Quilled love!!

Good evening guys!

How have you all been doing?

I can't describe in words how much I have missed crafting ant the whole craft community.  But my love was reawakened by Shylaa,  when she offered me an opportunity to be on the Design Team of IQCG. So here I am back again with a promise of at least one post every month to myself and everyone reading this.

This year on IQCG we are having challenges based on a color palette.  And the color palette for February is:

For my DT inspiration,  I have created a quilled heart with a beautiful butterfly hidden inside. Here is my inspiration :

Chalkboard Technique!

Hello Crafters!

I have a good news to share with you all. I got MS-ENT in my home town through PG entrance exams...Extremely happy and excited for the new things that are waiting for me ahead. So now on wards I won't be able to be able to blog that much. Will surely miss creating cards.

But before that I do have one card to share with you all. On this card I have tried chalkboard technique for the very first time. The first card that I had ever seen using this technique was made by my dear friend Pooja. And I always wanted to try it out. So made this card this card taking into consideration the ongoing Mudra Challenge.
Chalkboard Technique

Chalkboard Technique

To make this one:
  • Took a black sheet and cut out a semi-circle. Created the chalkboard look using embossing buddy.
  • Stamped Mudra's Elegant Damask Stamp using white versafine pigment ink to create a BG. Placed the sheet on the white card base. 
  • Stamped Mudra's Zinnia Stamp using versamark black pigment ink and colored it using Faber-Castell Pencils. Added dots using silver pen to add more interest.
  • Added the fuzzy cut and embossed flower to the card using foam tape along with hand-cut few leaves.
  • Stamped the sentiment from Craftyscrappers Purrfect Pair and added sequins and golden washi tape to complete it.
