New Year CAS Card 3

This is my third and final new year CAS Card. I came across this quote on net and decided to use it for Card.I have used water color paper as card base.

I drew the image taking reference from net ,as I haven't seen a cocoon with butterfly in real.Colored it with water color pencils and used black marker for detailing.

I wanted some witty sentiment ..made this one up..I hope you are not tired of my CAS cards as I have one more to share :) !!

New Year CAS card

Front View
Today I have a CAS card to share with you all.Usually I create a card and then add a suitable sentiment at last but this time I selected a sentiment first and built the card design around it.This card is totally inspired by Sanketi's card making Style.She creates Awesome cards by combining stamping and water coloring .Each time I visit her blog I am amazed by the way she creates scenes with different stamps and brings it to life with her coloring , paired with perfect sentiments .

side view
I have used water color paper as base for this card.Images are hand drawn and I have used water color pencils to color them.Sentiment hand written ( which is not difficult to guess ;) ).Tell me how did you like CAS effort of mine .

Card with Bargelo Technique

Card front
I am happy that finally I have something to share on my blog which has been neglected a lot this month .I love to play along Technique Time Tuesday Challenges but could not for last few challenges  and this was perfect month to catch up as this month we have to choose from any past techniques.

Side view
I choose Bargello technique  Mynnette has shared a detailed tutorial here.I have made a card with this technique earlier with some variation.This time followed the tutorial as it is.
Other side view
 I had planned to use the bargello pattern as base layer and then load it with embellishments,but as I finished gluing the strips ,I loved its look and decided to keep it as main focus of card.

Supplies :
 Sentiment stamp and Memento Dew Drop Dye Inkpad-Tuxedo Black from Bits n Pieces

Mixed Media Card

Mixed Media Card
Sharing a mixed media card today . Made a texture paste using chalk powder(used for denting & painting) and white glue.Dabbed a thin layer of the paste with fingers creating textures and while the paste was still wet drew the peacock feathers with toothpick on it.

Card lying flat
Painted it with green ,blue acrylic colors and some gold powder to highlight the feathers.finished off by adding two golden strips around the panel.

White ,Red & Green

How is this romantic tent ?? Before you wonder what is it..let me tell you its a big pop-up card (7x7) !!
          I  love pop-up cards and I am constantly searching for techniques n tutorials (Often ending up on same blogs ..any guess ??) and still you don't see many pop-up cards on my blog :(  As only making a pop-up is not enough, to make it look complete a scene is needed around it and I find it very difficult.I really admire how Dr.Sonia builds lovely scenes in her pop-up cards.And my next source of inspiration is Anna-Karin, her pop-up cards have fabulous scenes and bgs created by stamping ,texture paste n even acetate !!

Now to my card..

A top view

I made a hexagonal tent with a roof used guaze for curtains and a frilly lace to make it more romantic.Scored horizontal lines on roof for some texture.

side views..

Talking of scene I only added lamp posts around the tent.Used paper pieced roses from a pp and dried leaves for decoration.It has table n chairs in it too..not visible clearly ??.. no probs..

I took this snap before attaching the tent.

And this is the card front..(I know, not so impressive)I have used red satin ribbon and the big white panel has some texture with tissue and a lace,flowers n some paper pieced roses.

The large flowers are made using faux-silk technique.I have kept the die cut label blank as this card can be gifted on wedding as well as Anniversary so it can be added accordingly !
