Think Happy Thoughts

Hello there!
Hope all are enjoying the weekend!
Its another week and this is the last challenge of this month at ! And the theme is so amazing and fun "make your own background" which is hosted and sponsored by a very talented artist "Pallavi Iyer"!!! And here is my creation and my own fun background is based on embossing paste, embossing powders and my own stencil!

I made my own stencil using butterfly magic die and put it on my textured white card base and applied embossing paste and added silver pearl embossing powder on it, to give it more life and heat embossed it after 10 minutes to settled down! Isn't it looking gorgeous and I just love this shining and pearly background!

 For the embellishment, I die cut the butterfly 3 times and heat embossed them with my wow embossing powders, I just love them. And for the pink metallic shade, I added two colors which is listed below.   I added some snippets of strip along the edge for more dimension and heat embossed both the strips to match the panel. On a snippet of vellum I stamped the sentiment and blend the raspberry distress ink lightly at the backside of vellum. I scattered some enamel dots on my card to make it more beautiful!
Hope you like it!

White textured cardstock; snippet of vellum

Watercolor flowers with metallic look

Good afternoon!
Welcome back to another inspiration week and this time our host and sponsor is Gayatri Murali !!!
There are some amazing crafters out there with ingenious ideas.  And she is just amazing and very talented, I tell ya! And she gave us a waterolor challenge based on this inspirational photo.

Here is my watercolor creation and I was inspired by soft colors and dimension in her water coloring!
Here is a closer view:
I have used regular watercolored CS. For the first time I have used my new Hero arts Large flower image in gold embossing powder and I think this is perfect for watercoloring! I love Distress inks! I love the way color blend so well and you can create beautiful effect. I love the way it turned out......with metallic look! The butterfly is colored using my gold gel pen. I cut the thinking of you sentiment 4 times and embossed it many times for the perfect shining! And added a little gold glittere washi tape:)
Here is the inside view with my new film strip washi tape and I always try to use the leftover scraps in my creations and I think it fit perfectly with my outer design!

Color burst with Butterflies!

Hello Friends!
Welcome back to my blog! Hope all of you enjoyed your weekend!
Its a new month with lots of celebration!!!! It means new challenge at CSCC. We have to use the Craft Shop Beautiful Banner as a theme, sponsored by a lovely Lady Priya Sivraj !!! I love to play with watercolors and I am inspired by color burst and butterflies!

Here is my DT post! 
Tomorrow is a Friendship Day. So I made this beautiful card for one of my friend!
I took a scrap piece of watercolor paper. On a small piece of a tile, I spread different acrylic colors on it and sprinkled some water and press my watercolor paper on it and got this beautiful result!
Using  a stencil I applied  a thin layer of embossing paste on it and outlined the whole design with my Japanese brush pens for more dimension:).
Then I took a white CS for my card base and popped up it at the right side of my card. Then I added a colorful dots washi tape and a sequins ribbon! Recently  I won a candy from Janis She sent me this gorgeous butterfly die cut set as a bonus gift, Thank u so much Janis:) Happy to use it here! I stamped a banner with best friends sentiment and fussy cut it and popped it up too. And added few flower sequins on butterflies.
Hope you enjoyed this creation and like it!
