Preety Dutt

1. Floral Friendship Card


For this floral card, she has used the PABD- Rococo Stamp which has gorgeous floral images.
The floral arrangement was stamped onto watercolor paper and then colored in using prisma color pencils.
The background was watercolored using zig markers and an aqua brush.
Then, this panel was die cut using the PABD- Scallop Rectangle die. 
For the sentiment, the PABD- Bold You Stamp was used. The word friend was stamped with Versamark Watermark Ink and heat embossed in white onto a strip of black cardstock. The card was assembled by adhering the white scalloped frame to the A2 sized black card base and then the watercolor panel was foam mounted.
Lastly, a strip of PABD Washi Tape - Lovey Dovey was used as an embellishment onto which the sentiment strip was foam mounted. 

2. Art Journal Spread: You are Awesome...


For this Art Journal Spread, she has used an old book, adhering a couple of pages together to lend it strength and then applying a wash of white gesso over the pages to prepare the surface.
After that she has added strips of PABD’s Rainbow Hues and Prickly Cuteness washi tapes to create the pattern.
Next, the gorgeous and traditional animal images from the PABD - Madhubani stamp were stamped onto printer paper and then glued onto the journal using mod podge.
After this was some watercoloring to add blue, green, yellow and black hues where the washi tapes acted as a good resist to the colors.
Towards the edges of the page, stencil work was done using black soot distress ink and the PABD Stencil- Dimensional. Further, the title was stamped using the PABD-Bold You stamp and the smaller sentiments were heat embossed in white onto black strips.
To add more interest, background stamping was done with a few sentiments using black archival ink. Then, some white dots were added using a white gel pen and white acrylic paint.
In the end, black and white splatter was created to bring the whole design together. 

Before we move forward to check out her fabulous work, let us hear what she has to say!

"Hello! This is my first post here and I am so excited! I would like to thank Vidushi for giving me an opportunity to work with PABD and also with such an awesome team."

Today she has 2 cards for the October challenge inspiration.

Card #1:


1) Stamped the cage from the PABD - Floral Cages stamp set and sentiment in black ink. 

2) Colored the flowers and leaves using copic markers.

3) Went over the cage with golden gel pen and fussy-cut it.

4) Adhered the PABD - Monochrome Beauty washi tape on an A2 white card and colored it with golden gel pen to match the cage.

5) Lastly, adhered the fussy cut cage and sentiment on the card.

Card #2:

The steps followed in this card are similar to card #1. The only difference is that she has colored the washi tape with golden and red gel pen.


To make this super cute project, she has used the lovely PABD - Panda Hugs stamp set.
First, she created the background using PABD - Arrows washi tape. 
Next she stamped a panda from the panda hugs stamp set, fussy-cut, colored and adhered it to an embossed panel.
After that, she stamped a sentiment from the same set and adhered it to project.
Finished it off with some star sequins and some glossy accents to the balloons and panda eyes.

Card #1:


For this project, the gorgeous PABD - Rococo
stamp set has been used with the PABD - Chevron Delight washi tape.
This stamp set makes for a fantastic colored piece.
Added washi tape to the background card panel over which the matted and colored stamped piece was added.
Some brown twine and a sentiment tile finished the piece.

Card #2:


For ths project the same washi (chevron delight) has been used to act as a frame for the feathers.
The feathers along with the sentiment are from PABD - Feathers stamp set, stamped using distress oxides + archival black ink and some sequins have been added to match the feather colors.
Also, the cardstock in that lovely wine color, is a former release by PABD.
