A scene inspired card

Ever since I had been following Michele Zindorf's cards..I wanted to create scenes...and never got the motivation...now I did!!
After seeing Isha's card on "Do more with Less" I was determined to make one...just to take part in her challenge!!
I love her cards and this was my way to say, Thanks for all the inspiration! (Sorry Isha for not finding time to stop by your blog for soo long!)

And also linking this card to Anne Gaal's 4th Blogoversary Celebrations! 

This is simple blending with distress inks...and some masking with a circle post it...Those birds are hand drawn!

Inks used, Mustard seed, Wild honey, spiced marmalade, dried marigold, and fired brick. Memento Black.
Sentiment Papertrey ink.Hero arts- garden bouquet, Antique engravings.

Will be back to post the other cards soon...Had to share this card first, coz else I would have missed out on the deadline! :)

8x8 Scrapbook for Sister

Here's a custom order that I completed recently and so happy to say that it was very well received...That is what matters at the end....
I love each and every page of this book and this was my first time working with pictures than blanks and I think having pictures makes the work much much easier....
Since its a picture heavy post, I won't babble too much...just feast your eyes and ask me if you have any queries...

The cover....Wanted it to look like a frame dangling on the wal...and I love how it looks!!


This is  a mini within a mini.....a foldout booklet that holds 6 photos....fully decorated with Washi tape...the black polka dotted strips are Washi tape from Rachna....Thanks babe!!

Another favorite page...Saw this design in Silhoute studio and decided to cut it by hand....awesome results!!

I had to do this page when it popped into my head....the butterflies are a left over project which was spritzed till it shimmered....
So that's it about my book...would love your feed back on it!! My fastest one to date!!! 20 days only! :)
That might be too much for others, but for me each page is an ART and has a piece of my soul in it...

CAS cards

I think I've been away from my blog too long...The how or the why isn't important, what is, is that I'm here again and dying to share my cards...All of these have been show on Facebook, easier to upload rather than write big long posts which I don't know how many read!!! Sound like a pessimist do I? That's been my mind frame lately and the reason I did not want to blog.....

That pessimism has no place on this blog, so here I am sharing all my CAS cards...

I had a request to make birthday cards, within the price range of 40-60 Rs, and what better than CAS cards..But they had to be huge...so it was A5 size cards (8x5)

Totally inspired from Pinterest..tried to make a male card (gosh why is it so hard) ribbon is an old RAK from a friend (3 yrs old- hoarding at its best) sentiment - Hero arts

 This one uses my very favorite, wanted for a long time stamp - stamped in purple memento and colored using the same!
Sentiment PTI and butterflies and the tiny dragonfly- Antique engravings!

Love that little dragon fly 

Some yummy cupcakes ...Hero arts - colored with Staedler watercolor pencils..and glossy accents to the hearts!

This color palette is totally outside my comfort zone...screams Govinda to me...but what the heck..it looks awesome!!! Thanks Khush for make me think of such quirky colors!!
Butterflies and sentiment PTI

I have a lot of posts to share, so will do so in the next few days....I have a few baby cards to share, a CD mini for the Swap Central India and my 8x8 album for sisters...which I just finished yesterday...that is why the posts are up now!! :)

Talk to you guys soon!!
P.s. I may not be commenting on your posts, but believe me I read every one of them...A thousand apologies for not stopping by to say hello.
