Watercolor with Distress Inks | Video Tutorial | Giveaway WInner!

Hello,

I recently shared these two cards over at the Mudra blog recently and today I have the process video on how I created those cards.

It was a bit of a challenge as the cardstock that I used was super absorbent and made blending colors a nightmare. But I worked around it and thought it would be fun to share how to improvise when you are stuck with a bad choice of supplies that doesn't particularly work well for the technique that you are trying :)






Watch the video 


I hope you enjoy this video :)

I am entering the blue butterfly card in Stamploration March CAS Card Challenge where the twist is to add sky blue color.


And also these cards perfectly fit the theme for the HLS March Watercolor Challenge

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.
