Sending lots of Happy Thoughts your way! + Q&A (Edited)

Edited: I completely forgot its Friday and day for out regular Q&A feature. Looks like I really am soaked up in work :D Added the Q&A at the end of the post :)

** I have a BIG Giveaway HERE

I will make this post a quickie because I have lots of pending tasks in my To Do list and I also wanna try to make Walnut Banana Muffins. I hope I get them right the first time :)

Today's card is based on the sketch at Lily pad cards Sketch Challenge, using my all time favorite technique of emboss resist which is again for the Lily Pad Cards Resist Challenge. I picked the colors from current Hero Arts Challenge and also attempted a window card :) And since it has no pattern papers, I am entering this to Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#68

 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Hero Arts(Speckled Ornaments, Live life), WPlus9(Magical moments); ink: Rangers Distress Ink(Walnut Stain, Barn Door, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed), Versamark Embossing ink; Rangers Clear Embossing Powder

If you have any questions, please let me know and I will make sure I answer them all.


Q1 How did u sprinkle that color?Is it water color on THIS card?                Bhavana
A1 I use acrylic paint, little diluted with water. Then I just drop some of this diluted acrylic paint using my brush where ever needed. You can also use mists with a paint brush for the same effect.

Q2 Did you ink the rose with yellow pigment ink on THIS card?                       Snehal
A2 No, I didn't. I had these two tone flowers as is it. But you can always add color to white flowers using mists or pigment inks.

Q3 Can you tell me how to video?                                  Anita
A3 Did I tell you I am just learning? I am really bad at videos and more than making them, I actually hate editing them. I just use my web camera to shoot the video and then edit it using Windows Movie Maker. Nothing special :)

Q4 How to make the flower in THIS card?                          Snehal

A4 Its a simple gathered flowers with two layers. You can do it in minutes :) I will do a tutorial as soon as I get time.

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!
