Mid-Month Inspiration April

Hi Friends,

I am here to share another inspiration for our April Challenge: "Use Animals + Give Them Wings". i.e. you need to use an animal that does not originally have wings and add wings to them.

I have created a fridge magnet for this challenge using a digital stamp for mid-month inspiration.

TTC: Use Animal + Wings - Fridge Magnet

I colored a coaster using Ranger Dylusion Paints. Thereafter I colored the cat digi (from Opal Manor) using water-color markers and fussy cut the image. The wings and wand were hand-drawn. Once the paint was dry on the coasted, I distressed the edges using Ranger Black Archival Ink and stamped the quote. I adhered the digi and finished the piece by adding clay stars. Finally, I added magnets at the back to convert it into a Fridge Magnet.

I hope you are all inspired by this cute magnet to take part in our challenge.

The last date for participation is 30th April. To know more about the rules, click here.

Mid Month Inspiration TTC#9 | Tejal

Hello folks,
Welcome to my 2nd post of the month, the mid month inspiration! If you haven't already checked out the previous posts, please do! And do check out the amazing inspirations from my team members and our Guest Designer this month..Check out the main challenge post here for our March theme - Be Grateful/Thankful + Use all colors of the rainbow! 

I can never have enough thank you cards on hand, and just for that reason, I loved the theme. There is always someone, something to be thankful for! Soo, as a bonus, I do have a second card which I made along with this, on my blog!

The process is very simple...
  • I have stenciled distress oxides through a MFT sunrays stencil, 
  • then die cut the main rainbow panel, with Gina Marie rounded rectangle dies.
  • Die cut the word Awesome, die from Lil Inkers Design. Stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Lil Inkers and glued it on the panel.
  • Stamped, copic colored and fussy cut the butterfly from SSS stamp, Beautiful day. 
  • Glued the rainbow panel on a A2 card. 
  • The butterfly has loads of shimmer from Spectrum noir shimmer pens..but can't capture in photo! 
So hope you do drop by my blog to check out the other Rainbow card I have for you!!

Thank you for visiting our blog, taking part and encouraging us...This card is dedicated to all of you, our readers, participants and cheerleaders!

Mid Month Inspiration #TTC 9

Hi Everyone,

Hoping that the change in weather is keeping your spirits high and that you all are well prepared for the summer onset which is arriving soon !!

Summers bring in mixed feelings....while the weather can be really unpleasant (specially with the humidity issue in Mumbai), the summer clothing and summer colours are soothing to our sensory nerves...and keeping that in mind we have our March challenge Be Thankful/ Grafteful + Use all colors of Rainbow!

Do check out our initial inspirations and challenge details in the above link.

As the mid month inspiration I have a very simple CAS card ...sometimes less is more and thats what this card emphasises!!!

I have taken a black card base and layered it with a script pattern paper from DCWV. Sprinkled it with red and green dots with a help of a paint brush and layered in the feather stamped image coloured in the rainbow colours.

The image has been stacked up with multiple layers of diet cuts to give it dimension. Post that I have taken a black strip and hand written the sentiment 'Thanks' with my white signo uniball pen and stuck it at the middle of the raised feather image.

I hope you like the inspiration and join us for the ongoing March Challenge.

Happy Crafting
