Ramadan 2018: Card Tutorial


 
With Ramadan only 23/24 days, I decided to make some fun vibrant, Ramadan Kareem cards for loved ones. I captured the entire process on video, to share with everyone, so that you too feel inspired to make some of your own.



In this video tutorial I have used stamps from Altenew, Kaisercraft and Prima Marketing Inc. Instead of using distress inks, I opted to use pigment inks, by Color Box, and black Archival Ink.


Have a wonderful day!

You are Incredible


This card is inspired by all the incredible people, those precious gems, who make life beautiful. 

The front panel is actually a bookmark design, which I water colored some time back.



As you can see in the above picture, its actually a pretty long panel, and so I used half of it for this card. I created the base layer by stamping the edges to create the border, and the then stamped the sentiment on Kraft card.


Added some glossy accents to add dimension to the design.


And thats all folks!

Scrapbook: To My Soulmate


"To My Soulmate" is a customized album, made in shades on grey and blue. Since this scrapbook was a to be gifted to a gentleman, I avoided using any flowers and ribbons. Used lots of diecuts on the cover, and heat embossed some details.


The scrapbook contains over 20 mats, and lots of space for journal-ling.


Kept the box grey, with lots of texture and fun elements.


Added frames, cogs and gears, hidden tags, pockets, and booklets all through the album.







And, thats all folks!
Have a great day,
Happy Crafting

15 Days into The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge



The Daily Marker 30 Day coloring challenge, hosted by Kathy, is all about taking your coloring skills one step further. It is open to all those who enjoy coloring, and sharing, their passion with others. You can read all about the challenge on The Daily Marker site. I too am participating in it this year, and that is why I have been posting coloring projects on my instagram account daily.   

Why am I taking part? It was during the 2015 challenge that Erum Tasneem's beautiful coloring posts inspired me to start coloring once again. I started coloring random images, and then as I got busy with other projects, coloring got sidelined. So, this year I decided that I would take this on seriously and stick through it, making sure that I color every single day of the month. I love to color, and I saw this as a great opportunity to polish my coloring skills.  There are thousands of people, across the globe participating, tons of inspiration and lots to learn; I couldn't just let this go this time.


The past 15 days have been extremely rewarding and I can actually see a massive improvement in my work (even if I say so myself :P ).  Sharing a slideshow of the 15 images that I colored, using water color pencils. These are shared on my instagram account too.




You can join in too, if you like; just color, capture and share on facebook or instagram using #thedailymarker30day hashtag. Visit The Daily Marker for more details.
To stay posted on what I am working on, join me on Instagram. 

Have a great day!

Alter / Upcycle Wooden Frame : Inspire

Altered mixed media , Trellis layered stencil , Timholtz
A wooden picture frame had been lying around, all lonely and sad for the past few years. I finally decided to give it a new life, by applying some mixed media techniques to alter / upcycle it.

I used gesso, texture paste, some charms, chipboard diecuts, and lots of ink. Yup, I did capture the process on camera. Embedding the youtube video below:



 And here a close up of the quilled "Inspire".

 Happy Crafting!
