Layering Fun


Back with yet another quickie card.. Made this card on request and is very heavily layered by my standards. I am not a layering person and find it strange to keep piling things on my card and making it heavier LOL.

This was a kind of unplanned card and I just went with the flow of layering and adding things here and there. I really want to say hats off to people who rock at layering. I wonder how and truly salute you.. Since I got back to crafting, I have been making a serious effort of trying to play along with a few challenges and just enjoy the fun I get from crafting.

So here are the pics.. I have completely forgotten to take pics for the inside and it is now gone to the recipient.. :D.. Did some heat embossing and used my MFT chevron die for the inside, just to pretty it up a little bit. Like I said, layering and lots of layering.

Loved assembling this card. Once it started rolling I had a ball. A special mention to Nupur Priya.. Your image coloring a tremendous inspiration. I am now actually practicing coloring like you ( miles and miles to go). She does the most awesome coloring ever and her work is a treat to the eyes. 

This is a 6"x6" card which I have just layered. I had the option of trying some fold but I seem to be enjoying this phase of just creating normal cards and using the hoarded PPs.. LOL

Supplies used:-
cardstock=> locally purchased, fabriano elle erre and brustro
PP is something I picked up from a local exhibition ( the same is available with reena gupta of craftegenous)
black archival ink and vintage photo distress ink
Floral ovals, tattered florals and cherry lynn flourish die
MS doily lace edge punch and 3-in-1 butterfly punch
Pearls and staedler water color pencils

Entering this for the following challenges:-
Kraftzone=>Whimsy wee stamped cards
4 crafty chicks=> flowers

Thanks for dropping by.. Hope to see you soon...
