Hi Friends! I am Sheetal Kumar. I am so happy to be a guest designer for Varada Sharma this month as I get to share my creativity through this platform. I am based in Canada, Toronto. I am an editor by profession and currently work at a publishing house. Card making is my passion. My favorite thing about crafting is coloring; whether with inks, markers, pencils or watercolors. I love using all mediums. My crafting style is a mix of shabby chic and mixed media. You can find me on Instagram here.
For my first design team project, I made an A2 card using the gorgeous digital image Climbing Rose Bouquet.
I also used the sentiment that comes with this stamp on my card. My inspiration for this project were the flower stamps. I knew the layout I wanted with the florals when I looked at the roses. I wanted to make a flowy version of roses on my card with all kinds of pastel pinks and purples. DREAMY right !!
If you are a floral lover this stamp is for you. The sentiments with this set are perfect for any occasion.
Solid color cardstock for base.
Copic X Pressit cardstock (Or paper to go with the medium you choose to color with )
Copic markers (Or coloring medium of your choice)
Start with getting the card base ready. Size A2- Side folding.
Using Microsoft Word, choose how you want the image for your card. Here I worked in a rectangular shape to fit on my A2 size card. I did make the flower images more transparent to get a no line affect.I also used the sentiment and placed it in the middle. Print when happy with the setting.
Trim the rectangle which will be the front of the card.
Color the images with your desired medium. I used copic markers here.
I also added a light sweep of pink copic marker in the backdrop to sort of ground the image. It’s totally optional.
Then add some splatters with a basic black paint and to finish it use any embellishments from your stash. I chose to use some purple sequins.
And there is the finished card.
