I added loads of crystals in the spaces that were empty.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Spider Mums & Craft Your Life Apron Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Spider Mums + Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello and welcome to
Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Spider Mums & Craft Your Life Apron Release.

You must be here from LauraJane's blog.



I have two cards to share with you. 

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Spider Mums + Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I did make a video for this, I will put it up on the Altenew YouTube tomorrow! I will mention all the details about the inks I used, and the markers in that post. (this will become active on 11/23 at 9:00 AM EST.0
The reason I created two very similar-looking cards is that the one on the right (see above) was what I had in mind or close to it and the one on the left is what I did after I messed up. 


Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Spider Mums + Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I started by ink blending on Crest Solar White Cardstock

I used Artist Markers to add colour to the flower and leaves.


I have been doing this a lot lately, stamping in dye inks, colouring with artist markers and then heat embossing. That is exactly what I did here. Then added splatters a lot of gold and black splatters. 
To finish, I adhered Satin Gold Sequins.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Spider Mums + Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Because I messed up the stamping the first time around, this is the card I saved.


Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Spider Mums + Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

You can find all about it in tomorrow's post.
I added fine splatters on the cream card front and stamped the sentiment brown ink.

To finish, I adhered Satin Gold Sequins.

Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

 

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Hawaiian Coral + Woodless Watercolour Pencils | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hi there!

You must be here from Emily Midgett's blog.


I used the Woodless Watercolour Pencils to colour my project today.


Altenew Build-A-Flower: Hawaiian Coral + Woodless Watercolour Pencils | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0


Next, I used Rubellite and Lavender Fields Woodless Watercolour Pencil to colour the flower.

For the leaves, I used Limeade and Shadow Creek Pencils.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Hawaiian Coral + Woodless Watercolour Pencils | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For my card front, I applied the pigment directly from Shadow Creek and Limeade pencils. 
I do think that the background should have been a tad darker at the extreme top.
Once this was dry, I added splatters of green and then black.

Then I adhered all the images with foam tape.

Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month - November

 

Hello there everyone!! 

The lovely people at Spellbinders sent me their first Clear Stamp of the Month to play with. 


On Pale Grey Cardstock, I stamped the image directly in black ink. I stamped the Poinsettias and smaller flowers separately and colored them in alcohol markers. Then I fussy cut them and set them aside.


I coloured the leaves and berries on the card front in white using a Polychromos pencil. Then I added a lot of fine splatters onto the panel. Next, I adhered the fussy cut florals with foam tape.
To finish, I added some pearls, shadows, and gel pen details.



The two of the cards that I am sharing now are my failed attempts.
But I wanted to share them anyway.
So I coloured the gem in "Crystal-like" colours so to speak. But I think I should have gone with black or maybe silver outline stamping instead of heat embossing the image in gold. It just doesn't look right!

I used a mix of Polychromos and Prismacolors to colour the image.

Add a ton of metallic splatters for my magical background.



I tried to tone it down and move it to white cardstock.
Didn't make much difference :/


Well, at least one looks nice enough! :)

Thank you for stopping by!

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Poppy Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello everyone! 

Welcome to Craft-a-Flower: Poppy Layering Die Set

You must be here from Amanda Baldwin's blog.


Altenew Craft-a-Flower: Poppy Layering Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the 9x12 Watercolour Pad to die-cut my dies out of.
But first I watercolored the panels using Artist Watercolour Pan Set.

Altenew Craft-a-Flower: Poppy Layering Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This was a super easy card to make and put together. I added splatters of black paint. Then I glued everything on Pale Gray Cardstock card front. Next, I stamped the sentiment. To finish, I adhered a few gems.
