Playing with water and colors!

Heyyaaaa Dear Stampers!! Happy Friday to you all! :)

This is my other card! You remember , right? I had shared sneak peek of it in my last post! Well, here it is! 

For the card, I smooshed the background using distress inks - mustard seed, peacock feathers and picked raspberry. Later, I adhered a colorful strip patterned paper. The flowers are from STAMPlorations- Bloom sketches. I stamped them using Black soot DI and shaded with grey colored water colors. :)

I am entering this card for-

Lawnscaping Challenge - Watercoloring. I have used grey colored water color to color those flowers and using distress ink for smooshing.

Happy Little Stampers - CASEing Kylie

I was inspired by the smooshed watercolored background and black colored sentiment over it. :)

A-MUSE-ing mark! ;)

Helloooo Sweetttt Crafters!!!! :)
I made two colorful cards! One I am sharing now and I will share the sneak peek of the other one!

Let me show you my card-

I used Fiskars- Petals from scratch stamp set for stamping those sketchy flowers. I used many colors of distress ink. Then later I colored a few of them using Koi water brush. I stamped the sentiment using pigment ink and STAMPlorations- Bold sentiment stamp.

My card was inspired by this week's MUSE Challenge # 149. Tracey made this gorgeous card. I was inspired by the flowers and leaves and the white+green+white layer. :)

I am also entering it for Addicted to Stamps#177 - make your mark challenge. I have used water brush and water colors to make my mark on the card!


Before ending, here is the sneak peek of my second colorful card- I will share it with you all soon! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

An Ombre Blue card!

Helllooo Dear Friendssss!! :)

Hope you had a fun-filled weekend? I am playing along a few challenges and hence, I thought of making an Ombre card!

I started by heat embossing a panel using Clear embossing powder from Ranger and "Bo Bunny -It is written" stamp set. I used ink-bleeding technique to color the panel Ombre. Then I heat embossed  (stamp from STAMPlorations-Bloom Sketches) using white embossing powder on Vellum. I colored those flowers with the shades of blue! 
Later, I stamped the sentiment using "Bold sentiment from STAMPlorations" and was done! :)

Bold Colored card!

Hellooo Sweet Friends!! :)

I am back and this time with a bright card - showing off bold colors! :)
Here it is!

I started by heat embossing using Ranger's Clear embossing powder (my new buy) and Versamark. Later, I sponged using Mustard seed and Mowed lawn distress ink.

The script stamp is from Bo Bunny- it is written. The script stamp is not the first impression but these are second and third impressions on the card base to give off lighter and darker shades of the text!

The butterfly is from STAMPlorations Trendy Butterfly stamp set on a sparkling card-base and sentiment from Bloom Sketches.

I am playing along-

"Hoppy Birthday" Frogs!

Helloooo Ladiess!!! :)

I am having fun with my new stamp set and decided to make one more card using Jane's Doodles "Garden Friends"!

Here is my card-

I stamped those frogs (aren't they cute? ) , colored them using distress inks and fussy cut them. The card base was stamped using STAMPlorations Vignette Retro Mod shapes (U bet! I ADORE this stamp! And am going crazy using it! ;) ) I have created a Bokeh effect for the background. 

I have adhered those frogs and the balloon using double sided glue tape. The balloon is from Dee's Artsy Impression - Balloons and banners. The one frog who has elevated is the one I have colored differently than the other two! ;)

I played along Time Out Challenges # 47- Birthday with an optional twist of sponging


Waiting to share one big news for tomorrow! :)
