You are special

  Here's a watercolor card i made :)

I recently went on a trip to Darjeeling & Gangtok where i visited the flower garden. It was full of orchid flowers in every mesmerizing color combination one could possibpy imagine. Orchids are always in my list of loveables & this experience just increased my affinity towards those beautiful beings :)
This is just an initial experimental version & am hoping to do more of orchid paintings in the future :)
Please excuse this loooonng story of mine ;)

I made a rough sketch on scrap white paper & transferred the fair outline on to the watercolor paper(Brustro's)
I've followed the emboss resist technique to color this one.
I used Zig embossing pen (brush tip) to draw over the outline & heat embossed with Ranger white embossing powder.

Colored the image with spun sugar, memento rosebud,lilac posies, sweet plum for the flower &  shabby shutters, mowed lawn, memento dandelion inks for the stem & leaves using Koi waterbrush. (Yes am addicted to that little tool;))
Distressed the edges with broken china & salty ocean DI.

Stuck the panel onto textured purple cardbase (Fabriano). I've done some random stamping & brush lettering for the sentiment "you are special". Got tonnes to improve in that area..!!!
I've also stamped a birthday greeting inside :)

Hope you liked it.

Altered art

  Here's an altered art project i've done :) am using more embellishments for the first time & am absolutely loving the creation process :)

Well wanna know how it all started?!

It's from this bottle which always attracted my attention for the interesting shape ;) am happy about recycling plastic this way :)

I coated the bottle with gesso. I've applied pearl green, sap green acrylic colors for the bg with brush followed by some misting with sap green+bronzer mixture..

I also added some vintage photo distress inks on the edges to give that antique look..
I've used black & metallic gold acylic colors for the cap..
I've filled the bottle with pebbles to add weight so that it doesn't fall off. (Original bottle is ultra light)


I've used PP from time traveller collection & distressed it. Sentiment is from heidi swapp collection.

I've cut the clock image from the same PP collection, stuck it to a round glass cabochon & placed it on the metal frame setting.

Butterflies are stamped using Kaisercraft bg stamp with memento tuxedo black ink on some random scrap PPs from my stash & then fussy cut.

Mulberry roses, bird house & fan metal embellishments are covered with metallic copper, gold & silver acrylics. Same goes for the butterfly resin embellishment in the centre (pearl black too for the shading)

Lace is from Prima i guess. I got it from a kit.

The golden twine is present forever in my stash lol :) Dat kinda completed my project & brought everything together :)

Done. Hope you liked it.
Do lemme know ur comments. They mean a lot to me.
Thanks for your time.
Create. Have fun.

Scenery card

Hi everyone. .
  There was a drastic issue with my web hosting site & my website got suspended for sometime..
Though it is resolved temporarily am not sure about the future :(
Am planning to back up the posts in blogger (I find it less user friendly than wordpress:( ).
So all the sadness apart, Here is a bright card for a fresh start :)


One of my friends liked this card of mine so much. So I modified it a little bit & also personalised the cycle exactly like his own :)


I drew & cut cloud shape from ohp sheet & used it as stencil to make the bg. I've used salty ocean DI.
I also cut out those mounds from green papers (computer paper & handmade paper)
The cycle is a large one from wood veneer transport collection.  Colored with inks as well as pens.added glossy accents over it.
The banner was colored with watercolor pencils. Sentiment written with pen & stencil.
Flowers were stamped, colored & fussy cut.
I've stuck the layers with foam tape to add dimension.
Here's the inside.


Hope you liked it.
