Sending lots of Happy Thoughts your way! + Q&A (Edited)

Edited: I completely forgot its Friday and day for out regular Q&A feature. Looks like I really am soaked up in work :D Added the Q&A at the end of the post :)

** I have a BIG Giveaway HERE

I will make this post a quickie because I have lots of pending tasks in my To Do list and I also wanna try to make Walnut Banana Muffins. I hope I get them right the first time :)

Today's card is based on the sketch at Lily pad cards Sketch Challenge, using my all time favorite technique of emboss resist which is again for the Lily Pad Cards Resist Challenge. I picked the colors from current Hero Arts Challenge and also attempted a window card :) And since it has no pattern papers, I am entering this to Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#68

 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Hero Arts(Speckled Ornaments, Live life), WPlus9(Magical moments); ink: Rangers Distress Ink(Walnut Stain, Barn Door, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed), Versamark Embossing ink; Rangers Clear Embossing Powder

If you have any questions, please let me know and I will make sure I answer them all.


Q1 How did u sprinkle that color?Is it water color on THIS card?                Bhavana
A1 I use acrylic paint, little diluted with water. Then I just drop some of this diluted acrylic paint using my brush where ever needed. You can also use mists with a paint brush for the same effect.

Q2 Did you ink the rose with yellow pigment ink on THIS card?                       Snehal
A2 No, I didn't. I had these two tone flowers as is it. But you can always add color to white flowers using mists or pigment inks.

Q3 Can you tell me how to video?                                  Anita
A3 Did I tell you I am just learning? I am really bad at videos and more than making them, I actually hate editing them. I just use my web camera to shoot the video and then edit it using Windows Movie Maker. Nothing special :)

Q4 How to make the flower in THIS card?                          Snehal

A4 Its a simple gathered flowers with two layers. You can do it in minutes :) I will do a tutorial as soon as I get time.

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.

I know I w…

One year back on 16th of May, we got engaged and I wanted to gift him something special and different and that is when I stumbled upon Monicka Wright's blog and decided to case her wonderful note card. I took the colors from Smidapaper May Color Challenge, polka dot theme from Lawnscaping Challenge. And I am also playing along Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#56 - Get Sticky.

Supplies: papers: Echo Park Papers(For the Record);embellishment: Element stickers from Echo Park Springtime collection, Little Girl, For the Record, Walk in the Park, Twine from the twinery(charcoal)

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…

Gond Painting !!

Wishing you all a very happy holi !! Its a colorful spring festival celebrated here in India and I wish that it brings lots of happiness and good things in life for all of you!

And on this colorful occasion, I thought I'd share something different and something close to my heart with you all. I have been crafting right from when I was a little kid and I have always loved to explore different forms of art and craft one of which being the traditional folk art of India.

India has a very rich culture when it comes to art and off late I have been hooked to giving all different forms of folk art a try. After I tried my hands at Madhubani last year which is a folk art from the state of Bihar, I am now hooked to another tribal art form called Gond from the states of Central India (Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh)

I love the way these Gond Paintings look. They are simple and yet so detailed. Its all about filling in the everyday life motifs with dots, dashes and lines.
