Soar the sky!!!

it is the kite season here in Sri Lanka… since its holidays from school most of the kids are in the play grounds or at the beach, soaring the kites high… what a sight…

so today's tag is based on Inspiration Journal, August Monthly Challenge -  Go Fly a Kite!! the kites were cut out foam sheets then distressed them with distress inks, crackled with rock candy after letting it dry applied distress stains over… then i added a tail with ribbon and stones…

the background is first distressed with pine needle, then stamped then dusted with heirloom gold perfect pearls… the final touch, spritz and flick…

here is a close up!!!

 i'm entering this to both Inspiration Journal "Go fly a Kite" and Simon says stamp and show "No rules"!!!

My Favorite Techniques

OMG, where did the week go, i can't believe i missed the last SSS Challenge, which was extremely stupid on my part as i had just few moments to spend, yet i spent that watching the TV… the week flew by without even telling me, so i got stuck on things that are unnecessary, talk about great time management!!!

this week is a great challenge, as its all about showing off your favorite technique...but i'm stuck with many, and had trouble figuring out what to do…since there are many ways to present this, i'm not gonna choose just one… but many… so i created this card with 5 techniques i love!!!

first up, the wings: the large wing in the way back is crackle paint, i have inked it with distress ink to give it more depth (or shadows)…
the medium wing is gold embossing powder, with a distress inked background - i love how perfectly embossing ink work, giving the perfect touch… 
the small wing is all about one of my old techniques, chunky glitter (i used this many times in the past… so glad i could use again now)

the heart is textured with gesso and then colored it by playing with alcohol inks… and put a little touch of gold glitter for glimmer… don't you just love the effects of it…

one more, don't forget the background, this one is another favorite,  tim's spritz and flick from compendium of curiosities 2 

the wording "you are heavenly" came out of the label maker, but i didn't just wanted to keep it black as it didn't match the whole style of the card, so i added caramel alcohol ink and grudged it up with sanding paper, so i should say, by accident i learned a new one, which will become a favorite, i'm sure!!!

when i photographed this card, i couldn't believe, the antiquated look… it looks so cool!!! anyways, here goes!!
