Catchy Design's : Let's Get Pinspired # 1

Friday, 10 July 2015

Hello Dear Friends!

My friend Deepti Stephens of Catchy Design is hosting a brand new challenge on her blog today which is all about getting inspired from some of the most amazing images found on the Pinterest and she invited me to be a guest designer for this month's challenge- Let's get Pinspired # 1. Thank you so much Deepti for this opportunity and I'm thrilled to be a GD at your blog. :)

What makes it even more exciting is the fact that it's being sponsored by Papericious , a Delhi-based company which comes up with exquisite patterned papers and the winner of this challenge would be receiving the gorgeous 12 by 12 Vintage Rosewood Paper pad. Tempting, isn't it? :)

Here's how I got Pinspired :--

There's so much to get inspired from in the picture. I loved the black and white background, the pop of colours- pink, yellow, blue , green, the worded background, the word 'Joy', etc.
I started by stamping my own background over the base of an A2 sized card. I wanted to use the word 'Joy' and some other words which would compliment each other . So I chose to stamp 'joy', 'hope', 'journey', 'thankful' from Heidi Swapp 'Journey' stamp set. I just love how interesting those fonts look. :)

Then I used this coloured vellum which was a result of  the coloured vellum technique I learnt in Clean and simple online class-4.A very simple and effective technique- just mix some distress ink of your choice with isopropyl alcohol (commonly known as rubbing alcohol) or nail polish remover and paint it over your piece of vellum. It dries super fast and the results look beautiful. The benefit of using rubbing alcohol over water is that water takes a long time to dry and it also leads to excessive warping of the vellum.

I drew and cut out those three feathers from a piece of white card stock, coloured them with memento inks, embossed the edges in enchanted gold EP (which could not be clearly seen in the picture) and arranged them over the base.

Finally tied a twine over the base to bind the whole design together and added the sentiment from mama elephant stamp set.

That's all from my side today. Please head over to Catchy Designs blog and check out the wonderful inspiration by Deepti Stephens and Pooja. I'm sure you'll love them.

Hope you join this absolutely fun challenge.  See you there :)
