Hi... Crafty friends..

Swapna here with few cards for upcoming Deepavali festival. I made these cards with Peek-a-boo designs September release. Do check them out Here.

Card #1

* Stamped the image and coloured with Staedtler water colour pencils and used wink of stella to blend colours.
* Die cut image with scalloped circle die, used bigger die.
* Glued the circle pieces on a circle card base.
* Used sentiment inside as the main image says everything.

Its depicting young girls making Rangoli during festival.

Card #2

This is continuation of my previous post which you can find Here.

* I die cut leaves from craft foam twice.
* Die cut leaves from a scrap acetate to make my own stencil.
* Used few dye inks to blend through leaf stencil.
* Then stamped detail of leaf on the ink blended leaves.
* Wrapped green embroidery floss towards top and tied a small bow.
* Glued two leaves die cut in white and added a green sequin.
* Stamped sentiment and foam mounted on the panel.

This card is depiction of  Torana (Mango leaves we use during any festival to decorate the entrance of house and temple) .

Card #3

* Secured card base to work surface.
* Placed stencil and secured it.
* Used ranger spray in gold and sprayed few times from 1 feet above to get smaller droplets.
