I'm going dotty!!!

No no..not in that way...I just got so fascinated with Faith's ( Markie's mom) style of making cards...I had to CASE her style. And its unbelievably easy.

And now after I made this card, I'm not sure whether to call this a valentine day's card or a Christmas card...

I had this stamp from Michele (hi!!!) ..

I did not know what to make of their expressions and these two moose were they surprised to see each other, are they in love..??? If they're in love, I could make this into a Valentine's day card...oh darn, I can't figure it out...Maybe somethings are better left unsaid (LOL!!)

And one more thing..the sun wasn't there in the image..I took a penny, drew a circle and colored it right in with watercolor pencils..

Anyways, I went along with Christine's sketch, Faith's style of card making and what do I get...A
messed up card that's darn cute.


I did stamp on the red CS but since it was tone on tone stamping..the ink just doesn't show up..This card is my entry for Christine's RAK. I really love her style of card making...You should stop by her blog and check it out.

Thank you Faith & Christine for inspiring me..hugs to both of you across the miles..

P.s I didn't know whether the image was a moose or a I went to Google to find out.. Judging by its thick antlers, this one is a moose and those which branch like antlers is a reindeer..I've never seen am I supposed to know.well don't duh me!!! :O)

Sketch Challenge

I made a card for Christine's Sketch challenge..
Here's Christine's sketch..

And here's my interpretation of the sketch..

Its that time of the day when no matter how many pics you take, they're bound to look dark. I had seen this wonderful technique of stamping on a dark background and filling in the stamps with Prisma pencils...I just used my watercolor pencils and its not bad..Its called Black Magic..saw it on StampOwl aka Frances Bryne's blog..

The single flower is stamped on acetate, colored with copper paint on the reverse..The sentiment, is stamped, faux stitched and the edges and the main panel distressed and raised for a faux leather look. Here's a close up...

Tilda birthday card

Here's a birthday card for a 10 yr daughter of a friend. Nothing much to it.. Just simple watercoloring with Faber-Castell pencils, tons of glitter on the cake..and yes, overdone stamping at the edges...but its still cool. Getting a handmade card is a big deal and I know she'll love it.

And of course there a lot of stamps used..the Tilda is a gift from Taru, the happy birthday sentiment inside the card is from a local stamp store, Hobby Ideas.

The stamps at the back of the card are custom made stamps, one from a local stamp store (the one with 100% handmade). Sadly rubber stamps, even business stamps are made from nylon not rubber and it gives a very bad impression on the paper the other one is from Heart and Soul Rubber stamps, Waving hi to Sue.... ( you can see the difference between the nylon impression and the rubber stamp impression)

And how can I forget to show a close up of the glitter on the card..

The card might look dark, but its not..I've just run a burnt edge action on it...Just to make it look super-cool.
