ICR Dhin Chak Dhin n for Kavi!

Hey,

The heat has taken a a toll on me. Am falling sick every 3rd day here.... yes am new to Delhi heat :( So i got back to card making to distract myself. what would be better than a challenge card.


At ICR we have a Photo Challenge running and the key theme is to make it all blingy!! My inspiration was the bright hues and i picked yellow as the base and yes the handmade flowers as embellishment.The glitter strip were made using a tape runner and MS glitters (another handmade effort here for a background). I totally love it! I also used my new Heat Gun from my Crafting Queen Store to fix it permanently at speed 1. Thats the good part... its has 2 speed controls...talk bout multi taskers ;) Bad news is a month back my Marvy Ulcida heat gun died!! I don't know why and how but am glad i finally have a heat gun with Indian power settings!!

Ok back to my card. I added some purple to tone down all the bling embossed with with my CB and patted with with Distress Ink to enhance the design.. The Flowers are handmade and repeatedly embossed with clear embossing powder to add the shine.

Heres my card :) Sorry about the poor photo quality. The card does look brighter in reality

Supplies: El Erre Fabriano, Embossed sheet in Cuttele bug,
Handmade spiral flowers, Old Cloth Tag for sentiment, Inkadinkado Stamps

A Closer look at the embossed flowers made with patterned papers.

Stamped Watermark Pad and Embossed with Black Embossing Powder

I am also entering this card for Kavi's Guest Challenge. I loved the flowers taught by Anita and they are on my to do list for now :)

 Cheers!
