Stamping wonders with Q-tip

Hello Friends ,
 Like I have been mentioning I am trying new stuffs these days & In the list its Stamping today ;) 
I have tried Stamping earlier here  but wasn't very confident going ahead with it & seeing such great talents around I was scared to try too... 

But like this year I have decided I need to try n I shall so here is my experiments :)

I have tried a new Technique here called the Q tip technique or art!
Q-Tip art is just that…a treat for the soul. It is also a fantastic alternative to expensive materials. Even if you can;t fit craft supplies into your budget, chances are you have a cotton swab around you can use.
This is the simplest design to make with a Q-tip  (ear buds) . Just load your q-tip with paint, push it straight down on the paper, and twist up. It will look like this. (Not even kidding…I bought really expensive invitations once that had a background just like this. :)) 

Things that went in -

I have used my newly bought stamps, embossing folder, brads , flowers n bakers twine here!

 I have embossed the cardstock with hearts from itsybitsy!

brads from diaso (my singapore vacation shopping )

 Clear Acrylic Stamps - French Market & bakers twine  from "The Craft shop " .

The second card here I made was inspired from a picture we clicked of my Mom at the vacation, We were in malaysia during the chinese new year celebrations

the decor there was soo lovely & inspiring !

here is my creation inspired by this picture

Here I have embossed n coloured the flowers with stamping ink using ear buds!
 it was fun colouring ;) 
I loved this technique of using ear buds to colour..The art is called Q-tip art !

Thanks for dropping in
