October Leading Lady Priyadarshini Deshpande aka Piyu | Take Two

Our October Leading Lady, Priyasarshini Deshpande also known as Piyu is back for her sensational second performance!  If you missed her smashing debut you must see it...CLICK HERE.   Today's duet of cards are a showcase for her glorious coloring!

Ladies and gentlemen, Piyu....

Hey Friends!
Hope you are doing great.

I am back here with my 2nd post for October. Thank you so much for your kind comments on my post last week.

Today I am sharing a couple of cards using my favorite coloring technique. i.e the no line coloring.
My first card is made with my all time favorite stamp set In Bloom: Anna's Flora.

I stamped the sunflowers and leaves in Antique linen distress ink on watercolor paper. While stamping, I used masking technique to get the flowers and leaves overlapped. Then I colored the images with  Zig markers and added details using prisma colored pencils.

For the sentiment, I cut the word celebrate using In a Word: Celebrate Cutaway - once in black and once in white card stock. I adhered the white celebrate on black with an offset to give a 3-D effect. Then I fussy cut one side of flowers and leaves and adhered it to White card stock with a foam tape. This gave a pop up effect.

Finally I added the sentiment, Washi tape and some dew drops.

Now moving on to my second card. I have used the Wish Big with Evelin T Designs stamp set.

First, I stamped the cupcake and cherries in Sugar spun distress ink and colored them with Prisma colored pencils.

I stamped the sentiment, again from the same stamp set, at the bottom of the cupcake. Then I cut the largest scalloped rectangle from the Essentials: Audrey Cutaways  and adhered the cupcake with sentiment on it.

I distressed the edges of a cardstock using cracked pistachio distress oxide ink and finally mounted the scalloped rectangle on it.

Hope you loved these cards as much as I loved creating them. I would love to hear back from you. Do leave me a comment on this post and also on the leading lady post on my blog here for a chance to win 30$ Gift card.

I will announce the winner on my blog on 4th Nov.

Have a fantastic week ahead.
