No line Watercoloring - Zig Clean Color Real Brush || Your Next Stamp

Hello Crafty Friends,

How was your Tuesday.?? Hopefully good.. Well I'm having a great day as I did a lot of crafty work today and it seems you guys will have a lot of videos to watch these coming weeks... As I'm really getting into making cards with videos for you guys, as I have not really used my new supplies as I should have...

So I started with a technical video.. I have been practicing a lot of No - Line watercoloring and I thought I will share few of my views and findings with you all..

So for no line watercoloring you can start with a light color ink pad and any watercolor that you have in hand.. There is no rule that anything is better than what you have in hand.. But, yes there is always a "but", I prefer to use ZIG CLEAN COLOR REAL BRUSH PENS. 

Well the reason is very simple, this markers have very vibrant colors, and they blend like butter on Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock.. So you don't have to put in a lot of effort to have a perfect blending, and it will be a very controlled coloring as you don't have to use a lot of water to blend the colors.. 

Also as the colors are so vibrant you don't really have to create too many layers to get the perfect dimensional look.. Sounds something you can do..?? Just give it a try and you are gonna love it.. TRUST ME...

Soak Your Troubles Away - Wall Piece

Hello Friends,

Today I'm here to share a fun project with you... I have been thinking of creating it for quite sometime and I did it at last today... And I love how the whole thing turned out and I'm sure you guys gonna love it too..

I made a wall piece out of 8by10 Canvas for Bathroom, As this quote was perfect for the place - "Soak your troubles away".

I will confront that this is not my original idea, I did saw it somewhere on Internet and I really liked the whole thing - how it was put together and this got stuck in my mind...
Well I did add a lot of elements that are completely  different from the original piece.. I added a lot of details that was not present in the original piece..

Well without much ado, let me share some pictures with you....

Isn't it gorgeous... Oh my gosh.. I love it...
I just love how beautiful it turned out.. I love that I was able to achieve that 3 dimensinal look that I wanted to create... It really looks like a Bathroom... 
So to create that look I first sketched out the outlines of the wall on the canvas with pencil.. Then to lighten that pencil mark I painted a layer of white gesso.. So my pencil mark was dark enough that I was able to see a little bit of my guide lines to paint the walls and create the 3d look but not very dark to look through the colors (as I used light pearl yellow paint to color my walls).

For my floor, I wanted to create a tiled effect similar to my bathroom, so I used light brown color to paint the floor and then added dimension using darker and lighter shades of brown.. 
It really turned out great...

Now for my elements on canvas - The bath tub, the shelf with bottles and the towel, I created all this separately and then stuck them on to the canvas..
I hand sketched the bathtub, legs and the bottles, fussy cut them and colored them to stick on the canvas.. For the shelf, I just cut a piece of paper and colored it and stuck it on to the canvas.. 

Then for the towel I used a scrap piece of cloth, cut it to size, colored it using copic markers and and folded using glue to make it look neat.. For the rods, I used a piece of chipboard, cut to size and for the side knobs I used one of the jewelry findingd from my stash.. I actually fit perfectly for the knob.. I bent the chipboard from both the sides and stuck it using glue, and then stuck the finding on top as if its holding the rod there.. And then I hanged the piece of cloth using some double sided tape.. 

You can see the close up picture above..

Then for the sentiment I used the Concord n 9th stamp set and stamped the whole sentiment using black archival ink.. But somehow I thought the sentiment was properly placed on the whole scene and it didnt look good to me,.. So then I used my black marker and added some balck dots here n there all over the scene to bind everything together...

A collage of pictures for you to see the piece and its close ups together..

Hope you enjoyed it.. Thank you for visiting.. Have a nice day...

Shaker Wine Tag || My Favorite Things

Hello Friends,

Welcome to another crafty post at my blog... Today I'm here with a fun Shaker Wine Tag.. Sounds exciting, right??
Think of a wine bottle you get all dressed up with some fun shaker card.. Ooohhhh, I would love that.. A red wine that too with some Shaker Card is like DOUBLE BINGO... 

So lets see how to create this tag so that you can gift it to friends and family and make them feel as if they have got DOUBLE BINGO...

Well, I didnt have any Wine Bottle at the moment so using whatever was handy.. 
To start I made two panels for my background to create 2 sides of my tag using Emboss Resist technique. I Stamp the sentiment repeatedly on the background using versamark clear ink and heat set it using Clear Embossing powder.. Then I inked the Background using distress ink to create the emboss resist background.

Then I die cut the panels using Wine tag Die and then using the Wine glass die I made the Shaker Windows on both my panels.
Then I applied Transparency on both the panels to make a see through shaker window and created well on of the panel using one layer of foam tape. 

Then I added some Rose Gold Sequins from PRETTY PINK POSH and some seed beads from my stash as shaker materials into the Shaker well. And then closed the top by lining up the other panel on to the lower panel.. And for sentiment I used Cheers die to die cut a white cardstock and stsicked it using some Multi Medium Matte glue from rangers...
