I Zalak A Mandal today over Madras Bazaar Blog. Hope you are having a great week. I would like to thank Manisha (amazing personality, and owner of Madras Bazaar) for inviting me to be a Guest Designer.

A little about myself, my native is Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Presently staying in Chennai, Tamil Nadu since past 5 years. I am a wife to an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer and a mother to a beautiful daughter. I started crafting with Quilling, then I have spread my wings into card-making, stamping, water-coloring, decoupaging and many more. I am known for my thoughtfully design, quality and the finishing in my handmade cards, scrapbook albums, mixed media, shadow boxes, organizers. Even though it is turning from my passion to profession, I have same enthusiasm and zeal to learn and innovate more and more through crafting and designing. 

I have total Three Projects to share with you all today, So let’s get started.

1. Christmas Card

DSC02463DSC02465DSC02466DSC02467

Brief about Card:

  • The Card measures 5×7 inches, I have used watercolor CS for background.
  • I have started spraying Pearl Ink Spray – Pacific Blue and randomly applied with wide paint brush.
  • While It was drying, I have cut some hills with border dies from white CS and write sentiment using black brush pens.
  • Once the background is dried, I splattered some white acrylic paint using paint brush to make background to look a like winter snow.
  • Then I have started assembling my card, first I have taken blue side folding CS and adhered watercolor background.
  • Then on background, I have adhered hill, lamp post and reindeer which is heat embossed with white embossing powder.
  • To finish, I have make some stars using white gel pen.

To be continue……. Part 2

So, that’s all from me today. I hope you all liked my project and share some love in a comment box.

Thank you for Stopping by.

Guest Design Post (Part 2): Altered Perfume Bottle By Preeti Datta

Hi friends 🙂

Preeti D. (aka Dutt Preety) here. This is my second Guest Design Post for Madras Bazaar. In case, you’d like to check out Part 1, please click HERE. I’ve used the Madras Bazaar Pearl Ink Sprays here. These are alcohol based, so for blending the colors, you will need the blending solution. These dry fast and give a shimmery look to the project.

I’ve created a Mixed Media Altered Perfume Bottle for you today. I had a lot of fun making it, so let’s get started.

Altered Perfume Bottle

Here are a few photos of the project:

  3. Applied white crackle paste to the bottle and let it air dry so as to get the desired crackle effect
  4. Added art stones at some places using 3D matte gel & brushed on some white gesso on the charms and art stones
  5. Once everything was dry, applied color using 3 of the Pearl Ink spraysCharcoal Black, Vibrant Green & Shock Blue

Artist Trading Cards or ATCs are miniature pieces of art. These are 2.5 by 3.5 inches in size and they are swapped between artists & crafters. These can be created in a set around a certain theme. For example, in the set of ATCs I have made, there are 3 in it and they are all made using the same colors and style. I wanted these to be simple, flat & easy to re-create.

Process:
