A Clean and Simple Encouraging Card | MFT Clean and Simple 2021

Hello Crafties!

Creating a clean and Simple card can be pretty challenging! Especially when you have the urge to continuously add something here and there!

But challenges are supposed to be won over! Today’s card does just that! ❤️

I stamped the seagull and the clouds from the MFT Seaside Seagulls stamp set. I decide to keep the images pretty simple and left them as is.

The important part was the sky. I decided to do dot painting with my acrylic marker pens. (I received these markers as a birthday gift and have been wanting to try them ever since).

For getting the curved shape of the sky, I used the MFT Snow Drifts Cover-up Die-namics for outlining. 👇🏻

And then trusting the process (quite a difficult task if you ask me) I started my dot painting. I used four different colours to achieve the shaded sky effect!

Finally I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in a curved way.

Voila! My clean and simple was ready! Did you like my idea of dot painting the sky? Would you create a similar card?

If you do, then please Post your card pics and tag me on Instagram! ❤️

You Make My Life Magical – MFT Superstar 2020 Coloring Virtuoso

Hello Crafties!

I love to color. Period. There is no specific reason as to why I do.

Well, no, actually there are, a lot of reasons I mean. Coloring calms my mind. It increases my concentration.

It increases my sense of worth (a tiny bit atleast) when people (read : family) go gaga over my coloring. Well the list is endless.

It’s a kind of meditation for me, where I actually lose track of time.

See, I actually lost track of time, just talking about coloring!

This is my entry to the Coloring Virtuoso category from the MFT Superstar contest.

I created a pretty little scene around the Eiffel Tower (it’s my dream to visit it with my family) with beautiful trees and a soothing sky. I wanted to create a postcard kinda card : that reminds anyone of the magical time they must have spent on the Tower for the ones who have visited it. And also create a sense of contentment and magic to those who one day wish to visit it!

For the scene, I used the principle of one point perspective to give a 3-dimensional effect.

The Eiffel Tower is diecut from the ‘Eiffel Tower- dienamics’ by MFT. I used black cardstock to add a sense of drama to the card.

I used a mixture of my Koi watercolor set and my Zig clean color real brush pens.

I used my Zigs for the trees and leaves. And my Koi watercolors for the blending of the sky.

The sentiment is from the ‘Magical Dragons’ stamp set by MFT.

Well, I truly believe that the Eiffel Tower is a symbol of Love. And what is more Magical than Love?

Do let me know in the comments below what are your views on magic and love.
