I like the girl one more because the splatter worked perfectly on the background… I think I should not have been scared to add more paint splatters on the boy card!

That’s it for today!

Ciao.

I pencil shaded the mom and coloured the baby with classic Faber Castell’s colour pencils. I hope you will like it.
As always, leave a little love and I will stop by your blog.
Here is a little something extra, I voted for the first time in my life… Here’s a picture of my good ol’ inked thumb!

Hey everyone! First of, thank you for the comments! They mean the world to me! Today the card that I have to show is based on Cardabilities #74 sketch and inspired by encza. It’s an absolutely inky and heat embossed card.

I have used a LOT of stamps on this one to create the background… from what I can see they are HA, Inkadinkadoo, Prima. The flower (biggest one) is handmade, all the others are punched and treated with inks+embossing.
I have made a matching journal to go with this card which I will post soon Smile 
Have a super awesome day peeps and remember to leave a bit of love.
xoxo,

Sentimental Sundays: Paper Piecing

IMG_2977
Hello everyone! Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my last post, as promised I will be stopping by your blogs and leaving a lot of love!
Today I have a brand new card to show you and a new to me technique. It’s time for Sentimental Sundays challenge and this week the theme is Paper Piecing!
Our sponsor this week is Paper Shelter:
Here’s my card…
IMG_2974
Guess what I tried my hand at?? Colouring without lines!!! MAN! Is it difficult or is it DIFFICULT?! And that too with just regular colour pencils! It was a tough job but SO worth it!
My paper pieced elements are the mushroom heads. I tried to keep rest of the card simple so that all focus is drawn to the image. I hope you like my first attempt at colouring without lines!
Head on over to the Sentimental Sundays blog to check out what the design team has cooked up for you this week.
Leave a little love and I will stop by your blogs <3
xoxo

Mother…

IMG_28701

Hey there! Thank you for the birthday wishes, it was a fun party! We avoided the cake and had chocolate mousse and ice cream instead for dessert (as it’s hot here). I thought I’d share another Mother’s day card with you guys.

 

IMG_2870

I took the flower element from the inspiration card.

The fussy cut flower is part of the DCWV pattern paper, the blue background has been inked with distress inks, added some paint spatters , gems and pearls. That sentiment stamp is the only mother’s day stamp I have, I wanted to buy TT’s mom stamp set but it is always out of stock!

Leave a little love and I will stop by your blogs, this makes it so much easier to get back to you!

xoxo,

Hey buddies! It is SO HOT here, 40C (104 F) and I feel like I will either melt or blow up! LOL To top it off we have a party tonight as it’s my birthday WOOT! Hopefully we will have AC there.

I cut up strips of textured black cardstock to create a stripes background (which I love!), added a bit of punched border, the flower is handmade.

Oh the word “AMMI” is Urdu for MOM.

Stamps used SSS and HA. Die by Spellbinder.

See you tomorrow with another card, leave a bit of love and I will stop by your blog.

xoxo
