Paper Quilling Clown / Joker

Hello firends, 
My latest project, a paper quilled Joker/ clown, where I spend about 18-20 hours. In the beginning I had only planned to make a Joker, but once it was made , I decided to make the composition with all the stuff around it. The maximum time went in making the box, (about 4 hours) where I wanted to give a cane look and had to do weaving of 3mm strips. In the end I made a cylinder out of 2 (A4) size acitate sheets to cover the whole project

Hope you enjoy it. Feel free to leave your comments and suggestions..

Embellishments by Altered Craft

Hello Friends,
Welcome to my blog, today I am going to share my views on these lovely embellishments sent to me by Altered Craft.  I have been crafting from 8 years and have used so many different kind of embellishments to make the projects look attractive. Some good, some not so good. Having right material for the right job is the key that leads you to a successful layout.

The Altered Craft embellishments are good quality and the finish is very nice, and after trying out different color mediums, I realized that almost all Acrylic,  Permanent Inks and Alcohol colors go very well with these.. some of the experiments I am finally sharing with you all… hoping you will like it..

All the supplies are listed below..

A Stone Paper weight

Project 1:
I colored the stone with layers of Ranger Alcohol inks, (I used, Caramel, Latte and Ginger) once I got the right color, I moved to coloring the the Embellishment, I used the alcohol blending solution so that the base can be made little lighter. And finally ended up getting the desired finish. In the end I add some micro beads and stickles to finish it up..Giving it a rustic look in the end..

Project 2:
I used Stickles to color the frame and giving it a softer look..Finishing it up with my baby's pic..

Project 3:
Here I used Copic Colors to make the flowers and leaf. Since Copic colors are alcohol based it nicely covered the surface and where i needed lighter tone I just washed it off with alcohol solution. In the end added the chain .. and here I have a lovely Valentine's Day gift ready..
Project 4:
In this I made a 'For You' card. I simply useda little shimmer on top of it, sadly the picture is not clear but the shine is very nice and soft..
