Champion Guest Designer : Ashwini Rao

Hello! Today we are so happy to have our 6th Champion, Ashwini joining us all the way from India! She is here to share a gorgeous card that was inspired by our current challenge. Take it away, Ashwini!


Hello! I am Ashwini, over the moon to be here today as a guest designer! I live in Bangalore, India, with my family. I have always loved crafting, but stamping and card making are something I discovered just over 3 years ago, got completely hooked, and started with my blog shortly after. I don't exactly stick to one style - preferring to try my hand at anything and everything possible! Do stop over my blog, it would make me really happy! :)

My card was inspired by the diagonal row from Challenge 10 Badge - Chevron, Ombre and Vellum. I used Altenew Persian Motifs to stamp on some vellum and heat embossed it using Wow! copper embossing powder. I then colored the backside with Copics and fussy cut them, just outside the embossed lines. For the background, I used Heidi Swapp Chevron Stencil and blended in Mustard Seed distress ink to create an ombre effect. I then trimmed this panel and used Paper Trey Ink Stitching Lines to add some fancy edges. After mounting this panel on the card base, I adhered the flowers using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and then added the sentiment from Neat & Tangled Everyday Labels, which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

I hope you enjoyed my card and will be inspired to join the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge! Thank you so much Ka and the design team for having me as your guest! I completely enjoyed it!

Have a great day!
