I promise...

...this is the last time I will use that flower at least for the this month :D

So, I told you in my last post that I wanted to play along LilyPad Cards Sketch Challenge and when I saw the Make It Monday#29-Free Style Copic coloring video, I immediately knew I wanted to give that coloring technique a try. This is also my second entry for Mel's Layering Challenge at Yvonne's Blog. Oh and, Did you see Lucy's Rainbow Challenge? I am all in for it :D


 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: PTI(Friends 'till the end);ink: Momento(Tuxedo Black); Coloring Medium: Faber Castell Markers

So I was in a up-cycling mood and found this sheet of corrugated cardboard from some packaging. I think it adds so much texture while layered on this card.  I also tried curving my sentiment for the first time and love how it looks. Here's how I interpreted the sketch: flower represents the oval and the leaves represent the small circles around and for the corners, I rolled them up :)

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.

Added a little hand-stitching along the edges, embellished each tag with lot of elementary stickers from different Echo Park Collection and had the most fun writing those 10 things about DH. It made me fell so ble…

A year in review 2016 + Giveaway!

Hello,

As we step into the new year, I wanted to take a moment and reflect upon this past year which has been mostly amazing for me. 2016 was tremendous for me in terms of both professional and personal life. 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.


This photo of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco has so many lovely memories from our big family vacation this year. It was fun converting it into a watercolor piece. Also this …
