Love Holds A Rainbow!

Hello!

For July ICR has taken a pause with its monthly CoasteRide Challenge...
But nevertheless, it still has its creative inkling for this month by means of Tutorials... (Tut)
There had been a Tutorial posted by Priyanka Mathur at the beginning of the month & here is the second part to the something we have called as
CoasteRide Jul-torials!
 My tutorial for today is A Rainbow Colored Card!
http://indianstampers.ning.com/group/icrchallenges/forum/topics/coasteride-jul-torials-rainbow-colored-card

  Am not very good with colors... As in, My mind & fingers do not sync in well to play with colors.... which makes me fear of me messing up the already existing idea on the canvas... Saying so I still tried a Rainbow Card for my tutorial today... 


The card was inspired by the Sketch from Freshly Made Sketches....  

Preparation:
The card here on the show is based 4" X 6" ... That's the standard size I like to play with regularly.... 
  • Cut Your Card Base the size you are comfortable with & keep it aside...

  • Stamp an image (outlined image only so to add in colors later)of your choice on a piece of Cardstock which would be die cut with the complimenting die, with embossing ink & heat emboss it with white embossing powder... I used the Altenew Persian Motifs!
  • On another cardstock piece which would be used for layering, of a color of your choice; I chose black though the water colors do not show really well on black... I stamped the petals stamp & heat embossed them with white embossing powder...
  • Now playing with the watercolors of your choice fill in the embossed outline image with rainbow colors toned up or down to meet your requirement for the outcome...
  • With the complimenting die, die cut the image out after the colors have dried...
  • The layering cardstock with the embossed images would be water colored with your tone of rainbow colors....
  • Once you are ready with the basic ingredients for your card, its time to put them together to shape up your project... {I preferred to layer it from within which wanted me to cut out a coordinating open on my card base & I then layered the cardstock on the inside of the card facing the card front}
  • Once you close the card base the embossed layer shows up through the die cut space... 
  • You may go ahead & embellish the card as you may choose to... {I wanted a lil more of the rainbow colors on my card; hence opted to dab them out on my card front for which I used the positive of a stitched rectangle set from Cottage Cutz... I placed it on the layered front open face down.}

  • I then went on a color dabbing spree with a not so thick paint brush as I wanted tiny dots of rainbow colors only
  • Once done I removed the masked layer & added another layer for a frame, die cut with the Stitched rectangle Die....
  • I printed out my own sentiment & pinned it up to the die cut motif & glued them down on the card base with few pop dots from Itsy Bitsy...
Now there goes my Rainbow Colored Card for the CoateRide Jul-Torial!
Hope to have you play with us....

UNTIL NEXT, KEEP THE FAITH!!!

LOVE - Is All We Want!

Hello,

ICR saw its second CoasteRide with the month of February;
And its a Valentine Project that is called for & of course with a simple twist of giving the project a dimension.... And We all love doing that especially in the month of Feb on the occasion of Valentine's Day!

So I made one too.... A simple valentine card for hubby who is away from me as of now...
And replicated another to gift it to my KJ's Wife!

So here is what I made....

And it has been inspired by

CS for the base is Fabriano in grey.....
On that layered a piece of Fabriano n pink with a DP from stash layered above....
Ran it thru the CuttleBug with Itsy bitsy Heart die cut to cut out a portion of the layer a lil heartless...
And then placed another fully fledged cut heart to add in as a dimension popped up with a pop dot & foam tape....
On the heart shape I stamped with a Stampin' Up! design in darker shade of yellow... Partially stamped to give it a subtle feel to it....
For the sentiment I stamped "All You Need Is Love" from Keiser Craft Lover Collection....
Dashed in some small rhinestones all arnd to finish the project....

Looking at what I made, my domestic help requested, something be made for her too to be given to her man... I obliged & made a quickie with the die cut heart that was arnd & finished it with a dash of rhinestones arnd..... She left home all happy..... I smiled with this feel of content for I mad made my Valentine's day a happy one by spreading a smile.....

Of course I then went saloning...... shopping...... SINGING...... & back home!

Do chime in with your projects too before it ends by midnight of Feb 28th;

UNTIL NEXT, KEEP THE FAITH!!!
