Congratulations Card ♥ Tulip fields ♥♥

       Happy day friends.
       Today I'm sharing with you guys a water colored card I created for my friend for her graduation :) :) 
       Oh, I was inspired by the Runway Inspired Challenge & wanted to create one. So I thought, why not now?!

       This is the photo for the current challenge.

       And as soon as I saw the photo I was reminded of the tulip fields with a background of blue skies!!

       So with that as my inspiration, I started painting my card with Distress inks. 
       I painted the sky first & then added strips of colors. Added clouds to the sky & tulips to the colored strips!! And slightly darkened the borders with corresponding colors. 
       Finally used Vintage photo DI to coat the edges of the card stock.
       Here is what happened ~ frozen in time for you guys 

       And then, I stuck the panel to my Iris Sg white card stock using double sided tape. 

       Cut a banner out of Neenah solar white card stock, embossed the sentiment from Bo Bunny stamp set & gave a distressed look using DI ~ Walnut stain & Vintage photo!!

       Drew a few hearts using a red marker & added Glossy accents 

       And, the best part of making this card ~ She loved it

♥ Bundle of Joy ♥

       Good day friends!!
       This is a card I made for my friend's baby shower.
       Since I forgot to take step by step photos, I will give details about its making in words!!

~I cut the Iris SG white card stock in the shape of a onesie.
~Then cut another onesie shaped card from linen white card stock, a bit smaller than the front panel of my card.
~I colored the panel using Distress ink.
~I stamped some stars randomly & embossed it using Wow clear embossing powder.
~Then fussy cut some scalloped edges from pink colored card stock & pasted it on the onesie.
~Stamped a line of stars along the fussy cuts & embossed it with Platinum sparkle embossing powder.

~Used white signo pen to add some lines to the edges!!
~Finally I stamped the sentiment using Tim Holtz worn letters & ItsyBitsy alphabet stamps.

~On the inside, colored & stamped with memento ink & sentiments added from a rub-on!!

       Along with the envelope

A Rainbow of colors!!

       Hi friends, today I'm sharing with you guys a card I made for my friend's birthday. 
       I didn't have much time to create an elaborate card which resulted in it being a CAS card!! But I must say, it turned out pretty with a rainbow of colors.

       First I started with a white card stock & coloured it with Distress inks diluted with water. I used the colors of the rainbow & let the colors blend a bit!! Then I sprinkled some water, let it react with the DI & used a tissue paper to absorb the excess.

       Then I cut a square panel from the same white card stock & applied Distress ink directly to it, again in colors of a rainbow.

       I cut a square piece of vellum a bit smaller than the square panel & embossed the sentiment using Ranger black embossing powder & pasted the vellum on the back of the square panel.
       And finally I stuck that to the front of the card.

       I created a pop-up cake on the inside & pasted some fussy cut candles to it & stamped the sentiment using DI.

       I am definitely using this rainbow design again, I love it

To Travel is to Live ♥♥♥

       This is a card I made for my friend Naveen, whom I met for the first time during my Goa Sailing trip in January, 2015. He is someone who loves travel, who did a lot of treks & likes cycling a lot!!
       We went for parasailing there in Goa & had lots of fun during that trip. So I wanted to make a card incorporating all of those memories into it. 

       So tried a masculine card for the first time ever & love how it came out.

       I used Distress inks to paint the background, creating a secluded beach, the sea & the sky!!.

       Then used Archival black ink to stamp some wild flowers & a fence.

       Then I drew the images of a cycle, a sail boat & a chute. Colored them using sketch pens & fussy cut them.

       Pasted them onto the front panel & stamped the rope of the chute!! Used glossy accents on them liberally.

       Pasted the panel to a black card stock.

       On the inside of the card, I drew the San Francisco Golden Gate bridge to remind him of the short trip he took there a few weeks back!!

       Them stamped a few more images & embossed them using Ranger white embossing powder!!

       That finishes the card & I hope he likes it!!

       A few more images, zoomed in!!
       The Ranger glossy accents is just fab

Mixed Media Canvas ~ Happy Birthday ♥♥

       Hi friends, good day!!
       Sharing with you a mixed media canvas I made for friend's daughter who is celebrating her 1st birthday this week. 
       It's been a few weeks since I did a mixed media work & I enjoyed the process. 

       I took a Brustro's canvas board & pasted several layers of torn & crumpled tissue paper.
       Then applied a coat of gesso & used texture paste with Crafters Workshop & Tim Holtz stencils to create some texture. 

       Colored using Distress ink first but then switched to pink & green spray paint to add some bright colors. 
       Then brushed golden colored Inka Gold liberally over the textured area to give it a shine. And I must say I am totally in love with Inka Gold 

       Then I used pink & green pearlized card stock to give a frame for the kid's photo. I went with shades of pink, red, green, orange & gold to match the photo I'm using.

       Then used a flourishes stamp from ItsyBitsy to add some gold embossing to the canvas.

       Fussy cut some gold embossed leaves to added to the decor.

       Once done I applied gloss medium onto some paper flowers from ItsyBitsy & used them as decor along with the leaves. Added glossy accents to create the drops!!

       Name at the bottom handwritten & embossed with Ranger black embossing powder & highlights done with Signo white pen.

       Hand written sentiment at the back.

       Few more snaps I took!!

       Yay,, I'm done
