 Envelopes using Alcohol markers on foil:

Tags using Alcohol markers and stencil,
smooching technique and stippling technique...

Step by step instructions for alcohol markers on foil...(tags I have done as I had lot of inks on my felt which I have used on yupo papers with some more alcohol solution..and later used that for making tags.)..
Step-1: first I took a cardstock in envelope size and covered with aluminium foil tape..if you don't have tape than you can use kitchen foil also.. keep shine part on top..and cover the base of CS with foil.

 Step-2: then using embossing folder run through dream cut machine..so you will get nice embossing effect on foil...
 Step-3: now scribble few choices of alcohol markers on embossed foil surface .( See pic)
 Step-4: now taking alcohol solution on a felt dauber spread the alcohol ink..and cover the whole envelope surface....
 Here you can see so bright, beautiful and shiny base...here if you want to see more of silver you can rub with a rag and remove extra colors from raise parts..so you can see nice colors with silver foil on raise parts.
 Then using same felt which was full of alcohol ink ..and my craft mat was also got covered with alcohol inks from previous technique..so I dropped few drop off alcohol solution and using yupo paper did smooching technique..so this way I have utilized whatever colours on my matt...got such beautiful base...
 Step-5: I made three foil base for envelopes and did Coloring with alcohol markers.

Here you can see all 3 base..and the colour  I have used in each picture.
As I wanted to highlight alcohol foil background.. I used minimal decoration as itself with bright colors they were looking very pretty.
 Used circle diecut at the base with foam tape ,used Little Birdie flowers and chipboard sentiment.
 Here I have used silver cardstock and flowers n chipboard sentiment
 In this tag base is gold cardstock, pink part is from smooching technique....here for that center mandala design or Rangoli design I have used Little birdie stencil.. through which I have trace the design with gold alcohol marker and filled each part with light and dark shade of alcohol markers..used circle stitch die to cut the circle..and used happy diwali stamped sentiment from my Stash..

Tag#2: I have used smooching technique print..on which I did die cutting using dream cut machine.. highlighted with pearls n die cut sentiment
 Tag#3-same way here tag base is from smooching technique and one more white cs tag at the back ... I decorated using white diec butterfly.. highlighted with black pearl drop,wooden star emblishment and Diwali sentiment.

Beach theme projects with stone texture paste

Hello crafty friends! Iam DT Daksha on the blog today with my two projects with the theme of this month..if you don't know then let me tell you that this month's challenge theme is... project using Little Birdie stone texture paste...and here are my two projects..

I really enjoyed working with this stone texture paste..it gives very pretty grainy and sandy effect...
Earlier I have done similar kind of project and that time I have used sand but it was quite messy n didn't get such a nice grainy effect...using this stone texture paste is so easy just apply it in required place and done.
Frankly using this stone texture paste was so much fun that I couldn't stop myself trying another project.. infact my mind is full with two three more similar theme project..but had to stop myself as my stone texture paste almost got finish with these two projects πŸ˜›πŸ˜

Project #1: Ocean theme display photo frame


Step by step instructions for photo frame:
#1- first I removed backing paper from the acrylic photo frame and used white paper so that I can have a clear view.
#2- then I have applied stone texture paste at the bottom part. When it was still wet at that time only I have stuck shells using gel medium.
#3- filled inbetween gaps with tiny shells, texture stones,mini pellets, pearls and let it dry overnight.

#4-next day I was so happy with the sand effect that I thought to add one more step to my project.
#5- I took little birdie resin and hardener and mixing blue ,white Colors gave blue ocean and white waves look...rest of the frame part I have used clear mixture so that when I put any picture it is visible through.
#6- on blue resin mixture area I have sprinkled little white sand and glitter and let it dry overnight...all the time I was excited to see  the end result with a photo..as I have already decided to use one😁

Here is my display photo frame with a photo of my son in Puri beach..goes so perfect with this frame

Project# 2 : Ocean theme mixed media bottle

Step by step instructions for ocean them mixed media bottle:

#1-first I cleaned and dried a glass bottle.
#2-then gave a coat of heavy gel medium and let it dried properly.
#3- once it dried properly I gave a layer of chalk paints using sponge only( no brush).
#4 - when my color layer dried I gave a layer of decoupage glue to secure my color layer.
#5- then I took a fish net and cut it in required size and stuck on the bottle using heavy gel medium.
#6- then applied Little Birdie stone texture paste all around the net area only.
#7- now I wanted to stuck shells on net..but with gel medium I have to hold each shells..so I have used air dry clay..which I have filled inside the hollow base or stuck at the flat base shells n then using little gel medium stucked on required placed.
#8- inbetween gaps I have used tiny shells, texture stone, craft mini pellets and pearls.

#9- to give white waves look I applied white crackle paste on top and bottom part of the bottle.
#10-gave white color highlights on few places and brushed gold paint on top neck part.
#11- then gave a coat of spray varnish..to fix all tiny things.
#12- Finally decorated top part of bottle with natural jute strings and metal charms.
