Watercolored Irises

Back to florals ! he he can’t stay away from them, thankfully not Magnolias again ! Most of you must have seen them on Instagram!!Yes finally I have an Instagram account (sdpooja).

The Enchanted Iris Stamp set (Altenew) is latest addition to my floral stamp stash. The card design is simple keeping all focus on watercoloring .The sentiment is combination of charmed set (Altenew) and Sentimental Birthday set (Winnie & Walter).I have used watercolor pencils and brush pens for coloring.

Would love to know how you like the irises. Thanks for dropping by.

No stamp card!

Yup absolutely no stamping at all!
What to do, when you are deep engrossed in water-coloring flowers and suddenly you are requested a birthday card for a teenager. No flowers no butterflies! Go for searching stamps in your stash                                                               
Flowers  …flowers some more flowers..(he he they make majority of my stash
Cute critters too cute for a teen! 
Geometrics…will work but..                                                 
Okay I give up! Why depend on stamps when the easiest way is to draw it?

Kids and teens are very much interested in robots.If I could make it interactive , good idea !!
If you are wondering what's with robot and the words check this out !

 It has grown taller !! A simple slider , I have attached arms using thread, so that when the body moves they swing like that of a puppet.(Only one worked on this card though !)Check the video to see the card in action.

How do you like it ?

Happy New year

Happy New Year my Creative friends and Blog Readers!! I am so glad to be sharing on first day of New year!! I hope this year proves to be super creative for all of us.

I tried something new  ”Pencil Colouring ”!! Yes finally I got a set of Prismacolor pencil and couldn’t wait to try them out. I was very happy and satisfied using watercolors but couldn’t use them on dark colored cardstock and so wanted color pencils. What better than floral stamps to start with? Magnolias…the fever continues ;)( You must be wondering doesn’t she have any other floral stamps!! I do but they have to wait)

I kept the card design simple and one layered. Heat embossed the beautiful from charmed set (Altenew) and wishing you (which is hardly visible) is from Sentimental : Birthday (W&W)This lovely gray textured cardstock was gifted by Ashwini and I have been hoarding it just for pencil colouring! I know I have a long way to go before I get realistic effects with pencils. How do you like my attempt?

Floral Birthday Card

Hello Friends! Sharing a floral birthday card today, probably the last card for this year!

I started by heat embossing a geometric pattern on a patterned paper (femina from papericious) using stencil (Parquet from Neat & Tangled).Then I gold heat embossed the sentiment on vellum(Big greetings from SSS)

Next comes the embellishing with handmade roses, pieces of chipboard(criss-cross from Papericious),pollens and leaves and pearls.
I also made a matching box to hold the card.

I would like to thank you for supporting my blog and for the encouraging comments throughout this year .I hope my blog sees some more action next year. Wishing you happy holidays !!
