Celebrate heartily

Hi all

         I am getting comfortable to make CAS cards after seeing so many from several other great blogs.  Discovering a new way of using it daily and I absolutely love my distress inks.

      I made this card for CASual Fridays blog challenge .

Handmade the heart banner without any dies . Using the masking technique colored with distress inks. I was amazed by the result once the masking tape was removed.   

The heart banner is not too perfect still I adore this :p 
This is the heart banner I made for this card. Hope you like it .

Welcome card

Second post in a day!!!! These blog challenges really inspire me to do this.  Made this card for Lulupu's challenge with banner. As I said earlier , I again tried a card with distressed background. It is not easy for me to get the perfect look... I need more and more practice.

The blue color lattice was created with normal square nestabilities since I don't have the lattice die. Though it was time consuming I like the way it look.
Happy that I found a way to use that extra small square die. Then added swirls , flowers, leaves and butterfly.The brick effect was  made with foam pad and scale. At last made this special heart banner which I liked the most. I found the card to be empty at the center so took this calendar part from other project and added to this card.

Birthday card

It is really fun to use distress inks and Am playing with it almost everyday. Discovering many techniques like masking , brayering and embossing over it.
This card is one example of my try . Actually i came across a similar card in pinterest . Having that as model I made some changes and finally created this one.


The circles are not very smooth as they are hand cut. Then distressed with pink, yellow and red inks. Again placed a white card stock underneath and sponged it with distress inks and added dimension with foam tape. Last step is to stamp,color,cut and stick butterflies with foam tape.

Back again !!!!

Its been a long gap since I posted something in my blog. I had done quite a number of cards and took photographs but I  was so so lazy to write , edit and publish and missed several blog challenges. Am here today to participate in CASology blog challenge with cue word WOOD.
             I had several ideas with wood and ended up with wooden horse toy as I had seen someone selling it in the roadside recently. Most of us would have played with this toy when we were young.
            Hope this matches the cue word given in the challenge .

Hand drawn the horse and colored it with watercolor pencils. I need some good practice on watercolor pencils.  

Entering the challenge cue word - wood. 
Used wooden horse toy image.
