Celebrate Fall Season!

Hey everyone, 

This is my first Winnie & Walter card for the month of September. Hope your are starting to enjoy the cooler weather in your place and the start of fall. I am heading to spring down under. I cannot wait for warmer weather. It was a very cold and wet winter. Not much sunshine at all. I am over it and cannot wait for warm weather glorious sunshine 🙂

I have a fall card to share with you today. I love this card for its gorgeous rich fall colours. Here is the card.

I started with sponging distress oxide inks in Aged Mahogany, Ripe Persimmon, Gathered Twigs, Fossilized Amber and Mowed Lawn on a white panel. I sponged the Fossilized Amber in the centre and the rest of the colours randomly around it.

Then I stamped the leaves from In Bloom Renee’s Leaves stamp set on the edges of the panel using black ink. I used Simon’s intense black ink as it is good with watercolouring. I also stamped a few nut images to fill in gaps.  I kept the centre of the panel clear of any stamping. I will used it for the sentiment.

Then using a brush and clean water, I coloured the stamped leaves and nuts with water. The property of distress oxide inks are they go chalky with water. The colours fade to a whitish chalky finish. This makes the images significantly lighter than the background. I love the effect. To make the leaves and nuts pop, I added drop shadow using comic cool grey markers C3 and C1.

Using the white gelly roll pen, I added highlights to the images. Then I spattered some white, gold and black paint spatters all over the panel. I left the panel to dry while I worked on my sentiment.

The sentiment is made up of both die cuts as well as white heat embossed stamped sentiment. The die cut “FALL” sentiment is from Typecast: Cary Cutaway. I die cut the word “FALL” three times, stacked and glued the alphabet for dimension. Then I brushed it with clear shimmer and added highlights using white get pen. The secondary white heat embossed sentiments are from The Big,the Bold and Seasons stamp set. The strips of the secondary sentiment is adhered above and below the “FALL” die cut sentiment using foam adhesive. Finally a few sequins in the same colours as the background to finish the panel. I glued the panel to the card base using liquid glue.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below. Hope you liked my card for today and got inspired.

Wishing You a Bright and Happy Day!

Hello friends, Welcome back to my blog. Today I have a card using Mudra stamps. If you are aware of Mudra Craft Stamps. It is an indian stamp company for which I am a design team member. This stamp set is a new release called Hello Sunshine!

I love the cute image on the stamp set that I decided to colour the image using my Prisma Colour Pencils on toned gray paper.

I will tell you! It gives great pleasure to colour using the colour pencils. Something about it makes me relax and enjoy the process. Although, after sometimes my eye begins to water and goes out of focus, I still come back after washing my eyes and little break. I really love how this one turned out.

I then trimmed the toned gray paper to 4″x5.25″ in size and adhered on a scrap piece of white cardstock smaller than the toned gray paper for stability. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set using black ink and adhered the panel to a white card base. Finally added some white Nuvo crystal drops to finish off the card.

I love the texture the colour pencils give. Since I wanted the coloured image as the highlight of the card, I decided to keep the card simple. All supplies used to make this card are listed below.

You are so Beautiful!

Hello everyone!

Hope you had a lovely weekend! Mine was as usual. Getting household chores done. Yesterday, the sun decided to show up after a long time. So plenty of washings done. But more so I got a few cards done too.

Today, I am sharing a Simon Says Stamp card using the new STAMPtember Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set. I combined this new set with the previous Beautiful Flowers stamp set to make this card.

I used the large cluster of flowers and leaves from Beautiful Flowers stamp set and stamped on the edges of the panel on the long side.Then masked a few leaves and stamped the single flower and leaves on the edge of shorter side of the panel. Now the panel is beautifully framed with the flowers and leaves.

To colour the images, I used copic markers as the base colour. I picked rich fall colour tones to colour a solid base layer. Then I came in with Faber Castell Polychromos colour pencils to add shading and depth to the images. I used white pencil to highlight areas and darker shade of the colour to add shading, then coming in with the lighter shade of the same colour to blend them all together. Again I added a few layers of colours. This colouring took me about an hour. I came back with copic grey marker to add shadows around the images.

Using Sakura white gelly roll pen, I added more highlights to the coloured images. Then with Sakura black glaze pen, I added some dot details around the stamped images. I seriously love the colours on the card.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Flowers stamp set in the middle of the panel using Simon’s intense black ink. Then I coloured the large sentiment with the same colours I used for the images and the exact same process. Copic markers as base layer, then came in with polychromos colour pencils for shading and depth. I added shadow using the grey copic marker pen.

I adhered the panel on to a maroon card base using glue. Finally added some white nuvo crystal drops to finish the card.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below. Hope you like my card and got inspired.

Have a wonderful day!
