Chrysanthemum Bloom

Popping up today to share a colorful card.

I used a stencil of the bloom (chrysanthemum) to color it. The stencil has sparse petals so I layered petals in different colors(water color pencils) by offsetting the stencil each time making sure they overlap. Kept repeating it till I was happy with the volume of the petals. Added some shading and details using white gel pen.

I did botch up a little while adding the grey shade around the flower, it did not come out smooth. Finally added the embossed sentiment at one side and added a border all around using black gel pen.

I hope you like it and share your thoughts on same. Have a great day!

Watercolour Flowers

Hope you are having a great start to the new week!

Last month I did not do much of blogging as I was completely out of ideas . I am trying to slowing come back and trying to create whatever I can. Moving to my card, I have done simple water coloring using DI.I really enjoy coloring using whatever medium, it is so relieving.

The flowers and leaves are drawn freehand and added a sentiment. Added some splatter as well.

That's it for today, hope you like it. Thanks for visiting :)

Added the pre colored flower and leaves with the birthday sentiment. Then put a tassel at bottom and matching ribbon on top. To finish added few sequins.

Another Birthday Card....

Hope you are having a rocking start to your week! Today, I am sharing a birthday card.

Here's the front of the card, looks plain. I wanted to make it look something like distressed frames that we get, using the border stamp(Itsy Bitsy)  The center is the vellum. Nothing else here except two tiny stones at the bottom right corner (which is not noticeable until I mention !)

Then we open it and....blooms!!!

I was not able to capture the colors that well but in real it is much vibrant. The coloring is done using watercolor pencils and few details using black and white gel pen.

That's all for today. Thanks for visiting. Do let me know your thoughts on the card.

Generation Stamping

Hello Folks,
Today I am sharing a card using the generation stamping technique. This was the first attempt for me so there were some hits and some misses.

Let me share the card first

I used Memento dye ink in two colors for stamping the butterflies (Mudra - Beautiful butterflies) and added color using Staedtler water color pencil. As you can see I did not get a clear first generation stamping and even lighter the second generation one. So I highlighted some features using the water color pencil.

For the sentiment(Mudra - Beautiful butterflies), I used two dye inks to get the ombre effect. Finally added some splatter and matching washi to finish the card. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!!

I was inspired by some challenges for this card
