A Spring verse

Hello ,

Here's a card from me in bright  floral colours and loads of greenery .

Well in this part of the world spring has more than arrived and we had both sunshine and rains last week just like what this lovely sentiment says. I picked it from the Graphic 45 Secret Garden Papers .

I have tried arranging the blooms and the foliage almost like a wreath with the sentiment nested in it .The orange bloom is from the sweet williams die , i have almost made it look like a marigold leaving  white spaces on the petals for a natural effect .Have used the gorgeous Basic Grey papers lying in stash along with loads of textures and layers. I have also added the CL Anastasia Border in green PP around the lattice frame .
Also the tiny flowers and the flourish strip are from the CL dies coloured with distress stains and inks .

The background lattice is coloured using Momento Cantaloupe and distress ink crushed olive .
Hope you like my card , would love to know your comments .Thanks for stopping by , Have a great weekend ahead !

A Floral Card

Hello Friends,

Sooo excited to share this card , here's how it looks -

Well i am really hooked on to making roses , i started this card by making the roses first and than finally picked some of my not so used dies. The technique for these spellbinders roses is something i hit upon by chance , is totally new to me as well and i am just loving it ....
Here's a close up-

I have created the BG for this card using Gesso , distress inks - walnut stain , vintage photo and the Kaisercarft script stamp.The frame is Memory Box which has been embossed and coloured using LSG sprays.

Both the Butterfly and the roses have been paper pierecd from Prima Lyric papers .The sentiment is from Penny black and the gorgeous flourish is a marriana die coloured using shabby shutters distress stain ..

So how do you like my card ..Love to read your comments , Thanks a lot for stopping by.
Have a great weekend ahead !

Blooms n buds

Hi friends,

This card from me , is inspired from the amazing cards that i keep seeing on Pinterest .

I started this card by making the blooms first ,somehow i just wanted to create and use yellow coloured roses .Here's a closer view-

Also I just love adding layers and dimension to my cards . I have tried highlighting the blooms using  l natural fibers and torn wooden elements. The Ankara Lace doily peeking from the first layer is shaded using antique bronze distress stain ,love the colour !
And here's a final view -

I have added some texture to the MS wildflower border by embossing  it with gesso.
And seeing the  floral mood of the card i thought it can do without a sentiment . Hope you agree with me . Thanks for passing by , hope you like my work , do let me know your precious comments . Good day !
