CAS Card For You..!!

Hello...Today i am sharing a CAS card which i made using my newest stamp set and pretty happy with the outcome...do check out this :-



For this card i first matted wood gained PP on the card base ..then place a white CS...then stamped the flowers from recently bought Hero Arts Blossom Stamp Set ... then watercolored the images using Distress inks and to add a gloss ...i used glossy accent over all the flowers...Glitter balls are used for center...stamped the leaf on felt n cut randomly...The Sentiment is a free digi from Avery Elle.... I inverted the colors so can reflect the chalkboard effect . For Chalkboard effect i used versa fine white ink and rub it randomly with my fingertip over the black portion of digi....added foam dots below the flowers n some sequins here n there and its done...!! :)

A Card Inspired By Indian Rangoli....!!

Hi...Today i am sharing a card which took almost 14 Hrs in total 4 days....yes this time i am up with a quilled card which i made for Indira Tanwar's Mega Celebration Challenge#2where the challenge is to make a card, preferably a New Year greeting, using Indian motifs in some or the other form, like, a Mehendi design, Rangoli, Mandala, etc....and is inspired by Our very traditional Indian Rangoli Pattern...and the technique(Paper Curling technique) i used is inspired by a very talented crafter and a master of this art...yes she is none other than Gunjan Alyawadi...she has done amazing work n creations using this technique and with all her permission i tried it...i know its not as perfect as hers but this is my very first attempt and i must say that i thoroughly enjoyed making this.
The Rangoli pattern is hand drew...and the sentiment is also hand written..:) Colors are also very Indian keeping in mind the theme...added foam tape and transparency to keep it safe while shipping as we have to post it to the participant next to us...!!
Followed the Retro sketch (with a little twist) - 



Here it is -
