Canvas Corp Crew Challenge : Valentine Cards!


Today is a very very happy day as I share my first post as part of the Canvas Corp Design Crew! Canvas Corp Brands are so exciting and I am so looking forward to create an entire year with them :)

The challenge today is to create a Valentine Card and send it off to someone who isn't expecting it. Since I am giving it to someone who reads my blog, I am not gonna disclose it here :P

Onto my card, I created a mixed media style card with some amazing Tattered Angels mists and Canvas Corp Papers.

Yeah, I went crazy with those awesome mists :D

I love how it is full of texture and of course colour !

And I added a little handwritten sentiment as well :)

Here are the supplies I used to make this card,

Canvas Corp Card and Envelope 9"X4"
Canvas Corp Pattern Paper - Paris Hearts of Ivory
Tattered Angels Mists - Suede
Tattered Angels Mists - Bahama Blue
Tattered Angels Mists - Vintage Pink
Tattered Angels Mists - Cross My Heart
Tattered Angels High Impact Paint - White
Acrylic Paint - Permanent Rose
Sakura Model Paste
Faber Castell Brush
Faber Castell Multi Marker Black
Canvas Corp Twine
Charcoal Pencil

And here's how did it step by step 

Cut the pattern paper to size. Using an old credit card apply modelling paste randomly on the pattern paper to add some texture. Let dry.

Once the texture paste is dry, spray on your favorite mists. It's ton of fun :)
Let dry.

Spray some more with a contrasting color to add more interest. Let dry.

Use High Impact Paint in white and the back of the brush to add some dots. Let dry.

Paint a free-style heart with thick acrylic paint. Don't dilute the paint and it will add to the texture. Let dry.

Add highlights to the heart and the edges of the paper using the marker and charcoal pencil. Smudge the marks along the way to soften them.

And then use a sticker, button and some twine to embellish. Use foam adhesive to adhere the pattern paper to the Canvas Corp Card base.

See easy peasy and awesome :)

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching

Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

It made me fell so ble…
