Recycled Gifts - Greeting Cards









I used pencil sharpenings to make these greeting cards. I used colour pencils sharpening and painted them with sketchpens to add further effect. 

I have used calligraphy for writing messages and tried to create an insiprational series. 

What do you think about this new recycle idea??

Parchment Greeting Cards


Sharing some of my parchment cards. I used some floral designs on spare parchment scraps. I painted the flowers with parchment ink and embossed all the design.
 Then I perforated the outline and cutout the design. Made small cards with some plain card stock and attached the floral design with double sided duct tape. 


 
 Following two cards are made from Martha Ospina's design book. I applied some lace to give a personal touch to the candles card. 




This is perfect baby announcement card. I painted the card and did small embroidery through the four punch holes to add a personal touch. 
See the closeup pictures for further details.

Thread Painting - Greeting Cards


Today I am sharing one of my old unique cards which me and my father made in school summer holidays. I liked them so much that I have never shared it with anyone. 

Materials: 
Card sheet, threads (various sizes), water paints and some sketch pens 
Process:
  1. Take two same size card sheet.
  2. Take any length embroidery threads and dip threads in various inks or paints
  3. Spread the threads on one card in asymmetrical style. Press the second card on it .
  4. Pull the threads while pressing the two cards together. 
  5. This creates the symmetrical lines on both the cards.
  6. Add few details with sketch pens / sharpie to create various forms or shapes from these lines. 
I did the fun part of making imprints from the coloured threads whereas my dad did the creative part of making some shapes out of those lines.

Embroidered Sarees - Festival Special







I


Dear Readers, 

I was never a fan of wearing Saree's and always thought embroidered Saree to be too tacky and shiny. But when I saw these Sarees I just had to buy them. I love the superior quality of the fine embroidery and also the fact that its suttle and does not have too much bling. 

The mustard yellow Saree has fine Kashmiri hand embroidery which is unique to every Saree.

Ink Painting - Wall Decor


I got inspired by Japanese ink art on canvas to make my own version. I saw a small documentary about japanese artist creating japanese designs with indigo ink on a canvas and coating it with varnish spray. 

So I decided to try the same idea, but used sharpie pen instead of ink. I liked the way the project turned out.


Also it was a quick craft project. 

Did you liked this idea? 

Happy crafting!
