Post 271: Mixed Media Card (Butterflies)

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Mixed Media Card I made. This was for my DT post for Bob n Betty. You can check out all the details and photo tutorial here. I am slowly sharing projects on my blog as and when I get the time.

I love butterflies so this was fun to make. I worked with faux leather for the first time and was happy that it could be easily die cut.

Synopsis of the Process: This is a 6 by 6 top folding card. Basically I created layers and textures with pattern paper, die cuts, lace and gauze. Stamping was done in the background and color was added using zig markers. I created simple paper flowers to embellish the project by die cutting pattern paper. 

List of Supplies:
Bob n Betty's Faux Leather
Bob n Betty Feel like a butterfly and No One But You Paper Pack
Prima's Heavy White Gesso
Baby Pink Cardstock 300 gsm
Gauze
Kaisercraft stamp- Botanicals
Ranger's Archival Jet Black Ink
Tombow Mono Multi Glue
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Pearl Lace
Twine
Gina Marie Designs Butterfly XL die
Cheery Lynn Designs- Tea Rose Medium Die

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Butterfly Challenge #85 - stamped silhouette butterflies in the background on the pattern paper and added a wee bit of black watercolor drips (zig markers) which look indigo on top of the pink when watered down. 

Thanks for your time :)

Post 267: Festival Card (Blessings)

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a card today. This was made for a Guest Design post for Craftreat. All the details can be checked out here. I'm slowly sharing the projects on my blog as I get the time.

For this festival card, I’ve done ink blending through the Indian Motifs stencil using 2 shades of distress oxides (fossilized amber and spiced marmalade) and then accentuated the design by adding a few details with a red brush marker. Stamped the om and shree in green archival ink and added the main sentiment "blessings". The word was die cut twice, colored in 2 shades of green, then glued slightly off centre to get a shadow effect. Added the moli thread as an embellishment and also for its significance in Hindu customs.

List of Supplies:
Cutplorations Word Die- Blessings 
Mudra Craft Stamps- Om Shree
Winnie & Walter Essentials: Audrey Cutaways
White Cardstock 250 gsm
Craftreat Stencil- Indian Motifs
Gems
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Distress Oxide Inkpads- Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio & Fossilized Amber
Ranger's Archival Ink- Emerald Green
Tombow Mono Multi Glue
3d Foam Tape
Moli Thread

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a card today. This was made for a Guest Design post for Craftreat. All the details can be checked out here. I'm slowly sharing the projects on my blog as I get the time. 

For this celebration card, I’ve done ink blending through the Fireworks Stencil using 3 shades of distress oxides (spiced marmalade, worn lipstick and fossilized amber) and then stamped on some more fireworks and the sentiment with the same inks. It is important to remember that distress oxides become lighter in color after some time. In the end, I added a bit of sparkle with pink stickles and gold star sequins.

Mudra Craft Stamps- Crackers 
White Cardstock 250 gsm
Craftreat Stencil- Fireworks
