Spring themed tile card

 There is a neem tree outside my room's window and my day starts with a pleasant view of neem tree with the backdrop of clear blue sky and background music of chirping birds. Spring is here ..and my card is totally based on it.Green color of  neem leaves clear blue sky and birds and Its a Flip card .

This is how it opens .
 Inside view

Water color paper is used for this card and birds are hand drawn and painted with water colors .If your are guessing which are these birds..they are imaginary .he..he...Now to the brick tile technique ..It is based on tutorial at Technique Time Tuesday .Drawing and coloring was the quickest part of this card .While cutting and gluing the bricks(tiles)was the trickiest part .Just misplace one piece and you are left with a custom made puzzle ! 

Sentiment from net and printed .Have you noticed the card has just colored jute twine as embellishment and nothing else !! Take a look at this short video to see the card flipping ! Do tell me if you like it  ...(Sorry for the shaky video I had to shoot with one hand so..)

Silhouette Quilling

I had seen such quilling  on many blogs , recent ones being kalanirtmitte ,Sathya's spring card and loved it a lot .I never thought I could do it but I am glad at-least I tried.Once you start you get ideas to improve and know from the mistakes what to avoid.When I saw a sketch in news paper thought of giving it a try( as it had very few lines and simple shapes) .So,Drew the sketch on a rough paper and started to glue the strips .(Was not sure if it will be good so didn't bother about paper ! )

It turned out better so did not feel like discarding it ...So cut it and glued it to a reused tag .It looked boring without colors so did some spray painting on it ! Its looking more like a Holi ( festival of colors ) tag now : D :D !

Blue and brown card

Lots of reusing involved in this card.Once again I have used shirt packaging/filler as card base and used old news paper as pattern paper.Coated the base paper with mixture of blue color , some white glue and chalk power for some texture.I haven't colored the brown one, It was  colored originally  (some efforts saved !).

A decorative button from old dress and a handmade flower are used as for embellishment .The sentiment is hand written .Tell me what you think of my effort for this card with lots of reusing !

Card with Bargello Technique

As the title suggests I have used bargello technique for this card.My stash is low on card-stock so I  used the shirt packaging/filler as card-stock. Covered it with purple chart-paper and then used some tissue to give it texture.But still the the base didn't look good.So, finally glued a textured white paper (recycled from old invite).

This is how I made the chevron strips .I  have cut strips of 5mm from colored chart paper for it.The sentiment is printout and( though it does not look like )made a husked butterfly .I have also used some plastic beads n a cloth trim as embellishment .Do tell me if you like card .
