Okay, so I am a teeny tiny bit obsessed with watercolors and Heartfelt Creations stamps are so perfect. This time 

I stamped the image using Lullaby Darlings PreCut Set on Canson Natural White Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper 300 gsm* with Old Paper Distress Ink. I masked the image first using Daler & Rowney Masking fluid and used the wet on wet watercolor technique to build the background. I am using Camel Student Water Color Tube* and Sakura Koi Water Brush*. Once the background was dry, I peeled off the masking fluid and painted the image. I also added some tree branches free hand to add more interest in the background. Next I stamped the sentiment using Chick Retreat Cling Stamp Set using Archival black ink and mounted the panel on a blue Note card base using foam adhesive*. I also added a decorative die cut from the Cut Mat Create 2A Die.

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) 

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…

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)
I used one of my favorite Echo Park collection "For the Record" for this card and love the way it turned out. 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…
