Mermaid love

Hey Friends!
This post is for a card that I made for the my favourite things superstar contest.

So here is My card-


I am happy with the card's outcome and I feel even though I won't win, I have already won against myself. I have stretched myself to create a colored background which I had never attempted.
I didn't want to clutter the card top further so stamped the sentiment on the inside.
Here's it -


I have MFT mermazing stamp set for all the images in this card except the castle which is from MFT unicorn.
I first stamped the images on the card in antique linen distress ink. Then I masked all images. I die cut the landscapes from the MFT surf and turf dienamics and used it for masking the mask images to create a layered sand effect. I then colored the layers removing the landscapes mask one by one with distress inks.
After distress inking was Adobe, I did the sunrays. I marked the position with white prismacolor pencil and went over it with wet brush. The water reacted with distress inks giving a beautiful sunrays effect.
Then I colored all the images with zig markers and added some shading using prismacolor pencils. Finally I added some interest with while gel pen.
Hope you liked the card as much as I did.

Love,
Piyu

Rainbow card 1

Hi Friends,
I had been suffering from a loss of mojo and to boost it I took the online card classes - rainbow maker class. I haven't yet completed it but I did manage to make a couple of cards.
Here is the first card that I made.
I used distress inks on water color paper to create the rainbow background. The stamps are from Winnie and walter.

I hope liked it. Will shortly post my second card.
Love,
Piyu

A Mermaid Hello!

Hey Friends,
It's end of the month and I still have a backlog of cards to post. I usually share my WIP or cards first on my Instagram account. Do visit to take a look.

Today's card is made using the Mermazing stamp set from MFT and I am so in love with the images.

I have colored the mermaids using Zig markers. The background is made using a mix of distress and distress oxide colors.Honestly, I wasn't so impressed with the distress oxides until I used them. The
way they react with water is too good. And they are very good for stamping too.
The waves are made using ocean waves dienamics from MFT again.
The HELLO die is from winnie and walter.

Here are the images that I had colored.


Hopefully, I will convert the remaining ones in cards soon.
Love,
Piyu
