Rakhi Cards..finally :)

So finally I am getting around posting the Rakhi cards I made for my 2 sweet and caring brothers :D (Don't know where all that love is coming from because we fight most of the time..and that too over nothing :D Maybe I am just getting into the festival feeling..LOL)

So I wanted to add some traditional Indian touch for these cards and decided to pick some bright colors, block prints and rhinestones to start with.

Close up of the coloring details and rhinestones

And here is another one, I just changed the colors and kept the design same.

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: WPlus9(Magical Moments), Lawn Fawn(Smitty's ABC); ink:Jenni Bowlin(Brown Sugar);  Embellishments: Rhinestones(local)

I picked up the block design from the Magical Moments set by WPlus9 and stamped it 4 times in brown ink to create the focal image. The sentiment has been constructed using Smitty's ABC by Lawn Fawn. I think they turned out pretty, What do you think?

Hope you liked 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 …
