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?

I Miss You A Latte | Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Fall/Winter Blog Hop 2019

Hi Crafties!

One can never have enough coffee, right? Neither can I have enough coffee cards! πŸ˜†

This is a sweet coffee card made using stamps by Sunny Studio.

I created splatters in the background using watercolours!

I colored the images with watercolor markers and fussy cut them.

It was a very quick card to make given the simplicity.

I finished off the card with nuvo drops!

Though I messed up the background a bit just as I finished making the card.

Can you spot it?

Always Flowers!

Hello Crafties!

Flowers are always a good idea. That’s why I made a pop up box card full of flowers.

I used Pinkfresh Studio stamp set ‘Always Flowers’ for the same.

Below is the video of the card :

The base of the box card is created using the Scalloped Box Card dieset by Lawn Fawn.

I colored the images with my Koi watercolor set in warm hues. I then fussy cut the flowers and adhered them on the box card.

I watercolored the panels too!

The sentiment is by Your Next Stamp.

The individual flowers were adhered on strips of acetate. I also added 2 honey bees from the same set to resemble a garden.

I made this card for a friend.

Hope this card full of flowers made you happy.

A Shiny Congratulations!

Hey Crafties!

I love shine and sparkle, especially in my cards. So wherever I can, I try to use products that do so.

For my card today, I have again used WOW Gold Metal Rich Superfine embossing powder. I just love this powder.

The Mandala stamp by Studio Katia is so pretty. I had been wanting this stamp ever since I saw it.

I first watercolored the background in an ombrΓ© effect using Koi watercolors with different colors of green.
I then heat embossed the stamp with the above powder.

I also heat embossed the sentiment which is from the Altenew set- Celebrations. That is aother set which I had been drooling over since a long time.

The stripes stamp is by Craftyscrappers.

I finished off the card with green jewels, again from Studio Katia. Aren’t they so pretty?

Faux Metal Butterfly Embellishment Card

Hello Crafties!

Butterflies are a universal symbol for good things to come. Like snowflakes, every butterfly is unique.

For my card today, I have created a faux metal butterfly.

I have used WOW Metallic Gold Rich superfine embossing powder to achieve this metallic effect.

Stacking 3 layers of butterfly diecuts by Frantic Stamper, I heat embossed them 3 times with the above embossing powder.

This technique has been shown by Jennifer Mcguire. You can find her tutorial here.

The faux metal butterfly looks way more prettier in real.

The sentiment I used is by Jillibean Soup.

The background is watercolored with Koi watercolors.

I finished off the card with Ebony Nuvo drops.

Beary Wishes

Hey Crafties!

In my earlier post, I used watercolors to create a background.

This card uses watercolors too though the finished card looks entirely different.

I used shades of blue for my background.

I then took MFT dienamics Snow drifts Coverup and didn’t use the frame just the positives. Mounted the pieces on foam tape.

The cute bear is from Janes Doodles stamp set. I watercolored it with brush markers.

The sentiment is from Itsy bitsy.

The Pink Leaf

Hello Crafties!

Watercoloring is such a stress buster. And the awesome thing about watercoloring is that there is no right or wrong.

Everything is art!

For this card, I watercolored with my Koi watercolors in shades of pink using lots of water on watercolor cardstock.

I then used the Paper smooches leaf-die for the focal point.

The sentiment is by Honey bee stamps.

Added sequins to complete the card!
