Hey Guys! I'm back again!So currently I'm watching the India vs West Indies T20 Semi Final and writing this post as I am free only now.I love Cricket and today's match is gonna be a cracker one!May the best team win(Even though I want India to win :p)Anyways back to my post,so today I'm sharing a card with a tutorial which I've created for Lulupu's 4th Birthday Bash Challenge.I know that I'm very late,but I was so busy with work,studies as I'm preparing for my entrances.I'm really sorry for the poor picture quality as most of the pics are clicked in the evening so hence the poor light quality.
So now onto the tutorial,
Step 1:
So first,I chose a thick paper from my old notebook and cut a piece from it.

Step 2:
Next I applied some Camlin Texture White in some areas with an old toothbrush.

Step 3:

Next I used some Camlin acrylic colours in the shades silver,titanium white,permanent rose,medium magenta and brilliant purple along with some distress ink in the shade worn lipstick.I mixed and matched the colours along with some texture white to get the desired background as shown above.
Step 4:
I stuck a piece of patterned paper and this mesh which I up cycled from an old flower bouquet.You get these in the big flower bouquets and I always collect them.

Step 5:
I made these handmade flowers from online tutorials,punched out a few flowers from my flower punches and fussy cut some leaves.

Step 6:

So finally,I added the flowers,leaves along with a handwritten sentiment,some silver buttons and I used this glitter glue in purple and red to add some more details.
                                                           Here's a closer look at the card!

                                                I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Hey Guys!
Firstly,A Happy Easter to everyone! I know I am a bit late but this whole week is celebrated as Easter week.So finally I'm back after 2 years.Yes i know it was a long gap as after my 10th boards I got busy with college/studies/commitments etc.But I decided that once my 12th std boards get over I will venture into blogging/crafting even more!So I got done with my boards last week and ever since then I've been organising,cleaning and arranging my stuff neatly into place.I know I do not have most of the crafting essentials as my parents think that they are overpriced etc.But I finally convinced my dad to buy a few items and I will do so next week.So now I made a really simple card.
So for this card,I drew a half mandala.A mandala is a type of doodling and it is very intricate and delicate.It requires alot of patience.So after sketching it,I coloured it with sketch pens in different colours and stuck a piece of punched white paper over t and wrote a sentiment "Happy Easter" to complete it.
I would like to enter thus card for the following challenges:
Thank you so much for going through my post!I'll be back very soon.Happy Crafting x
