Paper Cutting by Hand

I have seen many artists who do paper cutting and make wonders. Then I came across Charlie’s work and I was smitten. I wanted to try it my self. Here is what I came up with.

What do you guys say? I know there’s a lot of room for improvement but I am happy with the first cut and my fingers are sore :lol: :lol:

You take care and keep crafting

Tent card – pink gallore

What do you say about this utterly girlish card. Isn’t the quilled hanging basket super cute?

It was fun to make this card with a lot of different techniques used – dry embossing, heat embossing, distressing, quilling, punching etc. Loved the way it has turned out :-)

Hope you like it too.

Keep crafting and stay safe.

Miniature series – 2

As you have seen earlier, I have been bitten by miniature bug :-D

So I have added a couple of other things to my miniature collection, this time its a small rug and a mini floral basket. Do let me know what do you think about it.

Now have to make new things to add to this collection. Will show once I make something new.

Have fun, be safe and keep crafting…

Miniature series -1

I stumbled upon Kris’ awesome blog recently and if I say I was amazed, it will be an under statement of the year. Not that I had never made miniatures earlier but they were not this small and definitely not this detailed.

I wanted to try something new and I had all the time in the weekend (Cub and hubby being on their respective tours!! ;) ).

See what I came up with;

This being my first try I could not take many pictures in the making…

This is how it looked once I assembled the parts... have a lot of work still to do

This is how it looked all painted and with the seat cusion

You can see I have painted the back too :D

It was definitely fun to make this and was a little tough to maneuver with such a small scale but fun nonetheless. The size of this stool chair is 8 cm in height and 3 cm in diameter.

Once I was done with it my itch to make another miniature was stronger. So then I took up a little bigger miniature with more work to do. I completely forgot to take pictures in the working stage but see what I came up with…

Backless sofa/couch with two plush cushions… completely handmade :D

Miniature Backless Couch... It took some 8 hours from start to finish :)

I am happy with the results… do leave some comments on how to do better.

I am sure to come up with more miniatures in the future. It is really fun :) Thank you Kris for opening this new world to me. :)

P.S. I am entering my backless sofa/couch for Colour Conceptions “Anything but cards” challenge. Wish me luck guys :)

Some Cards with photo inks

It was the time when my mojo was at its lowest. I HAD to jazz myself up. My eyes fell on photo inks I was hoarding for a few months now. Without thinking too much I gathered my inks and spritz bottles and decided to just go for some fun.

Here are a few shots of my experiments.

Photo inks made into spray inks

Loved the water colour effect…

White card stock turned to colourful palatte

Some stamping

And the cards…

Experimenting still going on. Will be back with more cards soon… :-)  :-)
