Warm wishes- Diwali!!!


Its been a long time since I got continuous holidays... Yayyy!!! I have 5 days of official holidays coming up next week. Apart from studies ofcourse I will be crafting too. I have a small tutorial planned for my decoupage quilled earring version 2. I will be doing it mostly in 2 parts. This should be up by this month end.

Now coming onto the challenge we have for you at Indian Craft room. This times theme is Diwali+ sketch. Your creations need to be diwali oriented and you will have to follow the sketch that is provided by the Design team. This was a tough nut for me to crack coz I haven't tried my hands ever at making cards according to the sketch. There was some brainstorming that went on for this particular one.
Click on the above pic to be redirected to ICR site!!!

So here's the sketch you have to work with.
I always wanted to try my hands at shaker cards and I finally did so. 
This is my design team inspiration for Indian craft room challenge this fortnight.

Base card: I used Neenah solar white cardstock for the card base. Colored it using spiced marmalade Tim Holtz distress inks. Ran my double sided tissue tape runner horizontally to create stripes. Then stuck deco foil from iCratfs to the tape. I alternated between silver and gold colour deco foil.

Shaker panel- Coloured it using Fossiled amber and highlighted using abandoned coral. cut out a circle in the center and attached acetate sheet to the back side of the panel. Build up space for the sequins to move in by using 3M double sided thick tape. Using Versamark embossing ink to stamp medallions in random fashion the panel and dusted it with gold mica powder which was then set using water. As the distress inks reactivate with water the panel has a distinct pattern that is formed!!!

I kept the focus point as a diya that is stuck on the acetate. The diya is made from paper piecing.

The sentiment is printed on my printer.

Some new beginnings- Happy announcements

Heya ppl,

I have some great news to share. Remember the audition I gave for Indian craft room which I had posted recently about. Yayyy!!! I got selected. 

Have been given the opportunity to work along side awesome artists as a new ICR designer at Indian craft room for 6 months!!!
During my BDS times this was the site I would go to get inspired by the wonderful work of others. I am elated to have started to work on projects!!! The challenges will run fortnightly. The first challenge which is named as Coasteride ICRCAUT01- Triangles+more than three.

More about this particular coasteride here and submission linky tool too :) here's the link

So here's my first DT inspiration project for Indian craft room.

The first coasteride is all about triangles. Basically the project should have 3 or more triangles. Here's what I came up with for the coasteride.

I made a 5*7 inch canvas. 

A little about the process of making:

First I made by background which is made from quilled triangles of various sizes. I then gave them a layer of gesso which was left to dry. After it was dry used Viva decor Inka gold metallic pastes to colour in the triangles. I used a gradation of colours. 

Used chipboard from Itsy Bitsy heat embossed them with different colours. The butterfly is heat embossed as well. 

 My focus point is the quote which reads- ' If you were a triangle, you would be acute one'. The cardstock is then coloured with distress inks- Fossiled amber and spiced marmalade.

Used doilies and flowers to match up the creations. As final touch I sprayed a layer of silver Lindy's stamp gang spray to add more shimmer. 

That's all for my creation.

You can view the creations of my fellow DT's here!!!

Supplies used.
- 5*7inch canvas, 3mm quilling strips, gesso, Chipboards shapes, doilies, and pink flower from Itsy Bitsy.
- Lindy's stamp gang silver spray.
