Bookmarks blast!!

Hey there..
Today sharing some bookmarks which I was making from past few days. It's a picture heavy post as I mesmerized with my own creation and clicked so many pics of :D 
Here is first picture of my colorful bookmarks...

I used my Altenew-'Hennah Elements' stamp set for this. Bought this stamp set few days ago and that's my first creation with this set. I didn't use the whole set in this..used only 2 flowers (big n small) and one leaf stamp for my BMs.

First I stamped all the flowers on Neenah Solar White CS with Varsafine black ink and started coloring with Zig Brush Markers, Fabercastell watercolor pencils and my new buy Staedtler-Triplus Fineliner .3mm pens. These pens are water based and great for doodling and coloring.

I did some hennah doodling on flowers with those fine tip pens after coloring. Fussy cut all the stamped flowers and added glitter on the edges and center. 

All the leaves have colored with Zig brush markers and added glitter on them too. Adhered leaves on the back side of big flowers and added Baker Twines. Glued half pearls on the small flowers and attached them on the other side of the BT.

Hope you have enjoyed this picture post of my bookmarks. Leave some love here..would love to read.. :)
That's it for today..TIA!!

Happy crafting!!

My first post as DT for TTPH !!

Hey there...

Today I'm sharing a good news with all of you. I'm selected as DT (Design Team) member for Through The Purple Haze challenge  blog. It's my first post for TTPH challenge. Challenge theme is - 'Add a Number'. You can find the challenge link HERE and don't forget to participate.. :)

Here is my take for the challenge..

Made a card with this lovely image-'Fairy' from our sponsor (link is above as Shaylee) and colored with Zig Brush Markers + water. For hair..I didn't use water and coloring done with Zig shades number 062, 066 and 072. I tried to make a video about coloring hair with Zig markers...soon will upload on my Youtube channel. :)

Here is a close up of my coloring. Love this Fairy image a lot :)

I added number 16 (from Altenew 2016 stamp set) to this image and Sweet is hand written. As I found her Sweet ;)
Used my Faber Castell pencils too for highlighting some parts like feathers and dress.

Shades of Blue and Gray!!

Hey there...
Today sharing a card which I made yesterday with my new buy Altenew- 'Persian Motifs' stamp set๐Ÿ˜Š This is my first card with this stamp set and my love for Altenew is increasing day by day...:) 
Here is my card..

I started with Neenah Solar White CS and stamped these motifs with Altenew- ButterCream ink first. Then started coloring with Zig Clean Real Brush Pens+ water. Used this month Altenew challenge colors for this. After coloring I restamped with Altenew-Jet Black ink...but this time slightly aside from the previously one to create a shadow kinda effect. Then I used my watebased Faber Castell color pencils and gave strokes on my motifs. Didn't use water with pencils. Finally gave some splatters on that and adhered this on a gray paper which is from my stash....:-)

Here is one more pic of my card..

For base used Fabriano-Elle-Erre 210gsm CS and stamped some motifs again here n there to create a background with Memento-London Fog ink. Then used my Signo White Gel Pen for this white look... :)
Adhered the colored panel on the base CS and embellished with stone. Sentiment is from this stamp set only.

Here are some close ups of my coloring..

Hope you like my card. I'm very happy with my Altenew stamps...worth to buy. :)

Painted Flowers Beauty!!

Hey there...
Today sharing a greeting card which has turned out beautifully(as I think about my card..) in just half an hour. Yes!! You heard it right :D 
I didn't plan anything and just started playing with my most favorite Altenew- Painted Flowers stamp set with my new buy Altenew ink-Red Cosmos. 
Here is my card...

Beautiful!!... naa?? lol.. I stamped these layered flowers with Altenew inks- 'Ruby Red', 'Coral Berry' & 'Frosty Pink'. For leaves used Altenew inks- 'Evergreen' & 'Forest Glades'. These are Crisp Dye Inks. Liked them a lot. :)
The base layer or you can say the starting layer stamped with Altenew- Jet Black ink. I stamped some flower buds n leaves too here and there to create a bouquet on my card. Colored them with matching shades to the inks, of Fabercastell Watercolor Pencils. Gave a lighter green shadow all around the bouquet with this pencil too. :)

Here is the close up so you can see the shadowing part...

Sentiment is again from Altenew- 'Label Love'. That's my new buy too. Used this stamp set first time in this card. Used 'Coral Berry' ink again for this Happy Birthday sentiment. Added some rhinestones  and finished my card.

Hope you all like it. Thanks for stopping by.. :)

Happy carfting!!

Quick card- Congratulations!

Hey there..
I'm back to my craft table after a long vacation๐Ÿ˜Š My son had Spring break so we planned our holidays and explored Florida. It was a great time n we all enjoyed a lot...๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š 
When I backed from my vacation I had to attend a house warming party. So made this card in super quick just 5 minutes... ;-) 
Here is my card..

Used my favorite The Ton- 'Wild Peonies' stamp set and stamped with Distress inks. For leaves used Memento inks. 
Sentiment is from Altenew. 
As I was in hurry so I repeated my own design in this card. You can see my previous creation HERE.

Hope you like the card as my friend liked it๐Ÿ˜Š

That's it for today..
Happy crafting!
