Guest Designing at CUYL: It's All About Sequins

Hello again!
This is my second post today and it's another rainbow card for you.
I am guest designing over at Challenge Up Your Life for June/July and this is my second post as GD.
The theme this fortnight is

It's All About Sequins

I have inked up my background using distress inks, flicked some water droplets to add texture and then sprayed it with shimmer mist. The heat embossed sentiment is from Avery Elle.
Hope you liked it!

Guest Designing at Artful Crafting

Hello everyone!
I am guest designing over at Artful Crafting today. 
Artful Crafting is Pakistan's first ever online craft store (a dream come true really) and they recently launched the Artful Crafting Challenges.

This month the theme is

No Flowers

A bit about my card, I have used SSS die and stamp on a rainbow background which I created using various shades of distress inks.

For those who would like to know they are as follows: Festive berries, Barn Door, Fired Brick, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, Shaded Lilac and Picked Raspberry.
 Please know you don't need all these shades to create a rainbow background, I just wanted to complete the card quickly without wasting time in mixing colors to make a new one.

I have layered the largest butterfly and placed it a bit offset. Added a few black splatters to balance the bold, black sentiment.

There is a ton of shimmer on the card which you cant see here but is visible in person.

Until next time,

All Dressed Up: Anything Goes

Hello hello!!
It's time for a new challenge over at All Dressed Up. The theme as always is
"Anything Goes"
I made a mini photo album with a box for boy who is turning ONE!

The balloons and pennants are hand drawn.
Added some iridescent glitter on the pennants.
Sentiment by W&W.

My shaker photo album for the little kid!

The image is called "Daddy's Little Helper"
I have colored him with Faber Castell pencils.
Wrote the "Turns One" myself and added some shadows to it.
Applied glossy accents to the alphas "Zayyan"  and to the hand cut pennants.
The Polaroid frame is made out of glitter foam sheet.

Kept the inside quite plain except for a bit of stamping on every page and attached a punched border on the edge with aa pop of green strip.
The last page is a pocket page with four tags to write on.
Hope you liked it! Do leave a bit of love if you did.
hugs and love!
