Am down with flu !! so no cooking and no house chores!!! I spent the entire day shopping,, on Etsy and Ebay offcourse! I am slowly trying to build a collction of tools and materials as nothing is available in Indias so i hav to order evrything online. It took a whole day cos i was looking for sales and comparing prices you kno i have 2 really watch the rates as $1 = Rs.50 !! wow tats high.
I bought a lotta goodies a couple stamps and punches mostly, am building the basic stash first the i will graduate to more advanced stuff like embossing!! The heat embossing kinds.. it really fascinates me as i have seen a lot of videos on youtube. Am still learning but still i think i should wait before i start invsting in it.. lol take care.. achooo!!achoo!!

Hey Boy!! I love you Card

This is another card i made as a combined entry for a couple of interesting challenges out there. in the blog world, i loveentering such challenges they are so much fun and its amazing to see the amount of talent that is out there.

Well about the card its a simple 6"x 6" card, the front flap is 1/2" shorter than the back and i added pink cotton lace to make up the size difference. I went with a pinup girl cos i love them they are oo girlie and so colourful, completely appropriate for the Are you Girlie Girl challenge.

I love the combination of pink and black, so i had to go with that!! Iused stiff cotton lace to make it look extra feminine. The paper i used are all organic handmade paper and none of them are branded, except for the zebra printed paper. Which is produced my an Indian paper company called HANDPAPER. The pink paper is coruggated patterened and the base is simple baby pink cardstock.

I used a couple of metal heart shaped brads and a simple hand made paper flower as embelishments. The sentiment i punched out using my alpha punches and stuck them on a black ribbon and added metal brads for "O" and to the exclamation mark.

I used watercolor pencils to color her . and added some bling to adorn her hair and a lil sequin for her earing. I loved how this card turned out .i used a tiny hart shaped hair clip on the ribbon. Initially it was a dusty pink, i ent over it with a pink nail enamel and i got the effect i was looking for, it turned out nice and glossy.

The other challenges i entered are
Flowery Challenge from Stamp Something
Congratulations from Totally Gorjuss

This is my entry for the Simon says card Challenge. Every wednesday of each week they post a new challenge and any one can partcipate, they have such fun and innovative challenges. Also their DT are so talented and they create such amazing cards... This my first attempt at participating in their challenge.. with my fingers crossed here goes nothing.

This card is a weding themed sorta card with the bright Indian wedding colour pallete and offcourse the traditional peacock. All the paper used are organic handmade paper. They are not branded , but they are all gorgeous. I did some mixed media with the wire branch and some velvet leaves and added some flower buttons. I added some ribbon and a some sequins for embellishments. At the bottom i added a ribbon with danggling sequin charms , i love to add such stuff to my projects as they jiggle and move and add charm to the projects.I stamped the peacock and cut it out and used demensionals to give it a 3d effect. It was a lotta of fun making this card .. enjoy...

The red and gold patterned peice you see below the peacock is not paper its silk brocade, I have developed a simple technique to transfer it on paper and it looks absolutely brilliant, you can use it like paper and trim and cut into any shape. It adds a real ornate look to the card making it very ethnic looking.
The pic didnt come out so well, i am still learning to photograph!!
