Interactive card: friends for life


    Here's an interactive card i made..

The images are from itsybitsy bear stamp set..
For the bear i used memento london fog ink to stamp the image (to achieve a no line watercolor look)

black soot and worn lipstick distress inks to color.. The shades achieved by different level of ditutions.. Added fine lines to add more depth and texture..

The flower bouquet stamped with archival ink, colored with spun sugar, worn lipstick, mustard seed & mowed lawn.. I also heat embossed the flowers with wow clear glitter embossing powder & zig embossing brush pen..

Honey jar colored with same color scheme & the hearts with my usual fav technique, wink of stella clear glitter & glossy accents..

Did the sliding mechanism using coin & foam squares..

For the background i drew some squiggly lines with grey & pink sketch pens, added some flowers with Wow platinum sparkle embossing powder..

The pink was quite striking so i used uniball signo white pen to mute down & add more texture as well..

Sentiment is from Penny Black eloquence stamp set using memento Rosebud ink..

Hope you liked this little project of mine :)

Altered art : vase

  Here's another fun altered art project i made for the guest designer post over at the Lulupu blog :)

It started with an empty conditioner bottle ;) 

I covered the whole bottle with scraps from a very old novel ( I got a set of 5 books for 5 rupees in Pondicherry!!) With mixture of equal amounts of PVA glue(i used fevicol) and water.. I find foam brush works best for this..

Then wound a packaging hemp twine around the neck of the bottle giving a good coat of glue to avoid frizziness & seal all the fibres in.. I added gesso randomly over the surface.

I used Dylusions paint (vibrant turquoise, fresh lime) to paint the bottle in random patterns blending all the way with a wet baby wipe.. Added some white gesso splashes.

Did some random stamping With kaisercraft texture stamps (faded dots, geo) & also the sentiment from Inkadinkado stampset with black archival ink..
Gave a coat of Mod podge gloss to seal the whole surface & to add that little shine..

For the embellishments, i made the flowers using the paper from the same old book following the classical paper flower making technique.. Inked on both sides of paper using distress inks (mowed lawn, broken china, peacock feathers) applied gel medium (camlin) to seal the ink..Then Cut a spiral out of it with Faber castell scalloped edge scissors & rolled into a flower..

Added a twin bow made of the hemp twine & a metal charm..

The big flower is made out of Papericious Teal Steal patterned paper collection with WRMK flower punch board.. (XS & XXS size) secured with a brad.. For the stem, Stuck green tape around a bendable wire & attached the loop to the brad.. Hence the flower sways beautifully which formed the inspiration behind the quote "Dance to your own music" :D

I hope you liked it & the steps were of some help :) I would be glad to hear ur thoughts on this :)

mini art jounal layout Raksha Bandan

Here's page 6 of my mini art journal layout based on Raksha Bandan celebs...

   Started with Distress inks (mustard seed, wild honey, spiced marmalade) & did some water splotches to achieve more texture & also used quite a few layering stenclis to build more interest on the bg..

I started off by drawing a flower & cutting it out of an orange foam sheet.. Layered with yellow circle  & a shwastik..
Added some say it in crystals pearl.. I added 3D glitter gold around the petals but unfortunately the gold didn't quite show up & looked mostly like a clear glue..
I cut some gold confetti lying around in my home & added at the back & embroidery twine made into a braided rope..

I drew the diyas with gold alcohol marker & colored with distress inks..
Wrote the sentiment with Staedtler fine liner & uniball signo white gel pen..

Added some gold & copper sequins to finish off my layout :)
