Vintage with faux -silk Technique

Hello Friends !! How are you all ? My blog has been quiet for a while as I am not crafting much this month.I have a card to share today.

I have stained the tissue with coffee concoction ,crumpled the tissue and glued it to card base to achieve the faux-silk look.For the three panels I wrote some script on coffee stained tissue and then used them.Added a layer of corrugated cardboard piece stained with coffee.

I drew the bird very gently on tissue and colored lightly with water color pencils and then glued it on a base .After the glue was completely dry I colored it again( shading n detailing ) and paper pieced it.

Similarly for the tree trunk n leaves I colored the tissue first glued it to base n the cut the shape.Almost everything on this card except for corrugated piece is faux-silk.I am not much fond of brown and so find it difficult to work with this color. Do tell me if you like my attempt !

Whats reused here ?
I have used paper from invite(plane side)from my stash as base for panels ,bird ,tree trunk n leaves.The cream colored paper is also from invite and the corrugated piece is striped off from packaging.

Diwali Bloghop 2013

Hello friends !! Welcome to Diwali Bloghop organized by Chaitali , We  will be sharing Diwali themed projects with you to make your diwali even more exciting  ! I am very happy to be part o this blog hop, all thanks to Chaitali ! I have a paper lantern to share,which I have made for this Diwali.

This one is my second attempt.Taking inspiration from here I made a carousel shaped paper lantern(cylindrical)  complete with roof n danglers and  as I was about to tie it,it looked as if someone had kicked it  :( !! No matter how much support I gave for stiffness..it went from bad to worst !!

To be on safer side I made a rectangular carousel(I know rather unusual !!).Instead of using just chart paper n kite paper I also used packing cardboard so now the base structure (similar to a box with windows) is very sturdy . I have hand drawn the horses and did the cutting,all sides are similar. .here is how it looks in daylight .

Its a Diwali bolg hop so how can it be without gifts??
