Under Construction

I'm working on a quite last minute project. But it's a very good elated feeling stamping and stamping with all my heart. Will update once it's done.

Meanwhile, I've been thinking I should like to combine this blog with my primary blog. Should I? Well, I thought that since I do have art projects (some I've shared here) aside from greeting cards I might as well dump it all into one space. Otherwise it'll be kind of confusing and contrary of the blog title. Plus it'll be easier to maintain only one blog! Ha ha. Wee~

Barakallah to Atun..

The wedding card was specifically ordered in blue. I tried to find the perfect baby blue colour card but unfortunately to no avail. Instead I only got this card which is kind of tiffany blue. I wasn't so keen with the colour at first. But the more I work on the design, the more I fell in love with this colour. In fact, tiffany blue is fast becoming the chosen theme for weddings nowadays. They're rare, unique and there's something romantic about it. Have a look at the wedding photos of this girl. I absolutely adore all the deco until the itsy bitsy details. So gorgeous! I just recently found out that she's a wedding planner as well. Ah, no wonder everything looks perfect.

A garland of roses, never fails to delight me. I used Versafine in onyx black to stamp the collage behind and I must say that I am absolutely satisfied with this brand. I've been looking for the best black ink for me in the market and I must have read hundreds of review from around the world. So basically I chose Versafine because it won't bleed hence it's suitable for coloring inside the images even with watercolour. It captures every fine details on the stamp and it's very clear. I absolutely want vivid black. Some ink pad just didn't produce the 'clearest' black. Also it's oil-based hence it's permanent. Yet it won't leave stain on my stamps. It's really easy to wash out.

Love is a many splendour things.

Simply cupcakes

I had a last minute order for a birthday card and a wedding card. Both for the same person. This girl is getting married a day before her birthday. Nice birthday present. Hehe.

Stamped cupcakes. I meant to leave it black and white at first because it looks so classic. But then, colouring it would be fun too and so I did.

Tiered foam for the 3D effect.

A peek on the inside. I know the card is really simple but that's what I like about it. The stark contrast of white card with colourful cupcakes. Sometimes the beauty lies in the simplicity :)

I'll post the wedding card later on. My lunch is waiting. Ciao.

Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity
~ John Ruskin

Like I said before, I cannot get enough of these roses. Haha. I love the way it adds dimension to the cards and I love that it looks good in almost every colour. So here's the paper roses again. This time, I used a crinkle cut scissors instead. The roses look cool eh? ;)

What's great is the new rubber stamp set that I bought at a local bookstore. There's various patterns in one set and it's so cheap! I've noticed that more art supplies are becoming available at that bookstore nowadays. I guess the art of scrapping and crafting is starting to grow and spread here in our country. Hence the increasing demand for such things but still, the stores in KL has much more to offer.

My friend wanted a bigger card to fit in the box she'd already bought. But I'm not so fond of larger card because it tend to be flabby and difficult to construct. Then I thought why not I just put together two cards with the back one aligned a few cm forward. I got to make it the size she wanted and it's more sturdy and stable.

So it's actually double layered. Isn't it great that there's more space to write inside? Those who always seem couldn't say enough would really appreciate this kind of card. Hehe. By the way, it's for her niece who's sitting for SPM soon.

Sometimes luck is what we wish for in life :)
