Music Lover - Redone

Music lover redone
Looks familiar ?? Yes you have seen it earlier :)
 I have redone the card that I made for Lulupu GD post.(Original post) I felt the bg was too busy and was taking the focus away from headphone n words.

Music lover Original

So I carefully removed the watercolored panel from base and used its backside (no waste). As I had used very less foam tape It was minorly damaged.I could easily cover it with washi tapes.Gently removed the headphone image and the alphabet stickers strips.

Then painted circles of varying sizes with light blue water color,drew a mobile with black marker and adhered the fussy cut head phones over it.The stickers looked lighter n needed something dark to lift them up ,So I used red card-stock to mat them.Glued the larger alphabets directly on the panel.Scribbled some music types on tissue paper and made a washi tape out of it (tutorial here) and adhered it around the headphone.

Now the card looks more CAS WHat do you think ? Which one is better ?

Chalkboard Style Birthday Card

Card Front
 Hello crafty friends n bloggers I am back with a card again :) no surprise !

Side View
I know chalkboard style was a trend long back ! I had loved it and recent challenges made me try it finally .
Rather than heat embossing or stamping with white ink.I used even more easy way..paining/drawing with white acrylic color using a thin painting brush :) Did need  bit of practice .. I was happy to use up all the black paper scraps from my stash.

Side view
For the background I used a stencil n watercolor on watercolor paper.I combined two techniques from Online Card class(Ok I messed first one ) for the effect.Adhered the watercolored panel on handmade cardbase and sentiment panel over it with foam tape.

Top view
Embellished with handmade cabbage roses ,ribbons and natural feathers.

 Hello Friends!  I am very happy to share my contribution as GD for Lulupu’s Current challenge .Thanks to Karuna and Lulupu Team for this honor. Jaya has challenges us to create anything as long as it has minimum 3 Washi tape along with a Geometric shape/Ready-made embellishment. I have had washi tapes that Yvonne has sent me since long and never used it properly and had it not been for this challenge I they still won’t have seen light of the day! Thanks for this interesting theme Jaya :)

I made this card with a “music lover” in mind . I am hooked to drawing n fussy cutting images for cards these days So, started with drawing the headphone and fussy cut it keeping mobile/iPod shaped window in center, decorated it with hounds tooth washi tape. For the background I used water color paper and painted circles freehand with water colors and outlined with blue gel pen, drew the phone/iPod and outlined with black gel pen, stamped music notes in light blue memento ink and used music notes washi tape to go with the theme. Popped the earphone with foam tape on water colored panel and adhered the panel on handmade card base with foam Tape. I used alphabet stickers for words and matted them on washi tape Strips.
