Watercolor Illustrated card!

I am not formally trained at painting in any medium but whenever I get a chance I do like to give it try. I do not normally get a chance to pursue painting admist my busy schedule and a super active toddler but a commissioned work recently was a perfect opportunity to get back at it.

I had super fun making this A4 size card and loved how this turned out. The idea was to portray the life of a friend from a naughty flirt boy who used to roam outside girl's college to a husband to a shopaholic wife :)

I started out by roughly sketching the college and shopping center buildings on a Brustro Watercolor paper.


And then I went at them with good old watercolors :)



The guy at the college checking out the girls :)


The wife at the shopping center waiting for the husband :)


    Have added some bollywood songs as per client's specifications to add some spice to the card. Ohhh and this is a slider card, so the guy on the bike slides towards the wife :)


Since the inside has a story, we decided to keep the front pretty simple. A watercolor washed out background, hand-written sentiment and corner die-cuts. To make it more like a gift than a card, we decided to put it on a frame. I added some glitter foam sheet to enhance the look and the brad enclosures to keep the card closed.

Here's a little video showing the slider action.

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 


Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching


Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.
