenew


Hello Friends !How are you all doing ? I am posting after long ,not crafting much these days :) Then what made me come out of my hibernation ? The Beautiful gift from my dear friend Jasleen ,She gifted me this wonderful layered Lilly stamp set,my first Altenew stamp :) I am blessed to have friends who choose perfect gift for me !! Today's card is for you Jasleen !


As is evident from the look of the card I struggled a lot while creating it ! Switched many ideas.Started with a white base and ended with a black one ! The background has some text and white paint splatters.Stamped the lilies with mix of distress ink and markers.The sentiment is from same set and enamel dots from PABD.


 I realized after using this stamp why stampers are so in love with layered stamps.Its fascinating to see the image build layer by layer and you can try numerous color combo and get fab artistic looking results.

Graphic Thanks



This is card is specially  for you all ,my blogger friends ! Cannot thank enough for the appreciation and encouragement you all have given me.Its my tonic for blogging and crafting !
Coming to the card ,created the background by smooshing inks on the card base.
Ink smooshing with three colors

While it was drying,  stamped the triangles (Still hooked with them) with grey ink on watercolor paper,traced the outline of "thanks" using a mask(W & W)

giving polygonal/faceted effect
 And then came the time consuming part,broke the pattern inside the word into small triangles and colored them patiently in various shades of green using water color pencils,brush pens and connector pens



embellished with few Enamel dots ,glitter strips to finish off the card.

Card with mask

Thanks for dropping by,Have a great day ahead.

Happy Hello !



A very Happy hello to my creative friends ! Back with cool colors again ! I was inspired by the patterned strips and flowers from this fresh spring mood board.
Started by blending salty oceans ,peacock feathers and cracked pistachio distress inks on a card stock panel.Then flicker water over it for some interest.After it was completely dry,stamped only  part of  the Bold blooms Stamp (PABD) with archival ink.


 On another panel clear Heat embossed a beaded pattern using Strips Stamp set(Winnie & Walter)and watercolored loosely with lime green color.Used another stamp from the same set to create the black & white strips.Arranged them on the card base.used Rectangled and Triangled set(Winnie & Walter) to mimic washi tape.
The sentiment is from The Big the Bold and the Happy (Winnie & Walter). Finished off with few sequins.

Matching envelope for the card
