A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

 

  • I took 2 blank tags and colored them using Craftyscrappers “Grape juice” and “dancing peacock” shimmer sprays and lift excess color using tissue ( here I just dabbed tissue paper on tags at random places)
  • Created texture on the first tag using Stencil “Geometrical patterns” and Craftyscrappers “Sprout” and “Stem” Shimmer paste , Just lay down the stencil on tag and spread generous amount of paste using palette knife ( I must tell you this pastes colors are so gorgeous and beautiful that makes you to fall in love with your project again and again) #MustHaveSupplies
  • For second tag I used another shades of Shimmer paste and those are “Cupcake” and “Blush” using same technique (To see these amazing shimmer paste result, don’t forget to watch the video, It’s already up on our channel)
  • Then I took 2 raw Sea Horse chipboard cut-outs and also covered entire cut-outs using Shimmer paste called “Butter” & Tinted gold” and for another cut-out I used “Jet” Shade.
  • To give the base for these Chipboard cut-outs, I used normal white sewing thread and pasted it on tag, after that I glue down the sea-horse cutout on tag, I follow the same process for both the tags.
  • Finished these tags by distressing the edges of tag using Black ink pad and adding some inspirational sayings…

  • Stamped the big numbers from the Simple Numbers stamp set from Craftyscrappers on a Premium White CS with Versamark using Wow opaque bright white EP and heat embossed it.

  • I flicked some water using my fingers as I wanted big splotches, dabbed off the excess water with paper towel.
  • Now I stamped the adorable hedgehog from Enjoy the Ride stamp set from CS and a trunk from the same stamp set in jet black archival ink on a watercolor sheet and colored it with using Copic markers and add detailing using a white gel pen.
  • Fussy cut them, applied black marker at the edges after cutting.
  • Now created my foreground at the bottom by stamping some grass and mushrooms using same stamp set.
  • Watercolored them using ZIG brushes.
  • Stamped and cut the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Doodly Blooms stamp set.
  • Stamped the number 5th from the same set and the balloon from Hippo Wishes to You stamp set and colored them too, fussy cut them.
  • At the end created the whole birthday scene using pop dots and finished it off with some light blue color sequins from CS and added some shine using crystal stickles.

a brief tutorial
 
 
  • For this card, I started with two cute hedgehog images, bicycle( 2 times and heat embossed it with clear EP for shine) and some sunflowers from Enjoy the Ride stamp set.
  • Stamped all the images on a watercolored sheet. Coloured them using Copic markers and Zig brushes.
  • Fussy cut all the images.

  • Now the fun part, it is moving!!! Showcasing in a video clip.(CHECK AT THE END)
  • On a strip of black CS, stamped the sentiment from the same set and a bird from the Hippo wishes to you stamp set and heat embossed using Opaque Bright white EP.

2GORGEOUS CARDS & A SHAKER TAG BY GDT Shikha Agrawal: brief tutorials.

Hi , this is  Shikha Agrawal,
 winner of Craftyscrappers Challenge#21″FESTIVAL OF COLORS
and today i am so happy to be on Craftyscrappers blog, to share with you all, 2 of  the cards and 1 shaker tag that i created as a Guest Designer here.

challenge21 festival of colors.jpg
A LITTLE  ABOUT ME
“I am Shikha Agrawal and I am a Passionate crafter and i reside in dhule, with my mom-dad and sisters and own an art gallery S2 Art Connection.
ideally completed fashion designing and 
i love crafting and arts since my childhood.
I am into this venture from last 5 years professionally. Initially I started making explosion boxes, pop-up card, bouquets, scrapbooks etc.. as i started exploring the huge world of crafting my passion tends me to do/learn many more new things. Basically my mom is also an artist but she could get any platform.. i therefore, represent myself as her skills that are passed on to me.”
MY CRAFTING STYLE:
Particularly i dont tend to have any crafting style.. but yes i love much more many innovative cards and especially scrap booking..but these days i have been fan of stamping as well as heartfelt creations. i love working on my craft projects with low music and lots of stuff scattered all around me.. It refreshes after crafting especially when i am upset or low.
MY INSPIRATION:
Firstly as i said earlier its definitely my mom..
i love when people around me, who appreciate my work and it boost me to do more beautiful projects..
as i started exploring crafters my inspirations are:
vinita jain
anita kejriwal
darshana savla
rajni chawla.
MY VIEWS ABOUT craftyscrappers
I came to know about craftyscrappers through social media which was facebook.
i then started exploring their store, and the most amazing things i found there are cute,beautiful and versatile range of stamp collections that they have, ranging from a wide array of themes and especially Indian festivals and stencils ofcourse.
the stamp sets are really very unique plus they are affordable to everyone and the best thing is they are “MADE IN INDIA”.
They have a huge collection of art and craft supplies which are also pocket friendly and versatile in nature.
The shimmer pastes that they have are one of a kind and they are the first ones to ever launch such amazing products in india,
the pastes are too awesome and yummy i would say… 🙂
Their effects are just out of the world!
frankly i just love craftyscrappers!
for their entire collection of stamps and other wonderful products which are also made in india.

I have a huge lot of their products, especially stamps in my stash and i love them!!!

(word creation technique)

1a.jpg

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • On a watercolour card panel, I stamped the “BIRTHDAY” word using Craftyscrappers Simple alphabets set and coloured them with zig markers.
  • Stamped the remaining sentiment.
  • On another card, I stamped the images, colored them with zig markers and fussy cut them.
  • On a colored card base I mounted the panel with the sentiments using foam adhesive.
  • Next, using foam adhesive, mounted the images on the card.I have kept this card very simple. 

 

SOME CLOSE-UPS:

CARD #2: Birthday Card
(Background creation technique)

2.jpg

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • On a white card panel, I stamped the image using grey ink repeatedly to cover the entire panel.
  • Stamped the image, colored with zig markers and fussy cut it.
  • Heat embossed the sentiment using Versa mark and white embossing powder.
  • I wanted the background to be very subtle, so using a sheet of vellum, I covered the entire panel from the front and tuck the ends of the vellum under the panel (So I need not stick on the front as the adhesive will be seen through vellum)
  • Mounted this panel on a colored card base using foam adhesive.
  • Mounted the image and the sentiment on the vellum.
  • Lastly, added few enamel dots and googly eyes to the chameleon to complete my card.
