Two Little Sparrow cards and excited news!!!

Hello friends!
Good Morning!

I am back again after a break!
Today, I have created two cards as a Guest Designer with my first ever own designed stamp set and stencil, Happy me!!!!
I am a stamp designer artist for Peek-a-boo Designs, so excited:))))))
It is an Indian Co. and an awesome owner Vidushi, gave me this great opportunity to design stamps and stencils, feeling so much honored and she helped me to make my dream become a reality........!

My own designed stamp and stencil:
  The Little sparrow and Beaded stencil

For the first card......... Here is my take on the sketch

I stamped the Little sparrow image on Bielo white CS in Pumice stone and little birdie too. I watercolored the whole image with my Zig clean color real brushes first and for more dimension, I added pencil shading on it with some Staedtler Watercolored pencils, fussy cut out the image.
 By masking technique, I again stamped the flower part only and colored them. Fussy cut it and don't forget to color the edges too. I embossed my flowers with the embossing tool and pad, added few pollens inside and adhered them on the main flower image, Look at the depth and dimension on 3 D flowers, I totally love the amazing results!
I die cut a dual stitched rounded rectangle and created a ground scene by adding some grass using zig brush markers and added fussy cut bush too. Now adhered my whole image on it.

I die cut the stitched scalloped border out of the blue glittered sheet and die few holes for more dimension.
Die cut a Fishtail banners out of vellum sheet using the same dual stitched rectangle die by using one of a corner, how easy-peasy:)))) and added some hole using  the stitch hole die. Stamped the sentiment from the same set using Versamark embossing ink , heat embossed it with Primary ebony Wow embossing powder.
For my card base, I die cut a black colored CS by extended the dual stitched die cut from the same set( the biggest one). Now adhered a blue CS sheet and now adhered my main panel with that scalloped border.
And finished off the card by adding some glossy accents and sequins too.
Here is the inside view:

Now for the second card........
                       I started with my dual stitched rounded rectangle die out of a watercolor CS and die cut a window from the same die set. Now masked all 4 sides and applied embossing paste using beaded stencil.I sprayed the panel with water spray bottle and applied Dylusions acrylic paint and misted it water again according to my need, added some splatters too.
       Next, I stamped the little sparrow image on Bielo CS using distress inks. Firstly, I filled the whole image with my white gel pen for texture and then watercolored it with distress inks and left the sparrow image as it is, fussy cut it. You can see the white textures on the leaf:). Now I die cut one more panel for inside with window and adhered the fancy lattice die in between the both panels. Adhered my image with pop dots.
           Die cut the inspire word 4 times and heat embossed it with embossing powder. Added glossy accent on it for more depth and dimension.

Next, I die cut a fancy lattice for my window out of an adhesive white felt sheet and sprinkled fine glitter dust on it and burnished properly it with my finger.

For the inside: I applied distress inks on the panel and misted it with water. Then stamped a little birdie using mermaid lagoon ink on a white sheet and watercolored it with distress colors, added some detailings using the white gel pen and fussy cut it. Partially stamped the bluebell flower branch and watercolored it too and now fussy cut them.  Adhered the flower branch with dimensions and my birdie using pop dots. Stamped the sentiment in dual colors.

Hope you enjoyed my both creations with my own designed stamps! 
Happy crafting!
