#592 – Modern Art Marbling

PE: Gossip Queen at Taheerah’s Gossip Column challenge!! Yay!! πŸ˜€

At least, that is how this one looks like to me! πŸ˜‰

Modern Art Marbling - Hello

The only time consuming thing in this card is drawing all those separating lines. I had to draw them using a pencil first, then color and then retrace the lines. But if you are confidant enough to draw them using a pen the first time, it becomes even faster.

Modern Art Marbling - Hello

And here’s my inspiration picture, also from Taheerah’s Gossip Column post –

In retrospect, I can clearly see that the lines in my card are a bit harsher. A bit more fluid would have looked a lot better. Like my sister said, they look like lightening bolts.. albeit colorful. Its like the card is threatening with a hello rather than greeting a hello!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Lesson learnt! πŸ˜‰

Products used: Winnie & Walter In a Word: Hello cutaway, Zig brush pens, Uniball Signo black gel pen. And transparent sequins.

#591 – Marbling Using Zig Brush Pens

Hello! Playing along with The Gossip Column with Taheerah Atchia | No.6 – Marble, is really making me try some new stuff.

d2974-the-gossip-column-lssue-6

I spent the whole of yesterday, trying to get a marbled effect using just watercolors. Any type of watercolors, but watercoloring in essential. I wanted to try something other than those nail polishes, shaving cream or even alcohol ink marbling techniques..I was craving for some technique that would use watercolors, since they are my absolute favorite media. And by the end of the day, I had used quite a few watercolor panels, most of them, completely not looking marbled… but some of them did look marbled (yay!) And here’s one card made out of one of those that did –

Great Day

This is the inspiration image from Taheerah’s challenge. I know, it doesn’t look much like the image, but… I tried! πŸ˜€ And I am happy enough to try the technique again.. so there!! πŸ˜‰

I used Zig Brush pens to create the marbled paper. The flowers are from Winnie & Walter In Bloom: Lola’s Bouquet stamp set. I made a colored and misted background for the purple flower, and colored the other flower the usual way – all using the Zig Brush pens. The leaves are from Marianne Designs Daisy and Leaves die. The sentiment is a mix from The Big, The Bold and Party and The Big, The Bold and Extras.

Great Day

Once I brought all the pieces together, I added some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle on the flowers, black glitter stickles on the purple flower, Nuvo Crystal Drops Bright Gold on the other one. I also added a bit of the Spectrum Noir sparkle (none of these sparkles are visible in these images!! 😦 ) I added drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops Silver Lining and Fevicryl Glitter Gold for embellishing.

#590 – Off The Page

PE: Featured as a favorite in Color Throwdown 431!

Hello! I am posting another card for theΒ Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations. My main source of inspiration is Keren’s Off the Page Challenge. I never made a card with anything hanging off, thinking I’d never be able to mail it anyway. But I decided to at least give it a try this time – I was sure I would love it…and I did!! πŸ™‚

Hello

To make this card, I used one of the flower images from the In Bloom: Addie’s Garden stamp set, which has always given me a hard time with ideas; but seemed just perfect this time. I stamped the images on a scrap cardstock panel using MISTI, then used ink smooshing technique with distress inks. I then fussy cut out the images.

Hello

For the sentiment, I used partial die-cutting using the Hello die. I then ink blended the background using distress inks and Scenery – Madison Creative Screenings stencil. I then adhered the flowers and then some small silver sequins for embellishing.

Submitting this card goes to the following challenges from the Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations – Ink Smooshing with Heather H, Sequins Challenge with Kate, Stencil Challenge with Kelly, Off the Page Challenge with Keren, Ink Blending Challenge with Vanessa

#589 – A Precious Shaker Card

Hello! Continuing withΒ Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations, I made a few more cards this weekend. I’ll post them one by one. The first one is shaker card, made using Winnie & Walter My Precious and Scenery: Stripes stamp sets.

You Are Precious To Me

I used MISTI to stamp the gems on a card panel. The first time I am using MISTI for this purpose – I usually just eyeball and stamp.. and I have only used MISTI when I need to stamp the image twice.. or some special cases.. So anyway, easy to see how pretty it came out. Once done, I stamped the stripes and then the sentiment on another panel using MISTI too. I then adhered these together to make the shaker, finally adhering it to the card base.

You Are Precious To Me

This card goes to the following challenges from the Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations –

#588 – Seize the Birthday – Inlay Diecuts

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Seize The Birthday! The topping this time is to use Inlay Die Cuts. But if you don’t prefer that, you can choose to go without the topping, and just make a Birthday card. Choice is yours! πŸ™‚

Seize The Birthday - The Toppings

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

Joining us once again is our Suprise Party Guest Rahmat!

And here’s my inspiration card –

Happy Birthday

I made a very simple card for your inspiration. I first die cut the sentiment, took it out, then the flowers, one by one. I then watercolored them all, and placed them back together.

Happy Birthday

To finish my card, I placed the panel on the card base with a strip of striped washi tape on the side. I also added Nuvo Glossy drops in Buttercup for embellishing.

Stop over the Seize the Birthday blog and checkout more amazing inspiration from the rest of the DT and from Rahmat! And don’t forget to play along!

#587 – Love & Adore You

Hello! I loved making the card last time, with flowers, made from vellum pieces stacked above each other; and thought of making another using the same idea. I also tried making it vintage, but this one ended up looking vintage-ish..hmm… but I really do love how it has turned out! πŸ˜€

Love & Adore You

I first heat embossed the heart and flowers with gold embossing powder on vellum, which I then colored using Zig brush markers. I colored the flowers underneath the vellum last time, this time, I added it on the top – any case, you’ll have to wait for it to dry anyway! πŸ˜‰ I then fussy cut them out. The sentiment, I cut from a cardstock, which I had painted with gold acrylic paint – it looks beautiful with the gold embossing – not too overpowering, but still shiny enough to stand out! πŸ™‚ I am glad I used it too! Well, I also did stack it with a few layers before adding it to the card. Assembly was mostly easy, once I knew where to place what!

Here’s the supply list:
Neat & Tangled Heart of Gold stamp
Simon Says Stamp Sketch Ranunculus stamp
My Favorite Things Love & Adore You die
My Favorite Things Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle die
DCWV Fresh Floral Stack pattern paper
