My new buy and a new card!

Helloo Dearest Friends!! :)
It is end of June already! The time flies like anything! :)

I have made a delicate card using acetate for you all! This is my first because the ones that I had made earlier using acetate are interactive cards!

I got myself a new stamp set -again a first, Altenew stamp set- Wild Hibiscus! I LOVEEE it! Here is what I made-

For the inner page , I used ghosting technique( I made another! ;) ) using distress inks and STAMPlorations stencil- Leaf Prints. I also masked the borders. The sentiment is from "My Favorite Things-Adorable Elephant ' stamp set.

Later on, I stamped and heat embossed Altenew Wild Hibiscus flowers over vellum using Ranger's White Embossing powder and Versamark. I colored them using distress inks again.  :)

Hope you liked my new fresh color card? I was inspired by the colors over Altenew June Challenge. I must say it was really difficult to photograph an acetate card!

Ghosting and Distress ink!

Helloo Dear Bloggers!! :)

It has been a while since I posted only for playing along the craft challenges! 

Today, I am sharing with you all a card for which I have used water coloring using distress ink.

Here is my card-

I applied ghosting technique for the background. I have used Picked raspberry, Mustard seed and Peakcock feathers for the background and masked the borders while sponging. The stencil is from Craftslane and flowers are from Indian stamp company-Mudra. The flowers were also masked! :)

I loved the way it turned out! Thought it would go without a sentiment! What do you think?
