Post#174 – Distress Inks,Stencils+Water Background Cards

I have followed a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire to create backgrounds for all these cards….I got quite excited by such a good result and went ahead and made a couple more cards using this technique…
Here is the link for the tutorial – Easy Distress Ink Backgrounds by Jennifer McGuire
It’s an excellent video so there is no need for me to write down much details….
I did however mix a bit of twinkling H2O watercolour in my water spritzer for a shiny look as I do not have any other kind of pre-bottled shimmer spritzer etc….
The cards are only lightly decorated as the background is the hero in all these cards….
Hope you liked these cards…
Do you have a favourite??Let me know…

Post#116 Star Box

Now this is a box that I wanted to make because of the lovely star shape at the top of the box…I had the link for the tutorial bookmarked for more than a year now but never got around to making it coz I thought it was a kind of a tricky box…I couldn’t have been more wrong….and once you see the tutorial you will think the same…
I chose a dark eggplant coloured paper with a marbled effect print to create the box…..once the box was ready,I carefully tied the ribbon around it…this box doesn’t close fully so you have to be careful about what you put inside of it…
On the front of the box I adhered the die cut word ‘For You’ using silver paper and a star as well…
Hope you liked this box and will try it out…
