I haven't tried this technique before so it's my first attempt. Here is my card..


I enjoyed this a lot. Did mistakes in start but with few trial n error result is this. :)
Used Whimsy stamps- 'Sweetheart' for the image. I love love love this stamp.... <3 For coloring I used water based sketch pens and Faber Castell color pencils too. Swirl has done with gold n silwer giltter tubes. Sentiment stamp is from Justrite stamps.

For side panel I have used patterned lace from my stash and burlap tape. Used this burlap tape for making a flower base too.

Small Explosion Card!!

Hello All!!

I made this Box card earlier and forgot to share with you all...So sharing today.. :)



Made this box with 2 8x8" scalloped square papers. One used for base n one for lid. I made this orange patterned flower for embellishment and also made some more flowers from magazine papers which I pasted inside. I just scored the scalloped line of the lid paper and floded it upper side so the closed box looks different than regular. Stamped some cup cakes too :)

Hope you like this. TIA.. :)

Playing around the stamp!!

Hello all!!

Posting after a long time. Was busy with settling things n live in US. Now a bit relaxed and back on my blog. Husssshhhhhh!!!!!!!
