Hello 2016 ..

WOW!! That is some long absence. But I guess that's what happening...Social media is like microblogging and that's why I never feel the need to pen down my words here. But as New Year arrives, my resolutions also arrive..and one is to blog more often.

But some things deserve a blog post..and hence I am here..

To say hello to new challenge blog in town and to support a friend...
Say hello to Paru's Card Making Challenge Blog..

And here is the key for this first ever challenge...I hope I can keep up with it each month..

Here is my card...

This has everything new..well almost everything..

The "Awesome" script die is from Lil Inker's as well as the sentiment stamp. (NEW)
The background stamp is brand new, a RAK from Priya sondhi.. (how did you read my mind btw!!) I totally love it.. It is an MFT All over Roses background stamp (NEW)
And of course, my most beloved, the Stitched rectangle dies...Also from Lil Inker..(Can you say I shopped a lot at black friday??) :P (NEW)

I was  playing around with my stamp and heat embossing and new Nirmal watercolors..(if you are not on Facebook, you may not be up to date with my antics..will do a post soon on it!)

To the left is the Nirmal watercolors and to the right is distress ink colors. Distress inks that I used are Spun sugar and Picked Raspberry and for the greens, Mowed Lawn.

By accident, I got the most amazing Pearl finish embossing powder from Hero is white, but embosses shiny satiny look..and when you pair that with Wink of stella gives amazing results..

It may not be clear, just enlarge the pic to see it. It is the White Satin  Embossing powder from Hero Arts.

To finish up the card, I scribbled Wink of Stella Clear on the roses, as well the Awesome word. And coated the word die cut in Glossy Accents. I am sorry I do not have a better photo as this card is already with a dear dear friend!

If you need any more info, do not hesitate to ask me!

Hope to continue blogging..there are a ton of cards that I do need to post though!

See you soon!
