Oh..put a stop to your dirty minds people..
(read it till the end ...and you'd know the name of my candy winner)
A bike ..is every Man's dream or so I have observed.
I have seen their hormones go topsy turvy when they see another similar specimen of manhood zoom past them on a handsome bike..it teases them more than a guy with a beautiful girl. ;)
I understood it the day I saw a Harley Davidson parked in Khan Market..I skipped a heartbeat ...for all I know, I now understand their delirious ecstasy and their perpetual yearning . ;)
It was hence befitting for me to make a bike card for Aditya.. :P
So what if a hedgehog is riding it ... :P
its still a bike ..its still a RED bike ..and ...
its a cruiser bike !! :D :D
I would have left the card at that ...but then I thought ..whats a card without embellishments?
Some psychotic flower fixation I have acquired .. :P
Thank God ..I decided upon these simple mountain valley Florettes instead of the usual shimmery ones.. its not everyday we get to make manly cards .. ( I sense a Gender bias here)
Obviously the image is hand-drawn. The obvious part being ..that I don't own many stamps and this one in particular :P
Coloured the image with my Aquarells (Please excuse the inept coloring, shading was never a competent attribute of creativity)..
To give the bike a more raised texture ..I coated the entire area with glossy accents and guess what ..?
Yes..the persistent calamitous clouds hovered and I put my ruler on top of the still wet glossy accent .. :D
I am generally in damage control mode all through crafting ..as a proactive measure !
Among the many flaws ..you may also notice that the fuel emissions of the bike look like water splats ... :P
The bike seems to be slinging mud instead of fuming... *grin*enough !
Let me come straight to the winner of my candy
According to the votes ..the WINNER is ..Dr. Sonia (with her extremely cute and creative Daughter Prisha)
Congratulations and Celebrations ....lalalalaaaaala..
Please contact me Doc ! :)
So I also have few queries and I need all your help
Question 1 : Of all the Indian brands available..which glue is by far the best bet in quilling, card making, scrapbooking ? Consider this..I am still sticking things with fevicol and have not been brave enough to try any other glue ..things fall off in the long run with fevicol and I am extremely unhappy. I made a scrapbook and used fevicol to stick designer paper on chipboard pages..the pages are slowly coming off .. :(
Question 2: Which paper should I use for my focal images? I mean I use cartridge sheet pads for water-coloring and markers but with repeated coloring and stroking ..the paper starts coming off in layers ..help !! I found Fabriano's water colour sheets but I didn't buy them for they were costly and I want to invest only after discussing it with you all.
Question 3: Does anyone have a home-made recipe ( with products easily available in India) for glimmer mists ? :P I know I sound crazy but ..insanity is my means to creative exploration ..
Please please please..answer these as it would help me a LOT !!
hmm..that is all for now ..
*As for the various flower tutorials ..I would come up with them soon*
Right now ..academic commitments score a little more .. :S
