Paperworks Challenge

This is the first day of the Paperworks Co Ultimate Summer Challenge..and I had picked Day 1. It turned out to be a sketch Challenge..The restrictions proved to be tough...had to use only Paperworks stamps or Rachel Ann Miller Stamps (RAM) or the digi they provided. That and plus not to make a square or a rectangle card..
I decided to use the digi provided and my printer turned out to be my godsend..I was able to manipulate things well...
So here's the sketch, and my take on it..
And this is my card...
As always blogger is not being's the link to a better image. The image is from Chi Chi memories! (reminds me of Govinda..eeew)

The challenge was announced at 9.30 pm, (Sunday)IST and this card was done by 11 am monday morning..Phew! This is my fastest card ever...I generally don't do well on time constraints, but this time I had to do it.. And was happy with the outcome too..and what's my card without some bling? Got some rhinestones over the heart, and the gorgeous lace, sent by Juhi (love you girl).
The banner was done with photoshop, and I used the sentiment provided by them. Just re-sized it to fit it into the banner!

Watercolor pencils, Sharpie ultrafine and Signo whilte gel pen complete the card.

This is my 2nd all digi rubber stamps are grumbling..they're feeling so left out!!!
So what do you think??

Will let you all know where and when to vote!!

  8. Hi Tejal, Thank you so much for the sweet comments on the balloon card:-) This one of my favourite cards of yours,...

    To answer you question about the shading, I used blue distress ink by Ranger and used their blending sponge applicator.. But to get that smooth look you have to do it on a slick surface like acetate or something so that the sponge slides off the acetate and subtley colours the edges of the card.. you should drop into Jennifer Mcguires blog and see her tutorials.. She uses the Ranger craft sheet, and since its a good slick surface the finish is really nice:-)

    I dont have a craft sheet, so I use a peice of Acetate..

    Have a great day!!!

  9. Tejal, your round card is wonderful! I agree, their restrictions made it tough but so much fun!


Thank you for taking time to appreciate my work!
