oh please don't take me wrong....Kissing is a technique I learned recently :D for the New Hero Arts Challenge for Feburary. I used the sketch over at Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#41.

 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Hero Arts (CL401-Speckled Ornaments), Skipping Stones; ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black, Lady Bug); Embellishments: Heart felt piece from Creative Impression, Beads, White Satin Ribbon, pearl pins, crocheted flower from stash

The most interesting part of participating in challenges is that we get to step out of our comfort zone and  learn something new and that is what happened this time. I learned this fascinating technique of kissing the stamps. You can check out the article by Shari Carroll.

It would have been easier if I had one of those large background stamps by HA but since I didn't I had to find a way. I stamped the different stamps from the speckled ornament set to create the background using the kissing technique and then embellished it till I was satisfied (that's a rare possibility :) and I still think I would have done something more or something less). I liked the end result anyhow.

I 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.
