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?

Hiya Crafties!

I love to color. With any medium I can get my hands on! Whether the final coloring looks awesome is another matter! 😜

I am entering today’s card in the MFT 2019 Card Design Superstar – Coloring Virtuoso

For this card, I used the Safari Friends stamp set by MFT.

This is my first time doing the no-line coloring technique with alcohol markers!

And boy was it challenging! 😥

For the stamping I used the MFT premium dye ink in Grout Gray.

I love that ink for its subtle color! ❤

I wanted to create a postcard scene with animals.

I used the cloud stencil by MFT along with Peacock Feathers distress oxide for the sky.

This is how the scene looked after stamping and before coloring!

And the final coloring :

The trees are stamped with log stamp image form the MFT Happy Hedgehogs stamp set.

And the leaves on the trees are from the MFT Safari friends stamp set itself!

I love creating happy scenes and this card was one of them!

Would love to know your FEEDBACK !!

Pop Art

Hi Crafties!

I have a Pop Art card that I made for MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar – Coloring Virtuoso

Do you know what Pop Art is? I am always awed by pop art drawings.

Citing Wikipedia :

Pop art is an art movement that emerged in Britain and the United States during the mid- to late-1950s.

The movement presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular and mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects.

One of its aims is to use images of popular (as opposed to elitist) culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any culture, most often through the use of irony.
It is also associated with the artists’ use of mechanical means of reproduction or rendering techniques. In pop art, material is sometimes visually removed from its known context, isolated, or combined with unrelated material.

For my card, I was inspired by Andy Warhol’s pop art drawings.

I used the pineapple stamp image from the BB Polynesian Paradise stamp set by My Favorite Things (MFT).

I first divided my panel into nine equal squares.

I then stamped the image nine times using my Misti and colored it with brush pens.

The sentiment is also from the same set.

I then stuck my panel on an A2 card base.

I took an unnecessary long time deciding the position of the sentiment. Whether to stamp in the middle or in the right!

Does this happen to you too? If the answer is yes, then we can safely say that “Great minds think alike”😉.

I have wanted to make a pop art card since a long time.

I love the contrasting effect that the various colors are having on the eyes. Hope I did justice to this card.

Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.
