Crafting with Vinita!

Hello to all Peek-a-boo Designs fans!
Happy weekend!

This is my final post as a DT for this term! It was immense pleasure to work with all my teammates. Thank u so much Vidushi, feeling so happy and grateful, really enjoyed to use all beautiful products from PABD!

Today I am sharing some different style cards - Yeah, hold on to your chairs as this is not usually my style. Sometimes it is good for me to just try something different from time to time!

Card 1

Valentine is approaching soon and this is a perfect mixed media card with vintage feel on it! It is a mixing of stamping, lot of layers, paper scraps, dies, embellishments, beads, molds with a classic combo of gold, black and red!

In this project,  I started with stamping using Floral directions stamp set in black archival ink. I used different dies: I used dual leaf dies and distressed them in two shades of green color. Die cut lots of gear in black and white card stocks. Die cut a couple in black and added a layer to bride dress with flutter by on it.  Added mu own handmade molds, applied red splash color to them. A cute butterfly metal charm also added.

Lots of mulberry flowers in red and white color with micro beads, natural stems in green, yellow and red color enhancing the beauty of this project!

And in inside I continued with matching design!

Card 2

This is a one layer CAS card with gold beauty!

Using my Misti, I stampeed the floral zen image and heat embossed it in Metallic gold.

 Using my watercolor pencils I directly fill the colors in different shades. Have you seen this shimmer, so beautiful. A close-up view:

Now on a white strip, I applied clear embossing pad directly and heat embossed it in metallic gold to match with my floral image. Now adhered this strip on my panel and heat embossed the sentiment too. For the blings, I added Gold stickles dots.

Card 3

This is a Feminine card with a combo of white, gold, copper and some pearl blings!

I started with dry embossing panel using Damask delight stencil.

 Applied some embossing paste for more textures at the focal Panel. Now spray some water to wet that panel and added gold alcohol splash and gesso to create more interest.

The Chole stems reminds me of fireworks going up in the air, so I layered them on my watercolored panel. On a vellum strip, added the sentiment in copper from Sunshine stamp set. For a bit of more sparkle I added some pearl blings.

General Process Used for Art Journalling:
(The intent was to build multiple layers with stamps, stencils, die cuts and washi tapes without making the journal pages too bulky)

1. Prepared the base with white gesso 
2. For texture, applied modelling paste through different PABD stencils 
3. Once the paste was dry, added colors using acrylic paints, sprays and inks. Created drips and movement by spraying on water 
4. Added background stamping with archival ink using PABD stamps
5. Added die cuts (colored using inks and sprays). These were die cut from various PABD dies
6. To further build the background, did background stenciling with PABD stencils & archival inks
7. A few strips of PABD washi tapes were added to the compositions for interest. Also, added some thread and a few embellishments like stars in one of the pages
8. Did some doodling & journalling with a black pen
9. In the end, created splatter with ink and water down white gesso
