Friendship Card


Vanakkam(greetings in Tamil) Friends,

I'm back with another friendship card. This is my second attempt with stamping as I usually have hand drawn images in my card,recently I won some stamps in a giveaway hosted by my friend Ishani. So I could play with the stamps and images she provided along with the prize. Let's go for the show off,











The images butterfly and flower are from Mudra craft stamps. I did the stamping of butterfly twice and make use of the left portion alone to get my butterfly in sideway. I love how it creates Beautiful dimension as if it is in motion, like about to land on the flower 😊. I also added details to my butterfly using white gelly roll pen. 

I  coloured the images using heated crayon technique as i got inspired from my friend Ishani 's recent butterfly card and I followed the video link she mentioned in her post. I have to thank the talented crafter Loll thompson (stamping with Loll) too as Ishani is doing a series of  CASEing her cards, only then I came to know about LOLL ( I'm new to this crafting community and stamping world so I'm not aware of many talented artists out here). Thanks so much LOLL for being a great inspiration for us 😊.

I don't have gelatos or any branded crayons, yet I could make use of my daughter's stash Of camlin wax crayons which worked well for me. I don't have heat tool so I used a tea light candle for the process. 

My monochrome butterfly, strawberry blushed flower, and distress mottled lawn BG are inspired from photo inspiration @ uniko challenge and the sentiment from time-out challenge.

I finished the card using my Hand written Sentiment and with some water droplets rhinestones. Below are some pictures while my card is in process, for your reference.

  7. Wow, I don't know what to say....that monarch butterfly is incredible!! How amazing your colouring skills are, the butterfly looks so real. I've been raising some of these butterflies lately which has been a lot of fun. Your flower and background are so soft which makes the butterfly pop even more. An amazing cad and I'm so glad you shared it with us at TIME OUT!
