Peek-a-boo october release


Crafty friends..
Here I am with 3 cards for Peek-a-boo designs. 

Card #1

** This was the card which i made when i was struggling with ideas. 
** I secured card base n stencil and applied embossing paste.  Left it to dry of its own. 
** Sprayed gold shimmer mist from ranger. 
** Gold heat embossed two butter flies and fussy cut them out.
** Coloured one butterfly with copics (carefully) and few strokes with gold marker. Glued it on other plain butterfly.  
** Heat embossed sentiment on vellum n sandwiched it between two scalloped circles. 
** Placed sentiment n butterfly with liquid glue. 
** To finish the card added few rainstones towards top n 3 more on butterfly's body.

Here is closeup of butterfly n gold shimmer mist.

 (1 sentiment, 2 die cuts, 2 fussy cut images, 1 stencil)


Card #2

** This is my first attempt in colouring on vellum. 
** I stamped & gold heat embossedin the image on vellum. 
** Used few copics to colour it on back (many have said that colouring directly on heat embossed image with copics will damage copic nibs). 
** I didn't feel like taking risk with glueing vellum on card front. So i left 1/2" towards top so that i can fold and glue it behind. 
** Heat embossed sentiment with gold embossing powder. 
** Added few enamel dots to the card.

Here is close up sentiment and the the coloured flowers.

** Heat embossed sentiment with white embossing powder.

  3. Swapna, your cards are gorgeous!! Thank you for sharing 1st card in I Love Math Challenge, but unfortunately doesn't meet the challenge, as well as your other two entries you shared. I love how you stretched the challenge and used three of something on each card you made, but the challenge was to create CAS, birthday card with a triangle/triangles as a focal point. I appreciate your effort and looking forward to see you in future challenges. Big hugs! xx
