Hand drawn Christmas Trees.. :)

Yes! I drew those trees.. I was totally inspired by Ardyth's card design.. 
"A little colour on a mainly white background can give surprising but still CAS results!"
(I'm not sure whether I've achieved that result. I'm sorry if I took it wrong)
I created the dark night sky using Broken china DI, Memento dark and light blue and black inks..
Sentiment was hand written and added glitters just to give a feel of snowy look..

Entering this card for CASology week 68, black and Muse #41(inspired by blue color and Christmas tree)
and Simon Says Stamp_Anything goes.


Hope you guys like it..

Thank you.. :)

Chalk Colors..

Hello friends! Yay! I used my chalk colors after a very long time. So happy.. :)
I did some masking on this card. Used EK success chalk colors for the back ground. The card sketch is from CAS on Sunday #20, Sketch Challenge and the colors are from Crazy for CAS #30, Inspiration picture. I love the colors of fall; orange, yellow, red and brown.. :) Stamped the plant and sentiment (My mind's eye). Finally added glossy accents.. 
Also entering this card for Simon Says Stamp_Anything goes.


Thank you and take care.. :)

Hand Stitched Wreath!

Hey friends! I love love to hand stitch something on my cards. So I got a chance to stitch a wreath. Christmas is nearing so I need to make a few cards for my family and friends.. :)

I used golden and golden green threads to stitch the wreath. The wreath was hand drawn. 'Season's Greetings' was also hand written and hand stitched. I loved Deepti's idea on how she makes those colored glossy accents on her cards.. So I used the same idea here..

Well.. I made this card for UnstampBelles Challenge #28, Stitching

Here is the closure look..

Thank you .. :)

See you soon.. :)

Sketch + Colors

Hello friends! I made this card for Case this sketch #51 , Pretty Pink Posh, 10 min craft dash #28 and CASology #67.  Usually I'm not that comfortable with sketch and colors given in a challenge. But after seeing this sketch, I felt it was something and it's a bit complicated too (for me ;)). So just want to give it a try. I have a sketch now and what else do I need?? Colors!! So I went with PPP color scheme.. :)

I took 9min 33sec to finish this card. [feel the depth in the card.. :D ;)]


Thank you.. :)

Fun card!

How is this card? Cute?? To make this card I did some masking in the background. The cow is hand drawn and colored with Fabercastell color pens. And then fuzzy cut it and adhered it using the glue. Flowers are stamped (Inque stamps) on a white cardstock, colored them with the same color pens and then fuzzy cut it.
Finally the sentiment is hand written 'We are Moo'ing'  and then added glossy accents.. :)

Addicted to Stamps and More #67

Hello friends! Welcome back to yet another lovely challenges at Addicted to Stamps and More. The theme this week is 'Make your mark', you can just color the image using any kind of medium.

Then stamped the sentiment (Karber stamps) using Versafine black ink..
