Introducing Marvelous Mehndi and Simply said II

Hello all, today we are continuing with our introduction of the new stamps for the release. You might have seen the sneak peeks of these 2 sets already.

I have used only the Marvelous Mehndi set here today.
I chose the big mandala stamp, and wanted to focus it. I used gold gel pen, and markers to color it. Added a black jewel at the center, and many gold jewels along the circle on the design. I hope I haven't overloaded the jewels here today ;) It looks ok to my eyes though. I used gold card stock to line the front panel to add to the base.

A close up at the jewels, which have blended pretty well with the colors.

For my second card, I thought of adding the stamps like we do freehand henna/mehndi in India. It is been many years that I did a freehand henna.
I used the stamped in a freehand flowing manner, and colored using only 3 colors, I wanted a lot of orange to mimic the real mehndi on hands.
A gold strip  and gold twine to finish of the card, along with  a few jewels.

The second card has some sewing on it. I used the leaves for sewing in back stitches. The flowers is a 2 step stamp. I colored the stamps again with markers. For the dots, I aded jewels, I love the look of it, looks like dew drops to me! The front is added to a matching textured green base. again, very simple design, as I want the stamps to be the main focus here today.

Geometric background

Hey all, a quick post, this card is sitting there for many days to be posted, finally doing it today.

I have used the freebies from winnie&walter for the background here. Printed it on a water color paper and colored with zigs, ans added wink of stella for shimmer.
The robot and other stamps and sentiments are from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the robot on a water color paper in grey ink and used zigs to color, and fussy cut to add to the card.
The front panel is added to a bluish textured card base. A simple card.

Acetete with Paper Smooches

Happy Monday all, the weekend went by too quick. I am still exploring acetate, you know me, when I pick up a technique, I just use it till I have explored it many possible ways.
I don't think, I have explored enough with acetate yet, so you might see many more cards.

This card is made with partial acetate and partial card base for the front and back. Actually, I used part of acetate for the coffee shaker I made the other day. I am not in mood for shakers at the moment, and thought of using it this way.
For the back, I inked a panel using distress inks to get the autumnal tone, and it goes bit further up tha the front, as I want it as my background for the buildings and birds on the front.
I did partial die cut of the buildings die from Paper Smooches, for the front, and added it, I also decided to add a "friend" die cut also from Paper Smooches The birds are from the Summer lovin set from, and the sentiment is also from the same set, but I stamped only the 2 words from the sentiment.
A few jewels to finish off.
I am quite satisfied with my card here, and I hope you like it too.

Guest Designer - AAA Cards #74

Hey all, I am so happy to be guest designing for AAA cards this fortnight.

 The challenge this week id Masking.


I have used a very simple masking here today. I simply masked half of my front panel, and sponged the other panel in autumnal shades, using distress inks, and then added some splatters.
I used the tree from paper Smooches - gently seasoned, and stamped in the middle, the side where it is white, I chose few leaves from the same set and stamped in shades of green and orange. The sentiment is also from Paper Smooches.
I added the panel, to one corner from the bottom, leaving the top.
