Guest Designer at Try it on Tuesday "Crowning Glory" Challenge

Hello everyone,

I am thrilled to announce my guest designer appearance at Try It On Tuesday Challenge blog for their "Crowning Glory" challenge!!! The theme is absolutely fantastic:Add a crown to your project. I truly hope you'll join the fun and this is what I made for this occasion:


I created canvas-like base for my card out of cardboard, scrunched up tissue paper, gesso and texture paste applied through the Finnabair stencil. The crown is my focal point and is made with several layers of heavy cardstock glued together to give it extra sturdiness. The crown is a Cricut Sophisticated Cartridge cutout covered with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.


I added bunch of handmade flowers to my arrangement. Flowers were made out of tissue paper, lately my go to material when it comes to making flowers, it just gives them such soft and airy look, love it, hope you do to :)


...and a shabby bow hand-died with Dusty Concord Distress Ink...

I would like to thank Avril for inviting me to join this beautiful challenge as a Guest Designer, it is my great honor to be part of it with such talented Design Team!!! Please stop by and check out the DT inspiration.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

  13. HOLY FRICKADOODLES!! I'm not sure I can explain in words how much I love this card Samra!! It's one of the most romantic, soft, elegant, dreamy cards I've seen in some time!! Those amazing tissue flowers of yours have become one of my favourite things ever, how wonderfully delicate and airy they are! Your monochromatic ivories with the touch of purple is completely stunning and the way you arched the glittery crown is just pure brilliance!! PINNED WITH CONVICTION!! You are such a pro-star and an inspiration! What an honour to have you as our guest designer for this challenge! See you on the dance floor my friend :)
