Chemistry with MFT for HLS water colour challenge – April 23

Namaste, welcome to my blog for April 23 water colour challenge. The theme of the challenge is Die cut. I actually wanted to use this cute set so made 2 cards. For more information on challenge and rules please visit here.

I loved these cute images from MFT and i coloured them with Zig markers. I wanted to keep the card simple with minimal layers. Used co-ordinating card base and didtress inks to blend on front panel. Sentiments are from Unenviable chemistry, i used essential speech bubble die for sentiments.

I also added few die cuts and stamped few images on the card front for texture and interest.

Thank you for visiting.. Let me know which one you liked among the two..

Hls water colour challenge – March 2023

Namaste, welcome to my blog. We at HLS challenges had 2 months vacation and now we are back with new challenges. This month its Anything goes- Wings, for more details about challenge you can visit link.

Previously i coloured alot of images. I am not a person who keeps elements ready and make as and when needed. It feels too much for me and drains my creativity. But after becoming mother my son taught me its BETTER TO BE READY THAN BEING SORRY. So i stamp and colour images whenever possible.

And for 2023 i have decided to make atleast 2 cards instead of making one. So its a good way to try 2 designs with similar elements. So to make these cards i just had to arrange elements as everything was ready.

Which card you liked? I loved the brightness of these cards. I so struggle with keeping everything white.

CAS birthday card AAA #45

Namaste, welcome to my blog. Its new calendar year and new challenge at AAA birthday challenge. The theme of the challenge is Anything goes with birthday theme. For more details visit blog here.

Ink blending was always my favourite technique. But right now all my ink pads are dry so i cant use them. Its story of every year so i stopped reinking them. But for the first challenge of the calendar year so I ink blended small piece of paper and die cut it to make my card center and stamped a small sentiment which fits perfectly in this small space.

I dry embossed the card panel and added the ink blended piece on card front. For interest i used silver thread behind the sentiment and few enamel dots.

Here is my card

Just saying hello

Namaste to everyone.

I hope and pray everyone is doing good and staying safe.

Today I am sharing a dimensional floral card I created. I love such dimensional card but I am not at all good at them. Once in a while I get lucky and make one such card. I have used 3layers of petals for each flower.

I made this card using all My Favourite Things dies. I used distress inks to colour flowers, in the background i used mft rectangle frame dinamics and went over borad with flower arrangment so much that one can’t make it out. I love the shimmer of perfect pearls.

I used Hero arts stamp for sentiment, which heat embossed on a black strip of cs. I created background using distress inks on HNDMD handmade water colour cs, I am in love with this cs.

Swapna here to share my take on ATSM CAS challeneg. For more details and inspiration click HERE.

My take on the challenge

  • I used Mudra stencil to make my background using distress ink.
  • I diecut flower and twig with My favourite things die.
  • I used 4 diecuts each for flower and twig for stability and dimension.
  • Sentiment is from another MFT set.
  • I didnt embelish the card and kept it very simple.
