Guest Designing today. :D

Hey heyyy..

How are you all??
I'm back again with another card to share with you all. Too soon, right? Thanks to Artful Crafting's wonderful wonderful guest designing offer. :D
I won the Challenge 8, and got the chance to post as a GDT. *happy dance* :D

This is what I came up with.

This card is so close to my heart. Mainly because I have used all my favorite techniques/products on this card. I have been planning to try one bold on black card for long. So glad i got the chance.
I heat embossed the background stamp on the black cardstock, then applied gesso randomly in the centre portion. And then the fun part: I used Mica powder mixed in gesso to add colors. Obviously the colors were light and I had to add red acrylic color later. But the golden and yellow showing through are sooooo pretty to resist. hehe.

Then I added some white thread behind my resin frame(new found love *wink*). For the main flower, this particular thing is a BEAUTY. Its by the Altenew, (Thanks to a friend for ordering this for me). I colored it using distress inks, fussy cut the flower and leaves and stacked them one over another.

Main idea behind this card is to spread LOVE. I made this for someone very very dear to me, and I have been looking for a chance to thank her. For listening to me, and for making me feel better when the time was tough.
Thats it, folks.
Dont forget to check out the new challenge going on. its about Love.
Hope this post will inspire you. Dont forget to create, and spread happiness. Oh and mainly, DONT FORGET TO TAKE PART IN THE CHALLENGE. ;)
Much love.
Allah Hafiz.

  5. I love the techniques and the color combinations. I am new to mica powders, so this idea of mixing them with gesso is an interesting concept. Will surely give it a try. :)
