Brand new challenge blog and candy for their first 100 followers!

http://letsinkitup.blogspot.com/  Go check them out!


Hi dearies!This card is inspired by my newest friend Sasya's beautiful cards..though it's not as half as pretty as hers..(I get lost for hours on her blog) ...and I specially love her butterflies...
The sentiment is hand-written in Hindi, it  is spelt 'mitr' and it means 'friend' and I was inspired to do so after I saw this beautiful hand written verse in Hindi on Spardha's lovely canvas.Have a nice day !

Clean n Simple

Hi ! Have been struggling with this card for almost three days now.I wanted to try out the white inkpad I had bought long ago from Hobby Ideas and a set of clear stamps. But I just couldn't get it to look nice..so finally exasperated with my attempts, I just put it together and decided to post it anyway ..but I must admit that I am not quite happy with it..and to make it worse all the glue marks are showing too :-( ..Some days are just bad creativity wise.anyways ...Hope you guys have a great weekend..

Crackle paint and decoupage on waste bottle

I love to recycle!!!So here's another one..on an olive oil bottle .
I used Hobby Ideas crackling medium.Here's how:
1)Apply a coat of blue acrylic color
2)Let it dry completely.
3)Apply a coat of crackling medium on top of the blue and let it dry too.
4)Apply white fevicryl acrylic color  when the medium is toroughly dry.
Then I cut decoupage  images from the vintage moth (freebies) and pasted with modge-podge.If you like decoupage you can visit these lovely  blogs Sandra's blog and Maria's blog .Cheers!

Burnt Sienna design paper

I made this card for pileiton challenge-Do something fun with your paper.So made this Burnt Sienna(no pun intended) by  literally burning paper over a gas stove!
Well actually what I did was, rubbed a halved lime over a background design stamp from Hobby Ideas and stamped it onto A4 white sheet and let it dry for a few minutes.Then I held the paper over the gas stove burner at a distance of 8 inches and let the paper burn a little.The result was this beautiful vintage looking sheet of paper.I got this idea from Jak heath's blog but it was  a long time ago and I don't remember the exact post.The background design paper is a printout of a freebie from her blog too!
I combined a few of the following challenges:
1) Practicalscrappers - Border Punches and decorative edge scissors
2)corrosivechallengesbyjanet -Lot's of flowers
3)cardpatterns -sketch
4)pileitonchallenge - do something fun with paper
