Incredible - Altenew

Hi Peeps!


I am certain that most of us own "atleast" one Altenew Stamp, right eh?

Nevertheless, the card I created today is completely inspired by February 2017 Inspiration Challenge


Lovely combination of colors, aint they? I have chosen the colors and the flower theme for my card's inspiration below


In another angle,



Steps followed in Card Creation:
  • On a slighly smaller than A2 watercolor paper - I stamped beautiful flowers from  Altenew - Persian Motifs Stamp Set using Versamark Embossing Ink and heat embossed in white (super fine).Stamped the entire area of the card using masking technique.
  • Watercolored the motifs using different shades of distress Inks.
  • The sentiment is also from Altenew - Persian Motifs Stamp Set. Have heat embossed in white (super fine)
  • Watercolored the sentiment background and the motif background using distress ink
  • Adorned all of these onto white base CS, using double sided tape and Yayy! the card is ready!
Hope you peeps liked my card! Looking forward to hearing your lovely comments!

Heat embossing + Watercolors!


Hi Peeps!

Hope you are doing good!

Heat embossing is an awesome technique, aint it? And I am still in the initial stages of exploring it. And what best - that combining this with watercolors :)

An inspiration for doing so was obtained by Mudra Blog Challenge #5





An important thing to note is, this card is completely made using Mudra Stamps - from background to elements to Sentiments.

And here's my card!




In a different angle







Steps followed in Card Creation:
  • On a slighly smaller than A2 watercolor paper - I stamped elegant patterns from Mudra - Mendhika Stamp using Versamark Embossing Ink and heat embossed in white (super fine). It was not easy doing so on a watercolor paper though.Stamped the entire area of the card using masking technique.
  • watercolored the card base in different shades of distress inks. The lovely texture that shows up with combination of heat embossing and watercoloring indeed makes one happy!
  • Also Stamped pretty butterflies from Mudra - Beautiful Butterflies Stamp and heat embossed them in white and fussy cut them.
  • The sentiment stamped is from Mudra - Brushed Alpha. Have heat embossed in white (super fine) on vellum sheet.
  • Adorned all of these onto white base CS, using double sided tape to get a popped up look.
