IQCG #39 - India

August being the month which we all Indians rejoice. Our day of independence just around the corner. Keeping that in mind, we at IQCG have the theme 'India' for our challenge this month.

I really took some time to come up with something for this theme and finally ended up making a peacock which is our national bird and also something that I had not tried so far.


Waiting to see all your wonderful entries for this amazing cue... I am sure we will get to see some amazing stuff as usual... Link up your project here

IQCG# 38 - Mixed Media - Textures and Shine

Time for the monthly challenge at the IQCG blog and this time we are looking for something mixed media with lots of textures and shine.

My DT inspiration is here




I altered a perfume bottle and thoroughly enjoyed the process and was absolutely thrilled with the outcome. I started of with pasting tissue paper with some gel medium. Once that was dried I glued the chipboard and the glued elements(flowers and leaves). The next step was applying black gesso and once that dried I coloured the flowers and leaves and the chipboard with some metallic acrylic paint.
Sprayed some mica sprays  and spread some gold wax for an added effect. Finished it off with some microbeads.

Materials used :
Gel medium
Tissue paper
Black gesso
Metallique wax
Mica sprays
Micro beads
Acrylic paint

#74 - Fresh Cut Florals

At the start of the year I promised myself to craft more but due to some really urgent and important personal issues couldn't do that for the past few months. Now, I am trying to get back to more of crafting so hopefully I post regularly.

This week I thought of playing with my most favorite floral stamp set - WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals. Made a card using this stamp set, the background is done using the Tim Holtz Dots Fade stencil and the sentiment is die-cut using Simon Says Stamps 'Happy' die.



Thanks!!!

IQCG #37 - Blue with a splash

"To a thirsty man, a drop of water is worth more than a sack of gold"

To me, the word 'splash' will always get childhood memories when I played in the rain, jumped in puddles and splashed water all over. That's what my son does today :-)

But water is getting scarce today that we have save every drop of it and that what I have tried to portray in my entry here.


Waiting to see all your wonderful entries for this amazing cue... I am sure we will get to see some amazing stuff as usual... Link up your project here... And have a month full of amazing monsoon...



Thank you!!
