Water colors on Spring bouquet

Hello There !

Today i am very exited to share a project that i made using water colors.

bharati nayudu avery elle spring boquet watercolor flowers handmade card

I first water colored the flowers from spring bouquet stamp set by Avery Elle which are my favourite n fussy cut the image. I then inked my background using stencil by craft angles and distress inks.

I used foam squares to adhere the flowers to the background for dimension. I finished the card by white heat embossing the sentiment and adding a few embellishments.

I am also playing with The flower challenge where the theme is to pick any of their previous challenges. Oh! So many options ha ha ha… since these flowers are my favourite I picked to play with their challenge #13 – use your favourite flower.

Thankyou for stopping by and I hope you like my card. Do let me know what you think about it in the comments. I really appreciate them and love reading them.

AAA Cards #118 Frames

Hello There !

Happy Sunday and i am so glad your joining me today for the next AAA Cards Challenge!

The theme this time is FRAMES.

IMG_1684

Isn’t it just perfect to inspire a Clean and Simple design. Here are a few ideas to help you start – frame your focal point using die cuts, stamping around the focal point, use the stamp of a frame, stamp your sentiment inside a frame, create a scene inside a window or frame your image with the sentiment. Whatever be the technique you use, keeping the design framed and contained will surely enhance the CAS look and maximize the white space. So join us with your creative take on the theme FRAMES.

Here’s my take on the challenge:

Bharati Nayudu Lawn Fawn stamps Frames and seasons tweetings AAA Cards CAS CardFor my card I first stamped and colored this adorable frame from the Flirty frames stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Then I stamped the tiny branch and the cute lil birdie from the Season’s Tweetings stamp set by Lawn Fawn. This sweet lil bird reminded me of one of my favorite childhood cartoon characters – Tweety. So I colored it yellow and gave it a blue cap. I wanted to make the branch appear as if it was somewhere high and so I masked the bird and the branch to ink a few clouds in the background of the frame. I finished the card by stamping a few pretty flowers and the sentiment in scripty font from the Flirty frames stamp set by Lawn Fawn.

I hope my cards inspires you to play along AAA Cards challenge and gets you crafting to make some handmade happiness for your loved ones. Just remember to KEEP IT CAS (Clean And Simple).

AAACards #117 Geometric

Hello There!

First of all thank you to all the love AAACards received for it birthday recently. Our gallery is full is amazing cards and we were thrilled at the overwhelming response. I am sure you all enjoyed playing along with us as well.

Now, I had once read somewhere that life without geometry is just pointless !!! lol!

Well we at AAACards have a point to make so we are back with the next challenge theme which is  – GEOMETRIC

#117.jpg

The moment i saw this cue word the Laura Basen fan inside me got excited. So i went with iank blending using stencils.  Incidentally i was listen to this song ” I am in love with the shape of you…” while making this card and went with the same for the sentiment. Here ‘s my take

bharati CAS geomerty card.jpg

I learnt at AAACards that one of the ways to have a good CAS design is to have a lot of empty white space and crisp clean lines.

Here is another card with the same panel and remember, white space need not be white, as long as its empty and un-patterned.

CASOLOGY #303 Farm

Hello There!

Old MACDONALD had a farm, E-I-E-I-O
And on his farm he had a pig, E-I-E-I-O
With a oink oink here, And a oink oink there
Here a oink, there a oink, Everywhere a oink oink

 Did you read this or sing it in your mind… lol!!!

The next Challenge at CASology is up this week and the cue word is Farm and now you know what came to my mind immediately… Here a oink, there a oink, Everywhere a oink oink

C39EF8AF-910A-4F60-98D4-967973BE2278.jpeg

Here’s my take7518835248-img-0394-e1528197788938.jpg

To make this card i first stamped the images of a pig and the fence from the Hog Heaven stamp set by My Favorite things with Memento Black ink on Neenah Solar white paper (both are copic friendly) and colored with copic makers.  Then I inked a little blue and green using distress oxide inks on a white card stock before I stamped the sentiment. Finally I adhered the images with foam tape to give a little dimension.

 

I hope my card inspires you to get crafting and play along with us at  CASology . Just remember to keep it CAS by following the guidelines on the CASology blog.
