Hello Sunshine !!

Hello friends,

I had an awesome weekend as my close friend and her kids came to visit us...It was super fun filled weekend with lot of crafting,painting,swimming and last but not the least loads of delicious food.
Now back to making some gorgeous cards.Today I have made a card with Create A Smile stamps. These stamps are lovely with awesome quality.I have been eyeing on these beauties for long and finally have added some to my stash.Sharing card below


I have used flowers from Cart full of treasure stamp set and have done lots of masking.I did stamping with black archival first and then water colored the flowers.I tried making a big spring bouquet .Once all done I have die cut the piece with a circle die.

For making the card,I took a 5*5 inches white base card and attached a green vellum strip of 2*3 inches  from the right.Then attached the floral colored piece up on the vellum with double sided tape.I added a sentiment by die cutting with Stamplorations (Cutplorations) Hello Sunshine Phrase Die using gold sheet.

Attached all with clear glue and lastly added some fun dots with Rangers enamel accent.Happy to see my first floral spring card for the month.Sharing few more pics of the card



I am joining fun on the following blogs with this card:

Touch of Nature with Culture!!

Hello friends,

Hope you all have started enjoying the weekend...Today I have a very different Mixed media where I have tried combining many elements like Culture,Nature ,Mythology and most importantly an important message for humanity. Some days back I traveled to Kerala and felt the culture a little more closely.

My frame derives its main essence from an Indian state,"KERALA"....Kerala is also known as GOD'S OWN COUNTRY...one of the important festival of Kerala is "ONAM".It is an annual Hindu festival and falls in the Malayalam Calendar of Chingam,which in Gregorian calendar overlaps with August-September.The festival commemorates the Vamana avatar of Vishnu,a Hindu god and subsequent homecoming of the legendary Emperor "Mahabali".

Sharing pictures of the frame below,





Story goes that during the reign of mighty asura (demon) king, Mahabali, Kerala witnessed its golden era. Every body in the state was happy and prosperous and king was highly regarded by his subjects. Apart from all his virtues, Mahabali had one shortcoming. He was egoistic. This weakness in Mahabali's character was utilized by Gods to bring an end to his reign as they felt challenged by Mahabali's growing popularity. However, for all the good deed done by Mahabali, God granted him a boon that he could annually visit his people with whom he was so attached.It is this visit of Mahabali that is celebrated as Onam every year. People make all efforts to celebrate the festival in a grand way and impress upon their dear King that they are happy and wish him well.
I have used various mediums for this frame..I have used raw mdf base for the frame and have used lot of Lindy's sprays ,Shimmer pastes,Distress inks and gold flakes.I have also used air dry clay to give little 2D effect at some places.The leaves are done with Foamiran.
Sharing few more pics of the frame


I completely enjoyed making the frame as I personally believe how these festivals bring the whole world together.A little more about the highlight of my frame...I have used the hand painted picture of KATHAKALI dancer,which is main attraction of Onam dance.Attaching a pic of real Kathakali dance


The Elephants are adorned with beautiful gold plated costumes to welcome king Mahabali. 

Hope you have liked it too,Do leave love in the form of comments below...Thanks for stopping by.

I have used MFT Beary Special Birthday Stamp set,stamped the images with Black Archival ink and then water colored with zig pens.
