Turt-ally awesome!


I created a mask using the copy paper and then sponged the sea bed using Antique Linen Distress ink. Moving the mask down, I then sponged the water using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Stamped various critters and colored then using Spectrum noir markers. Stamped the sentiment on vellum.

Make up or travel pouch/bag


I made a bunch of these small bags using the tutorial at Moda Bake Shop. The tutorial is very clear and crisp and the bags turned out to be very neat and beautiful! I embellished them with hotfix rhinestones using a Bejeweller tool.

Clean and Simple sketch 312


I saw this sketch on the Clean and Simple blog and got motivated to make a card on it. The card is pretty simple:

  1. Stamped the music background in Antique linen distress ink.
  2. I colored clear rhinestones in three different colors using my spectrum noir markers.
  3. Using a scale, I marked the line 1/3rd the distance from the right edge. Then I marked the centers for each rhinestone. I did the same for the next two rows.
  4. Using the marked centers, I glued the rhinestones.
  5. Cut Happy Birthday using KNK Zing. Adhered it to the card panel using foam tape.
  6. Covered the sentiment in glossy accents.

Putting intricate images like the sentiment on foam tape requires a lot of patience! Very happy with the card, especially the rhinestones Smile

Using gel pen in KNK Zing


I made these cards by using a Sakura gel pen in the KNK zing. Since the gel pen is quite thin, I created a shim using fun foam. Taped it using scotch tape. And voila! I had a pen holder. For the first card I used silver gel pen and then added some rhinestones. The flourishes as well as the “thank you” – both are drawn using KNK Zing.


For the above card I used white gel pen with some adhesive pearls. I really like how they turned out!
