CASology #293 Cross

Hello There!

The next Challenge at CASology is up this week:

Week 293 - Cross.jpg

The cue word “CROSS” inspired me to use this cross stitched kitty that i had done 10 years back when i was pregnant with my son Ishaan.  Yup, i am a hoarder, so i preserve many things, even the tiny cross stitched pieces. LOL!

This card is for my son who is my happy place. Just being around him or thinking of him brings me so much joy! I am thankful for having this super fun, kind and smart kid in my life. He has lifted me up in many ways than i can imagine. My strength and my craft buddy! he was really amazed to know that the cloth stitching was done when he was a baby in my womb.

‘Work’ – Guest Designer at Inkspirational

Hi there,

I am very excited and greatly honored to be playing along as Guest Designer at Inkspirational Challenges where the cue word this time is – Work. The various challenges at  Inkspirational are always fun & stimulating, and their DT creations are absolutely inspiring.

I am an HR professional at a Steel Plant and i love giving handmade cards at work. So, here ‘s my take on the word prompt challenge – “WORK”.

To make this card, I first masked the edges with painter’s tape and then inked the  card front with distress oxide inks using a stencil. I then added a few splatters in black for added interest on the background. After i stamped the images from ‘MFT – Get down to business’ stampset with momento black ink, i colored the images with copic markers. The all that was left was to adhere all the images and the sentiment on to the inked background. Some of the images are adhere on to the card front while a few have been adhered with foam tape for dimension. I then adhered the card front to a black card base to form a frame all around the card.

I have made this card for my husband who recently was recognized with an award for his outstanding and dedicated contributions in his work.

I hope my card inspires you to play along Inkspirational Challenges and gets you crafting to spread handmade happiness around. Do visit Inkspirational Challenges for more inspiration from the super talented Design Team. Many thanks to the lovely ladies at Inkspirational for having me.

Hope you liked my card. Do let me know by leaving me comments. I really love reading them.

#110.jpg

One of the coolest way to instantly add interest to any image, background or card is to make is ombré. The current challenge at @aaacardchallenge is exactly that. Here’s my take on the challenge.
