Hi all, today am posting a layout created based on the sketch given  by  beyond grey challenges. I chose the title of my layout as " cute". Here are some pics. 

Here is the sketch given:

I started off by colouring the canvas sheet using distress ink. Then used  pieces of pattern paper to create layers. The image is printed from net. The title is handcut from black cardboard sheet.The flowers are handmade and the bottle caps are used for stamping. 

Happy Crafting!!

Hello Friends, Hope you all are doing good!! Today am posting a card made for a special person - my mom. Yes its a mother's day card.  The Current theme of lulupu challenge is to make feminine cards. And since its eve of mother's day I wanted to make a different yet cute card carrying the theme of both. My mom loves different handbags so I thought why not make a handbag card for her.  I googled upon and found a simpler version of making handbag card and here are some pics.

I decided to stick with the monochromatic colour scheme for this card ( only white and violet). So used differen shades purple and violet for background and embellishments. 

Inside the card I wrote the quote using black marker and pasted a handmade daisy.

I decorated the card using border punches , flowers , butterflies and pearls. 


Take a canvas paper or chart paper of required size of your bag. Fold it into half. Cut it into a shape of the handbag. Here I cut it into a trapezoidal shape. 

For making the flap of the bag it is better to use corrugated sheet. Since I din't have proper paints for covering the corrugated sheet I used a white sheet for the flap. Draw designs on the corrugated sheet and cut them. Cut the handle from a piece of cardboard and paste it at the back. 

Initially cut all the pieces, cover them with pattern paper and then glue everything together. 

Dedicating this card to my mother and mother- in - law. 

Happy mother's day to all the mothers!!
