New Technique using distress ink!

Heyya Sweet Crafters!! :)

Its been a while since my last post! I had a short trip to one of the beautiful beaches of Konkan area!

So, I am playing along a few challenges! I came up with this card-

 As you all know, I love playing with distress ink! That day, I saw a video of Jennifer McGuire showcasing distress ink lifting. I thought why not try something like this using a stencil! Looks like I found a new technique altogether (which I was not aware of before whether it existed or not :P )

I started with masking the card base with washi tape to make that sketch. I used Seedless preserves, Salty ocean and Peakcock Feathers to sponge the background. Later, I covered the card with ARTplorations - Tribal Swirls stencil. I used water brush over the exposed area and wiped it using baby wipes. (I know it is a lot of work but the results are amazing! )The ink lifting worked wonders and I was happy with the result. Let me know if you want a video of it, if more people ask for it, I will definitely make one! :)

I added a few sequins to finish up this one layer card. And yes, the sentiment is also multicolored using DI. :)

I am entering this card for-

Before ending, I want to share with you the click of a romantic sunset of Konkan -Laadghar beach! :)

STAMPlorations Feb Challenge - Stamps & triplets

 ** My Giveaway LINK **

Heyyaaa Crafting ladies!! :)

Wow! This is my very first post for STAMPlorations as a DT! :)

For Feb, we have theme and sketch as on the STAMPlorations blog -

So, my card here for February is using the THEME.

For the card, I have used Three types of balloons in a group of three and have used three distress ink colors! (That's so many threes! :))

I masked the stamps and colored them using distress ink - Worn lipstick, Picked raspberry and Fire brick! The stamp set is from Dee's Artsy Impressions - Balloons and Banners. I also stamped the background using same stamp set.

The sentiment was heat embossed using Versamark and Golden embossing powder on vellum to add shine. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations-Bloom sketches. Here is a close-up of my card! I used three sequins on the card too! ;)

Hope you liked my card?

February Lulupu Challenge #58 - Designer Post

Heyyaaa Dear Crafters!! :)

Today I am gonna share with you all THREE cards! 

As you know the theme this month is use Hearts & arrows both in your project- I started off by choosing to make cards!(Obviously, my first choice!)

I received Your Next Stamps- Perfect Chemistry in my DT kit. Oh! These stamps are adorable, I tell you! I am showcasing Notes & Things paper pads which you can find HERE on the Lulupu store.

I made a fancy fold card..Ekkkk!! I love to make slider cards! I colored this adorable crazy professor using distress ink and Koi water color brush. You can find a great range of ink pads HERE on the store.

When you pull that tag out, you can find this sentiment stamped over it! :) I used hearts & arrows patterned paper for this card and used repeated stamping technique for the bottom panel.

In my second card, I have showcased the use of repeated stamping where I stamped that bulb stamp from the same stamp set over the card base. I also stamped those hearts and arrows. Later, I water colored one bulb stamp using Mr.Huey's water colors. I have used regeneration stamping technique for the sentiment to give addition effect. ;)

For my third card, I made a collage out of patterned papers and clung them using a clamp. The beaker and test tube stamps were first stamped on a white card paper and colored using water colors. I later, paper pieced them on the card base. The washi tape is from Lulupu store which you can find HERE. :)

Hope you enjoyed seeing these cards and found some inspiration! :)

You can find the guidelines to join this challenge HERE. I hope see you guys join and see how YOU interpret this theme!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
