Card for a little girl (and colouring step photos )

Hello friends, I am sharing first card of 2020 !
Decorated the front with hand drawn splatters and an Adorable digital stamp (You color my World from Whiff of Joy).

The card opens to show the cute girl enjoying  her colouring session with her best buddy.

One of my craft resolutions this year is to use neglected supplies more and sticking to it I have shown some love to Faber Castle Connector pens. Did no-line watercolouring using them.
Would you like like to see how I colored this image ? ( No Options 😉) I am sharing step by step photos.

(As you must have guessed the photos were taken at different times of a day so the difference in lighting.)
And here is a short video to see the card in action.

Thanks for stopping by , have a Great day ahead.

Blooming Irises

I started this year with Altenew Irises and ending it with same .

I went for my favorite no-line colouring with Camlin watercolor pencils and later added shadows with brush pens.

I spent so much time colouring the irises that I didn't have any time left for card design. Used a scored and stamped cardbase from my stash to cover up!

Wishing you a very Happy New Year ! I hope this new year all the supplies lying unused in our crafty stash get to see light of the day and we all make most out of our supplies . Happy Crafting in 2020 !

On this Special Day

 Wishing you all a very "Merry Christmas".
I am sharing  a floral card (no surprise !) in traditional Christmas colors.

The layout/design has been repeated many times the only difference is medium of coloring.I have used crayons to the color this modern tulip ,a digital stamp from Graciellie Design.(I have used this technique two years back on this card.)

If you are wondering how i achived smooth blending then the answer is iron ! Yup I placed a tissue over the colored image and ran a hot iron over it and I did this for each layer of crayons! Heat melts the wax which is absorbed by the tissue and you can add more color on top of it.
Hope you will give it a try !

Donut worry !

How do you like this tray of donuts ?

This sweet stamp set(Lawn fawn) was gifted to me by Juhi Khana years ago !! Finally managed to put it to use.I had fun colouring those donuts , it didn't take much time too.

I recently got this stamp set from Gina K designs which has Wonderful birthday sentiments.Best for stamping inside the card.

 I Went for the shortest one on this card.

I kept the card CAS..does it look empty ?
