Ethnic Diwali Stenciling cards!

Hello, crafty friends!
Today I am on Expressions stamps, this is my DT post!

Diwali is a most famous festival of lights celebrated in India. Each of the Hindu people started planning before a month to celebrate this festival.  Invite their friends and family members and wishes them! So I created an ethnic and festive Diwali Card!

1st Card

For this card, I applied several colors using my stencil.
Die cut the sentiment hello out of Stick It Adhesive sheet and one from white foam sheet. Applied crystal glass clear diamond dust on it. Placed the word with a silver thread and few sequins and some glossy accent drops.

Supply list: 
Cardstock: Heavy white CS, white foam sheet
Stencil: Daisy delight from Expressions craft stamps
Altenew inks: Warm sunshine, evergreen, frayed leaf, sea glass and desert night
Die: Hello word from Sizzix You & Me set
Finger daubers
Ken Oliver- Stick It Adhesive sheet
Other supplies: Crystal glass clear Diamond dust; glossy accents; B&W Classic cup sequins; double shade silver thread

I have combined the two different stencils to create my second card!

My card base is in bright yellow. I took the daisy floral stencil and cover the half of the front card using carved pumpkin ink. I created the design as with Ombre effect. Then I took Candied apple ink and stencil the design again overlapping it, love the result!

Die cut the borders out of bright red and whisper white CS. Now I die cut one small and one big circle to make my own stencil. I covered the white border layer with my circle die sheet and put the daisy floral stencil and applied the ink (Keep the small circle between the daisy floral stencil to keep the circle white). Now I wanted to highlight a Diya only. So I covered the white border sheet again and applied ink through the diya stencil. Now distress the edges applied candied apple ink.

Die cut celebrate word and now applied both the layers at my card base. Time to embellish it, highlighted it with few gems and yellow glitter glue dots.

Hoping I inspired you to make some Diwali card preparations to celebrate this festive occasion!

Stand Tall

Hello friends!

 I am back again with another beautiful tag- something I don't often make! And really love the results! 
The new stamp sets are too cute with such pun sentiments, I just love them! Here what I created:

I started with a tag die using textured CS two times. Out of the one tag, I created a window. On the other tag, I created a sunset scene using zig watercolor brush markers. Love the textures after watercoloring background!

On a watercolor CS I stamped the flamingo image and a tiny flower in jet black archival ink, watercolored and fussy cut them. For showing the grass I used Pineapple image leaves:), applied light green shade to the leaves only and stamped it on the same textured sheet, fussy cut and watercolored them. Added some sequins.
Added a sentiment flag and finished it with some twine and bells in it!

Hello friends!
Happy Wednesday!

Today I have a card to share with you all!

               For starting the card, I die cut a double running stitched rectangle out of textured CS. All the images were stamped using ZIG brushes directly and watercolored,  fussy cut them. See the beautiful texture of white CS!

Stamped the Hello sunshine sentiment from the same set in Jet black ink and applied clear embossing powder on it. Heat embossed it, so shiny!
Then glued a dotted PP on the base card panel, added a dotted grass strip too and glued a printed vellum stripe along the dotted strip. 
Now adhered the textured white sheet at the top using pop dots. Created the whole scene and added a double shade twine at the top! For more beauty added some tiny sequins and a golden glittered tape!

Wall Decor Art Piece!

Hello, everyone!
Happy October!

This is a month of the festive season and Diwali is my most favorite festival, so there is no question about what I love to create with the Mixed Media projects! 

You can surprise your guests and visitor this Diwali with your own handmade creation, no need to buy from the market now!

Today I want to show you my new MM project on coming festive occasion! And this month challenge is "Lights and Celebrations" at Rainbow Craftykari. This is my GDT post for them!

And here it goes.............!!!!!!

I converted a piece of plywood into a magical wall decor art. I coated it with Plaster of Paris with the textured look.

Gave a new life to Lord Ganesha.

Happy with the results using Fevicryl Pearl colors, Terracotta and Old gold Inka Gold!

Now time to create a background scene for Lord Ganesha.
Using air dry clay and a mould I made some embellishments to decorate and let it dry them for a full day.

Now given a coat of gesso to all of them. Don't worry about some cracks because they are very delicate, it will hide with some embellishments:) Fixed metal holders to hang the decor piece.

Applied lots of fevicol and sealant to paste them all.

Die cut lots of different flowers and leaves out of Iris paper, perfect for flower making.

Soak the flowers and leaves in the water bowl for a minute and inked them using distress inks.

Shaped them using golf groove tool and embossing pad as shown in the pic, perfect for textures and details.

Now time to create the background. Misted the piece with different color splashes. Firstly I started with turquoise color mist bottle at all 4 corners with the height of 4 or 4.5" gap. Then misted with midnight blue, not on the middle part because I wanted the Ganesha to highlighted in sunbursts color effect! Then misted with dirty pink near the pillars. After that misted with chalk ultramarine and golden canary. You will easily achieve the same results as shown in the pic.

Now rubbed all the white part using old gold and turquoise Inka gold to highlight the detailing work as shown in the pic. And applied a little bit at the surface and chippies too!

Here are some close-ups for the detailing work:

Rub some Inka gold on the metal charm OM word. Paste it on the tea holder and embellished it with some gemstones.

Now embellished the whole piece with my own handmade flowers and few rhinestones, gems. See the details in close-ups clearly!

And covered the backside with the corrugated sheet attached a heart-shaped border at the bottom.

Here is the finished project and ready to hang on the wall. I am really happy that this time I will decorate my Pooja place with my own wall decor piece!!! 😊

Isn't it gorgeous at all!!!
