You Are Beautiful

wp-image-2005998778Playing along with muse card challenge #232 with this card. I just loved Anita Bowden’s design which had so many fun techniques like water lifting, masking n using glossy accent on die cut.

I started of my card by sticking two low tack masking tapes diagonally on my panel and inking the area with distress inks. Then I did the water lifting technique using a stencil. I then stuck the black word die cut and the black strip with the white heat embossed sentiment. The final touch was to use glossy accent on the word die cut to make it glossy and a bit raised. Then all that was left was to peel off the masking. Neat n simple with beautiful results.

I absolutely loved playing along with this challenge and casing the super talented Anita Bowden’s card.

Hope you like my attempt. Have a great day!

Best Bud

Hello there!

Today I am sharing a card that I made using a makeup brush for ink blending. I normally struggle with soft ink blending n fading it to the white. But I really like the results with the makeup brushes and it is very easy as well. Also, these makeup brushes are very cheap compared to the clarity brushes that have been on my wish list since the first time I saw those.

I am playing along with two challenges with this card:

The CASology challenge the cue card is “BUD” and less is more challenge where the challenge is to use a real object on the card.

There is small story with this card that I want to share. I told my card idea to my husband and our nine years old son, who liked the idea a lot. But when I started to make the card I realized that I didn’t have an ear bud at home. My son heard me saying that the CASology challenge is getting closed tomorrow and that I have to enter the card today. While I was wondering what I should do, my sweet little son appeared after 10 mins with two-three buds in hand for me. He had actually gone to our neighbor’s house n got me those. My God I was so happy. So this card is extra special to me.

Hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I loved playing along with the challenges.

I really love reading your feedback so please do leave your comments

Have a great day!
