Monochromatic Cards

I haven't been able to do any crafting lately but since my blog is fairly new, everything I've ever made has not been showcased here. So, I thought, instead of just waiting for the one fine day i do get around to crafting something new, I'll just show you my older projects in the mean time. I made these two monochromatic cards for a color challenge a few weeks ago. Before then, I didn't even know such a style existed. I am so elementary at these things. *sigh*

The card you see on top was an all turquoise card with a bit of yellow and a black mat on it. The ribbon wasn't really as loud as it seems in the scanned image. I paper pieced the dresses which I drew and then added embroidery thread, a star shaped gem and glitter to make them a little fancier. I also used my fancey scissors on the long gown.

The other card was an only purple card. I used different shades of purple for it. I kept the card pretty simple but used an interesting layout. Instead of using an image, I used a prima flower with a purple star for the centre. The same stars have been used on top and at the bottom as well. The purple matting u see is actually a frame i got from a friend. I aligned it with the white square to make it look as if it was matted.

Hope you like my cards. Will be back tomorrow with more old projects.

Happy crafting,

Toodles and Binks

Toodles and Binks is a stamp manufacturing company. They are hosting a giveaway. The prize has not been revealed yet but it seems to be really big. You'll have to head over to their blog to see how you can win.

I still don't know how to add those small links in my posts where the whole link doesn't show and only a word or two do. So, till I get enlightened in that respect, you'll just see whole links in my posts. So, here is the link to their blog-

Don't worry, the candy will stay on top so you will be able to see it easily when u get there.

Card for a Challenge

I finally got around to crafting a little today. Only managed to make one card though. Its a clean and simple card. I really liked the image and wanted it to take centre stage so thats why i kept it this way. The image was watercolored and then outlined using a bleck gel pen to make it a little sharper.

Really sorry for the poor scan. The square shaped gems are actually pink. I liked the "clipped" corner under the image where I snipped a corner of the dark pink paper underneath. i had wanted to add a little bling there but nothing seemed to look right so left it that way at the end.

I'm hoping I can get a new USB cable for the camera soon so I won't have to scan the cards and show u. It'll also help me share more 3-D projects too. The old USB cable seems to have disappeared somewhere and after having conducted a 7 hour search for it, I gave up. Lets hope I'm able to get a new one without any problems.

Happy Crafting!

Art/ Share Blog Candy

ok, Here is something interesting I found on Libby's blog a couple days ago and I think it would be nice to give it a go.

The first 5 people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice! For you! Could be a card I am really pleased with, an altered object or something else altogether! My choice! But this offer has some restrictions and limitations:
1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be made with you in mind, so you won't get something I already made unless I think it suits you to a T.
3. It'll be done sometime this year.
4. There is a catch - you must offer this same blog candy on your blog! Let me know you're in, then re-post this on your blog and offer something you make - your choice - to the first 5 people who respond to your post. Add my name to the #1 slot on your list - I am your first participant. When you create your giveaway, you will become the first participant on the lists for the people who participate with you. Got it? :-)
Soooo... who wants to play??? :-)

I have the following ladies playing-
1. Betty -
2. Libby-
3. Ann Nabors
4. Rebecca
5. Yael -

**********I have received responses from 5 ladies. This art share is now closed and I will not accept any more responses. However, I might do this again sometime so stay tuned!**********

Happy Crafting,

The Beginning

I have created this blog to share my crafting experiences and art work. Once, I get the ropes of running a blog, you will see more posts by me. I'll also try to fix things up a bit so my blog doesn't seem so "barren". I will also post links to blog candies and great sites too.
