Congratulations - For the one out with flying colours.

Hi all. This week's CTS # 52 is up with a simple sketch, looking at which I knew what I'll be doing right away. Here is my take on it.


I have painted the wide strip of paper in patches with 4 PTI inks, diluted in water - Simply Chartreuse, Pure Poppy, Hawaiian shores, and Lemon Tart. These colours smudged off so well. Then I have used a memory box die cut for the circles background and for the 'Congratulations' banner I have used tilted banners die cut from Simon Says Stamp.

Do join the fun and play along here @ CTS # 52


Hope you liked my card. Your opinion about the card matters. Thanks for peeking in.

Thanks - Cath

Hi all. I couldn't believe the news that it will be the last post from her last Friday. I have been busy last fortnight with job and job hunting, and this morning when I checked the blog feeds, I was saddened by the news. I had to make a card to thank Cath for all the inspiration she has shared over the years. Here is the card I made for our 'moxie fab' Cath.


For making this card I had taken inspiration from the colorQ challenge # 213. I used sponge daubers to ink the negative space, of a stencil from momenta, with the colours from the challenge.


Hope you liked the card. Your opinion about the card matters. Thank you.

Love birds again

Hi all. Here is the card I made for the Casual Fridays challenge # 117.


I took the "CFC # 117 - In stitches" literally. So I put my birds and the little red heart within the stitches on this card.


Update
----------
I won the CFC 117 Challenge with this card. Yay!!. Refer the post here.

Hope you liked the card. Your opinion about the card matters. Thank you.

My best part of the day is - 'You'

Hi all. Here is my other take on the RIC # 45 challenge this week.
 

This card is inspired by this week's RIC # 45 - Tanya Taylor challenge. The colour stripes on the dress were my inspiration. The sentiment and the die cut are from "Simon says stamp -you", which I had stamped in a curve. Click on the image below to check out  the challenge.

Rainbow Stripes

Hi all. Finally, I am back with a card.



This card is inspired by this week's RIC # 45 - Tanya Taylor challenge. The colour stripes by the model's arm actually inspired the design on my card. Since the colour stripes were to a side, I had my butterfly placed at an angle and to the right of my card. The black lines and the sentiment are sketched. Click on the image below to check out  the challenge.
