Hi Friends! I am Sheetal Kumar. I am so happy to be a guesting 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.
I am back with my second design team project and this time I made an A7 (5” by 7”) card using another fabulous flower image “Pretty Little Tulips”. I also used the sentiment “Grandma” from the same stamp set. I wanted to create a vintage rusty-ish looking vase (images from the same stamp set) sitting pretty on a table top against a teal wall. ALL THE VINTAGE FEELS!!!
I couldn’t resist using these tulips for my card. This large floral stamp is full of possibilities. It comes with two kinds of vases and elegant sentiments for the wonderful women in our lives.
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 A7- Side folding.
Using Microsoft Word, choose how you want the image for your card. Here I worked in a blank rectangular shape to fit on my A7 size card and I placed the vase on the bottom left side of the rectangle and the flowers to fit on it in the best possible way. I did make both the images more transparent to get a no line effect. Then I added the sentiment toward the right side next to the vase in black. Print when happy with the setting.
Color the images with your desired medium. I used copic markers here.I used a combination of pinks, reds and yellows for the tulips.
And for the vase I used warm greys and some oranges and yellows to add the rusty look.
Cut out the rectangle you have the card front ready to go.
