Altered Box

Hi Friends!

Today's post is about an Altered Box, originally a Mobile package box which i was religiously hoarding for more than 4 years now. It's a cute white 6" box. Made this project a week back and gifted to my Dear friend for her birthday. She was thrilled to see this!!




Now will see the process of the project!

  • Took the box with lid, and white gessoed it totally.
  • Stenciled the base with Prima grid stencil with Prima light paste.
  • Sprinkled LSG sweet treats magicals on the stenciled portion and spritzed water to see the magicals burst colors.
  • Then its layered in Cheesecloth on all four inner sides and on the base centrally.
  • Doily, paper straws, Roses, resins and and other embellishments are added with few random partial stampings around the image.
  • Mini and macro art stones are added for little extra textures.
  • Timholtz chitchat stickers are added to kraft cs and added near the image.
  • A pink adhesive ribbon is added to the outside portion of the lid.
  • And on top of the lid, Prima Princess pp is added.
  • This finishes off my Project.
Some angled and close up shots for you!






Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!

Watercolored Roses

Hiya Friends!

How you all doing!

Days are lovely here as we enjoy super foggy mornings and chill weather at UAE.

2 months back i won Altenew FB giveaway and bought Bold and Blossom set, which reached my home few days back.

Yay!!! You got me right!

Watercolored those Roses using noline coloring technique, which am still in learning the nuances of it.




Have chosen colors from the January altenew Challenge



Am so in love with the colors here in the graphic.


  • To create my card, took a watercolor cardstock, stamped outline Roses and Leaves, from Bold and Blossom set using Masking technique with a 3rd generation stamping using Archival ink.
  • Colored using noline coloring technique with Zigclean color brush pens.
  • Then fussy cut and kept ready to mount on a stenciled base card.
  • Prima min art stones are sprinkled generously and to add bit more texture added a honeycomb chipboard and a cheesecloth, to which fussy cut florals are added.
  • Left it as Sentiment-less card for now :)     


Hope you like this card :)

Thanks for stopping by and soon to catch up with next project :)

Hi Friends!!

This is my last DT inspiration at MHKDesigns. I had a great year working with the Awesome digisets and Wonderful DT team. Thanks much for this opportunity, Mynn. I learnt a lot from my fellow DTs and this team.

I was asked to share my fave project. As i couldn't pull out just one project out of all my MHKD DT inspirations, i made a collage using my fave digisets.

I absolutely enjoyed working with these Digi sets.
