Another Christmas card!!

Hello everybody!! I have another Christmas card to share today with you which I created for the Hero Arts November Challenge of using an inking technique. It also qualifies for FTTC93, and Polly Craft Challenge70 - Glittery X'mas.

I used the liquid pearls on canvas paper to create the shimmery background and then while the background was still wet, stamped the Hero Arts Christmas tree for the subtle effect. I then went crazy doing hand stitching on the branches of the tree :D

Here is a closer look at the tree

Ain't it pretty? The orange card stock is also stamped with tiny stars in orange pigment ink though it isn't visible in the picture.

Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching

Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

It made me fell so ble…

Yes, there were moments and events that I would not never like to experience again but today I just wanted to focus on the good and happy.

So today I am going to highlight my favourite projects and moments throughout this year. I also have a giveaway for you guys as a thank you for always being so supportive and appreciative. You always motivate me to do better and more.

I started year 2016 with this close-to-my-heart watercolor piece. This artwork is special because this was the first of the many! I fell in love with using stamps to build watercolor scenes and kept making them throughout the year.
