Hello Friends ! Pooja here I am very excited to share my projects as Guest Designer for Peek a Boo Designs.I would like to Thank Vidushi Saraf and the entire DesignTeam for giving me this opportunity . I was very happy to receive these wonderful made in India clear Stamps from PABD .
Did you recognize the flowers ? Yes "Palash " also aptly called Flame of Forest .It is said that nature plays holi through them .I am Lucky to have seen palash trees in full bloom so many
times. Hand drew and watercolored the flowers and stamped the sentiment.Some
ink smooshing in the background after all is a holi card !
|Clear stamps from PABD Stringy sentiments Happy holi,DMask|
They have excellent quality I can tell you as I have used them with pigment inks, dye inks ,Distress inks and embossing inks too .Each time the result was clear crisp image.I made a bunch of cards using them. Sharing the Holi cards first. I loved the bold happy holi sentiment no need to add much on cards.

Now the cards with Damask Stamp set, This stamp set has wonderful patterns and so many possibilities of using them on projects we can create beautiful patterns, backgrounds,embellishments ,flourishes and even labels for sentiments.
|2 tone stamping with pigment Inks|
For this card I created the background by 2 tone stamping with pigment inks.I have used the smallest image from this set to create the pattern and the sentiment is from Stringy Sentiments.
|Background created by heat embossing damask pattern|
Coming to last card, heat embossed the pattern and then sponged Salty oceans Distress ink. Embellished with readymade flower (Gift from Shalu ) ,the leaves are from this stamp set and I also used the small flourish designs to create the label .
Now the Final project an Altered box.I have altered black packaging box.
Stamped the damask pattern with versamark ink and then brushed loose metallic powder on it .
|Pattern created with small flourish stamp|
Got a nice vintage gold pattern which made the box look elegant ,No need of any additional embellishments just added few pearls.I hope you all loved the card and box and are inspired to try out this wonderful stamps.(I will be sharing few more pictures of the projects on my Blog) My Heartfelt Thanks to PABD Team for the amazing stamps and a chance to share my project on the blog !
