a brief tutorial

 

  
  • 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 placed a curved border element from Create-a-scene(Sunburst stencil ) at the bottom and Used 2 similar shades of DI Stormy sky and broken china to create the background and at the bottom now removed the stencil and applied Crushed olive DI.
  • 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.

Untitled-1.png

 

  •  I took empty deodorant bottle, glued bottle cap so that it won’t get opened and applied “Greasy Charcoal” chalk paint using palette knife.
    (Using palette knife to apply paint is one of my favorite way to create texture).
  • I wrapped stencil called “Geometrical patterns” around the bottle and secure the stencil edges using masking tape.
  • I used Craftyscrappers shimmer paste “Jet” to create texture through stencil and also applied this paste on empty spaces of bottle just to put everything together.
  • Glued down metal leaves and wrapped thread around the bottle cap & also added metal handle.
  • Covered these added embellishment using “Greasy charcoal” chalk paint and added Jet shimmer paste.
  • After it dries I highlighted this bottle using Gesso,
    (Best way to pop out the elements which  added in project).
  • Finally seal this bottle using Fixative spray.

 

 

And Taaaa-Daaaaaaa!!! There you go, we finished this beautiful piece… Give it a try, and if tried don’t forget to tag us in your projects using #Inspired By Craftyscrappers.

4 GORGEOUS CARDS BY GDT Pratima Diwan: a step-by-step tutorial.

Hi , this is  Pratima Diwan, winner of Craftyscrappers Challenge#20″Love is in the air” and today i am so happy to be on Craftyscrappers blog, to share with you all, 4 of  the cards that i created as a Guest Designer here.

A LITTLE  ABOUT ME

“I am from  Delhi. I am a qualified postgraduate engineer. I am a mother of three children and an entrepreneur . I started crafting couple of years ago in my free time. I am now a passionate crafter and hope to start my own crafting venture soon.
Frankly speaking I am not into crafting since my childhood. But some how colours have always fascinated me.I remember how I used to create handmade greeting cards, envelopes and wall decors in my childhood. I think it is in my genes. My mom has been my inspiration. She used to knit sweaters and  embroidered to add personalized touch to whatever she created.I am a self taught crafter and I am very passionate about it. I recently took few professional classes as well. My work has found home in many states of India.”

MY CRAFTING STYLE:

I do not have any favourite crafting style but I love to create different things with my personalized touch to make it different from other creations. Whenever I get an order I request my costumer to allow me to experiment with it in my own way.
Though I do not get much time to craft but you can always find time for something you love. I hardly watch T.V or hang around with friends . I choose to craft whatever time I get.

MY INSPIRATION:

As i mentioned above that my parents and my sister  have been my biggest inspiration as they have always encouraged me.My kids and my husband has always appreciated my work . When I started crafting there were very few people in India who actually motivated me. To name few I was most influenced by the work of :

Rajni Chawla
Anita Kejriwal
Hussena calcuttawala
Manisha Khandelwal
Neha Bhatt
Erum Tasneem
Meiraj Zaidi 

MY VIEWS ABOUT craftyscrappers

Craftyscrappers has versatile range of products and I have been following craftyscrappers from past few months. They have beautiful collection of stamps and stencils and the best part is that they customize the stamp and stencil size according to our needs . It’s our own “Made in India “Brand and I have always taken pride in the products made in my own country and I always prefer to encourage the entrepreneurs from my own country . When they are working hard day and night to give us quality products of international standards then it is our duty to encourage them by taking pride in whatever good  they are doing .
I love their variety in designs and the themes of stamps which include Indian festival stamps as well . Moreover craftyscrappers provides us a great platform to showcase our talent with the world.
