Checkered Florals !!

Hi...Sharing a quick post as i am running short with the time & i really wanted to play along with the The Twisted Challenge & their link can be close anytime so here is my card -- (without any editing )








Please excuse bad pics as I clicked all in night n much hurry...!! but i realised one thing that capturing Red colour with mobile is quite typical...anyways i managed to catch the slightly visible checkered pattern which is much much noticeable in real . Also i tried editing these pics but when i edit n increased the brightness/ exposure, the pattern becomes completely vanished...so i didn't edited any pic!!






I colored the flower images in checks pattern using Prisma color Pencils . hope you can see that. Special Thanks to Pooja for sharing the tips to create n color the checkered pattern ❤

These days i am just trying my hands on no-line water coloring and this is so addictive i swear but just due to time constrains i cant do much but no worries.. " Less is More " . So here is my card inspired by Nina Marie's this tutorial. Mine is not as perfect as her but i tried hard ...n would love to hear from you what u think :)

So here is my card -










Did lots of masking & watercolored the florals using Zig brush pens . Then added grey shading for more depth !! Also added water droplets for some interest :)

Birthday Card - No Line Coloring !!

Hi Friends... 
Today i am sharing my first attempt with No-Line watercoloring ...i was always attracted with no line watercoloring but never tried it but finally decided to give it a try....though its not too good but yes i am quite happy with the final results. 

I followed the video tutorial of very talented Kristina Werner.

here is my card --


The idea of using cupcake is came from Deepti's this Card (Below) !! Yes i am getting back to crafting thru such challenges and i love Deepti's Work a lot so thought to case her which was required too in the Stamplorations  B'day Bash challenge !!



I stamped the cute Koala bear from Peek-a-boo Designs, India & Cupcake is from Technique Tuesday Stamps . Birthday Greeting is from Inspired by Stamping .

Used Masking technique to let the koala sit on the top of cupcake and then watercolored with Zig Brush Pens (Need More control  n practice 😉 )

Hope you like my attempt and pls suggest me where i need to improve more :)

Hugs -
