The Kraft CS from Itsy Bitsy.... for the base
I stroked the blank ink cube from versa color on the card front to form a smudged layer
on which I pressed the ink cube around unevenly for a BG
I adhered a piece of chevron printed burlap piece picked from Itsy Bitsy for a layer above that
And adhered a chipboard piece in round stamped with fiskars birthday wish & a butterfly chipboard piece from stash just above the sentiment to coordinate with the sketch.... however while placing I did not quite like the circle in the place of butterfly... hence changed places of the image & sentiment to vary a lil from the sketch....
Above the sentiment & the image I then adhered a self adhesive black bling to finish the project....

Monochromatic (From Me To You)

Hello...
Am back with the month of August & its awesome happenings on ICR...

Yes there is a lot happening this month.... Would scale them all down one by one by the end of this post... but for now to begin with as you know its regarding the projects worked in this time span.... So with the beginning of the month it is of course the ICR CoasteRide!

ICRCMON02 is up & running & here is a brief discussion on my project created for the same....

But before that lemme let u know what It is....

And am thankful for the sketch that inspired me from MFT Challenge & Inspiration....

Grey CS from Fabriano for the card base...
The layered panel is a concoction of two different CSs ... Cream from Fabriano + White picked up Itsy Bitsy....
And that white was the CS i worked over for this project.... MONOCHROMATIC.... & my favorite color from the palette of colors is YELLOW... And I did wanna focus on the hues of yellow for this project... 
I hence picked up few different shades of yellow from Itsy Bitsy... Camel bottles & tubes...
And a texture paste from Mont Marte picked up from Itsy Bitsy...
And yet another favorite to my kind of designs is CHEVRON.... No clue why I so love it... right since childhood... I remember few lovely & my favorite salwars suits which are now no clue where... distributed...worn out.... especially in the shades of black & white.... :D
So yes I picked a chevron for stencil from Itsy Bitsy & of my other favorite design DAMASK...
I first played with the different hues of yellow on the chevron stencil placed firmly on my white CS.... After which I replaced the stencil with the damask design on the CS & pasted the texture paste I had mixed with one of the hues from yellow.... 
I set it aside to dry overnight....
I wasn't satisfied as yet with the hues of yellow on my CS... I wanted more... hence I cut a piece out of my worked over panel & added another plain piece of cream CS to compliment the hues of rich yellow....
I liked the way it looked & felt satiating....
Adhered them all to the card base & pinned out the holes for the square to go with the sketch 
And completed the project with the stamped sentiment on a piece of circle over a scalloped circle
& a punched out piece of border from stash embellishing it further with some halved pearls from stash....

I wanted all the yellow to entice my eyes... hence ended it all there....

Fabriano CS in white for the base card....
Another layer of the same for the panel..... on which I die cut the shaker window....
On the card base adhered d negative for the shaker window along with a pink color DP for the BG...
I then added some pieces of foam type alongside the window & paneled the shaker window layer above it after adding some awesome sequins I so loved by Sudha from Crazy Crafter Online Craft Supplies Store.... (((Hugs)))

Shaker

On the layer that was paneled I dry embossed it for BG with....
  • Cuttlebug border embossing folder
  • Cuttlebug Moroccan Screen embossing folder
And to finish it I adhered another thin piece of DP with a baker twine above it tied into a small bow...

Beneath the shaker window I just pasted yet another piece of DP for my sentiment which was stamped with versa color ink in magenta from Close To My Heart.... 
Shaker

That is all about this project.... Hope to have u join us at ICRCMON01!

UNTIL NEXT, KEEP THE FAITH!!!
