Two cards again! :)

Hello friends! I made two cards for a few challenges. Here is the first one.. :)


For the background I used a technique called Faux Embossing.. It's really a cool technique. Love it..
The big cloud was hand drawn and stamped repeatedly with snag em' stamp. I attached embroidery floss behind the clouds and at the end of the floss adhered punched out stars using a foam tape. For the stars I used stickles and glossy accents. 



Entering this card for Itsy Bitsy Precious Baby Challenge and STAMPloration bi-weekly sketch #8 (turned the sketch upside down)


And here is my second card!


I made my own handmade stencil and created the back ground, did masking, sponging and paper piecing..

Here is the stencil..

Hello Spring!

Hello dear friends, I was away from town for the last couple of weeks, went to Hyderabad to see my sister and nieces..Had a lot of fun with family members and I did a little shopping (craft) at Vijetha stores.. :) back to my home town yesterday morning, did some cleaning and crafting.. I lost my creative ideas since I didn't even sketch or craft or plan them for the last two weeks. Some how managed to make a card but I'm not that satisfied with the final result..


I used a technique called 'Stamping with an acrylic block' for the back ground, stamped Inkadinkado flowers on a piece of water color paper and colored then using fabercastell water color pencils. Finally stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts.. 


Hope you like this card, will get back to your blogs as soon as possible. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving some love.. :)
