Mixed Media Tag!

Hi everyone.

Its been a while since I have done a project without a colored image so I thought it would be a nice change to show you all a mixed media tag.

I started off with a layer of gesso to prime the tag. Then I used MFT Mixable  stencil to add embossing paste for some texture. I also added some glimmer mist and ink sprays.

Finally I embellished this tag with some flowers, pearls, micro beads etc.

Hope you like it :)

The flowing stars are stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
To add a little sparkle, I have added wink of stella on the background and fairy's dress but it has not shown up in the pics :(

Under the Sea!

Hello Friends! Made this card today using a beautiful mermaid digi from 'Simply B Designs' and gave it a monochromatic twist.

To make this card, first I  colored the mermaid digi and then masked it off with a paper. Next,  I  stamped the 'Coastal Escape' stamp by Kaisercraft to create rest of the scene.

I colored everything with pencils on kraft CS and drew the bubbles myself. 

To finish it off, I added a piece of twine .

Hope you like it :)

Little Miss Sunshine!

Hello Friends, Here is a cheerful card that can brighten up your day :)  

With the 30 Day Coloring Challenge going on, I am enjoying making cards with colored images.

To create this card, I used this beautiful digital stamp from Sweet Escape. I colored her with my favorite colors purple and yellow. I used copics for the dress and pencil colors for the sunflowers. 

Lastly, I embellished the card with some sequins and a 'hello' die cut.

Glued micro beads in the centre of the flowers for a realistic look.

Hope you like it :)
