Handmade eggshell heart.

Hi everyone!!
Today´s card is for this week´s CASE study challenge# 92.


I made this heart using egg shells.I kept the eggshells in soap water for some 7 to 8  hours and then separated the membrane from the shells.I sprayed some antibacterial liquid and then they were ready to use.I tried few shapes on the cardboard and pasted these shells and then I painted this with marble colours.I have used Red,Magenta and Gold colours....though gold colour is not so visible in the photo.


Square frame around the heart is handdrawn.
I am entering this card to the Gallery Idol Challenge by Paper Magazine. 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Washi Tape!!

Hello everyone,

The latest Embellish challenge is to create a card , layout or altered item using washi tape and the colour palette showed in the inspirational photo.
Just two weeks back I had bought some washi tapes from the local craft store and luckily they turned out almost the same colours shown in the photo....so i didnt want to miss this challenge.

This is my first card with Washi tapes.





Thanks for stopping by!!
