Best Friends !


Simple friendship themed card
Isn't it a simplest of cards ? I made it for ongoing celebrations on my friend Jasleen's Blog.For Contest 2 she has asked us to create a friendship themed card and also tell about a technique we wish to get better at.


Simple friendship themed card
This card has no fancy technique,just Simple fun ,which is what I want to get better at ! I want my cards to be funny,witty and bring smile on recipient's face.Plus I also want to get better at drawing images and letter writing and the list will go long !
Did I succeed in bringing a smile on your face ?

Wooing back Craft Mojo

CAS Birthday card
As the title says  I made a card to woo back my crafting Mojo ! My friend Sucheta (Suchiz Cardstock) recently gifted me this beautiful Humming Birds stampset which she has designed for Mudra Craft stamps.I had to use it immediately ;)

CAS Birthday card
I stamped the fuschia flower branch on a watercolor paper and did no-line coloring with color pencils and fussy cut them.On the card-base I applied Rangers Texture paste mixed with Salty oceans DI through Neat and Tangled Parquet stencil. Adhered a frame and fussy cut images on it.Stamped the sentiment from Tim holtz stamp set and finished off with few sequins. Not my best though ,I am glad atleast I created !

One layered Thanks



One Layered Thanks
 Hello friends Sharing a One Layered CAS cards today.This month one of my friend Shalu's card (of All By Heart Creation.) is being cased for CASEploration challenge.Take a look at her wonderful card , many elements to be inspired from !



I was inspired by the bold Black stripy background and went super light.Used diluted pearl acrylic colors for strips and stamped the flowers(Jane's Doodles - Spring blessings). For the ground I have used texture stamp(Bo Bunny).Needed something to tie the flowers with the background so splattered some black paint and added few clear sequins

One Layered Thanks

For the love of Coloring

All occasion card with watercoloring
Hello friends I have got one more floral card today ! I created this card solely for the purpose of coloring.The 30 day coloring challenge has got me hooked to coloring.

All occasion card with watercoloring
Stamped the flowers with masking (Jane's Doodles spring blessings)and went about water-coloring them using Akashiyasai watercolor brush pens.I laid down to much color and lost the transparent look (lesson learnt). So,Used white color pencil to  highlight some part of petals.

All occasion card with watercoloring

Stamped lots of dots in the background, a sentiment and finished off with clear sequins !

Mosiac or stained glass ?


Water colored Thank you card
Hello Friends ! I am back with a card so soon feels nice to be blogging back to back :) Now that you have seen the card what does it look like ? A mosaic effect or stained glass look ? Well was aiming for a polygon effect ;) ( image looks to be composed of so many polygons).  

Water colored Thank you card
Without realizing that there is a systematic method to achieve the effect ,I jumped in by stamping the flowers(Jane's Doodles Stamp :Spring Blessings) ,heat embossed the grid like pattern ,Got all my watercolor mediums (DIs, Akashiya watercolor brush pen,watercolor pencils) and went about coloring it.I enjoyed itso much could not stop ! It was nice exercise as  I got to know more about the mediums and amount of water needed to get different shades.Finished by writing "thanks" with black acrylic paint .
Do tell me what you think of it !
