Challenge Inspiration and more

Hello there,

Ria here on this side. A bright morning to everyone reading this post. We have a very interesting challenge this month , i.e. Mudra Challenge #13 - Mirror Stamping

The possibilities are many with this technique.

I tried to make a holiday card for this season as many of my friends outside India have already started making christmas and holiday cards.

Card 1:

  • I first took a white Cardstock (Neenah avalanche white), masked it on four sides with a masking tape and blended distress inks on it (broken china and mermaid lagoon).
  • Then I sprinkled water droplets on to it and peeled off the masking tapes.
  • I took a solid stamp from Christmas Decors and stamped it with Archival Ink.
  • Then I stamped the same image on to an acetate sheet and stamped the acetate on the CS.
  • To make it crisp and flawless, I made up with black pen.
  • I ended it up with a handwritten Joy with metallic marker, some Mudra sequins and Nuvo Crystal dew drops.

Card 2 :

  • I first blended distress ink (wilted violet) on to a white cardstock.
  • Then I added a pink tinted embossing paste on to it through Mandala Stencil and let it dry completely.
  • The sentiment is embossed in white from Stay Magical.

Card 3:

  • I first stamped the images from Eggstacy, colored and fussy cut it.
  • I prepared the background with Zig clean real markers.
  • I took a circular die cut and cut a sentiment die through it. 
  • The sentiment is from the same set.
