Background Stamped Flower Card

Image
Hey everyone!
For today's card, I thought I'll do something different. I wanted to make a PP type of a background so I grabbed my Mandala stamp set by Peek-a-boo designs and used the flower mandala stamp on the entire background. For colouring them, I went with my old watercolour pencils over all the flowers. Added black glitter to the edges. Then I used my alphabet stamp set to stamp out the words 'Happy Birthday', stamped and cut three more mandala flowers and glued it in the middle to complete the card. Here are a few pictures.

A New Beginning

Hey! Feels really weird to have finally come back to blogging after almost 3 years. The biggest reason for leaving blogging was my academics, I got held up with it and couldn't make time to post.I tried many times to get back but just didn't. Finally this year, I decided that it's time to get back to doing the thing that I love the most - art.Over the last three years, I have had many crazy experiences which threw me out of my comfort zone. I realised that I was blessed with the basic amenities of life, a loving family and great friends while there are so many people out there who don't have any of them. I also  realised that my skills, capabilities and passion are so well defined that I need to make the best use out of them. What better way than through this blog? With that thought in mind, I decided to change the concept of my blog completely.Let's start with the basics.Who am I?My name is Sidelle Menon and I'm 20 years old.What is the blog going to be about?A…

Peony Scrolls Card #1

Image
Hey Guys!I've been crafting a lot these days and I really like it! So for today's card, I used the beautiful peony scroll stamps from Altnew. They are my first set of Altnew stamps that I picked up from Crafters Corner a while ago and I'm going to get the most use out of them. So I made 2 A-6 cards with envelopes. I used 2 different patterned papers from my stash and cut them to 4*6 inches. After adhering them to the base, I added a few distress ink splatters of fossilised amber and abandoned coral. I stamped the stamps multiple times on a piece of scrap, coloured in with my acrylic colours and finally fussy cut them. This took nearly 3 hours to colour and cut but it was worth the effort. I adhered them to the background, added a hand written sentiment and a few sequins. Here are a few closeups.

Recycled Tag No.2

Image
Hey Guys!
So I'm back and today's post is a part of the recycling card series and I'm sharing a mini tutorial. So for today, I've used just one card to make the tags. Hope you enjoy the tutorial!

Step 1- Cut out four tags from the card base.

Step 2- Prep your base. Since I didn't have gesso, I used my modelling paste in a few places and also used a stencil with it.  Step 3- I added color to the tags. I wanted to create two different color tags. So I added colors and DI's to highlight the texture formed by the stencil. Step 4- Next I used a few scraps of paper and colored them with DI's mermaid lagoon and cracked pistachio. Once they got dried, I stamped different background stamps to give different patterns. Once they were done, I rolled them up into rolls.
Step 5-  Cut and stick the rolls in the shape of a tree. The last step is to EMBELLISH! So i went a little crazy here. I added sequins, a quilled pot, star on the top and drew snowflakes with my 3D outliners. …

So for today's card, I used scraps of paper to make my christmas tree, adhered it to a tag made out of scrap cardboard, tied a few pieces of ribbon, adhered that to a card base and finally added a handwritten sentiment.
