Roses all over!

Hi Friends,

I am here to share a card I made using My Favorite things - Background stamp - Roses all over. I wanted this stamp since very long but it was out of stock everywhere. And then I found it on while I was placing order for other stuff. I love, love, love their collection - a great mix of products. They keep all the latest releases of major brands and offer discounts quite often.  And super sweet Vanessa & her customer service is a bonus....:) !

So here is the card.

I have embossed the background in gold and colored with mission gold water colors. Sentiment die is by PTI. Both the white panes are mounted on craft foam to give dimension. Added some splatter to tie the whole look.

Close Up:

Hope you like it. Have a great weekend. See you soon with two more cards which I just finished...:)

Trying New Mediums - Jane's DT

Hey there,

How are you all!
Today, I am sharing two cards. I have used same floral stamp for both the cards. I wanted to try my new mediums- Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and Mission Gold Water Colors. And I find Jane's Doodles Pretty Peonies set a perfect fit to practice colouring.

First card is with pencils.

I am not an experienced person to review the pencils but I am loving these. They are oil base so you can build layers with them which is an experience in itself. The intensity of pigments you can lay on the paper varies with the sharpness of the lead, the angle at you hold the pencil & the pressure you apply to it.  I have used three yellows on a dark grey card stock. Yes, it takes a long time and patience but it pays in the end...:). I am planning to take some online classes to learn more about it. 
I have used MISTI to stamp two exactly identical panels - light oan dark grey. I die cut the dark panel, coloured it with pencils, aligned and mounted it on the light panel with foam adhesive.

For second card, I have use Mission Gold Water colors.

I love distress inks and koi water colors as a water-based mediums but always wanted to try traditional artist water colors and knowing that my son gifted me these on mother's day ...:)! What can I say...they are amazing( my son & colors both)! 
The colors are rich and stays vibrant even after drying. They are very creamy which makes blending very easy. They are very concentrated too so these 15ml tubes will go for years.  Again, I have a long way to go but happy to be well equipped!

I hope you will like my new experiments! Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I would love your feedback.
