I love playing with watercolors and when it comes to stamps, flowers are my favorite. For today's card I picked up the beautiful sunflower image from  "Sunflower Stem Cling Stamp Set" from the Classic Sunflower collection. I am in love with the way it turned out :)

I stamped the images on Canson Natural White Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper 300 gsm* with Old Paper Distress Ink. Then colored the images using Camel Student Water Color Tube* and Sakura Koi Water Brush*. I used the wet on wet watercolor technique and painted the flower and the background. I flicked some black watercolor to add a bit of splatter. Next I stamped the sentiment using All Occasion Sentiments Cling Stamp Set using Archival black ink and mounted the panel on a Hero Arts White Note card base using foam adhesive*.

I love how it turned out and I hope you like it too.

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)

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.
