Roses

Hi all. This week’s RIC # 66 challenge is quite interesting where all colours are brilliant. Here is my take on the challenge.

 The wooden box in the background, the royal blue and the roses have clearly inspired me. The layout of the card too is inspired from the picture, if you know what I mean. http://runwayinspired.blogspot.com/2014/08/ric66-sportmax.html Hope you liked my card.

Dazzle

Hi all. I love the weather here in New Jersey today. Also today is my parents anniversary and they are here with me. The drizzles, fog  and the occasion have set my mood for the day. So here is the card for today. 

Inspiration

Thanks to the electrifying runway picture @ RIC # 36 challenge this week. The colours used on the flower are all obviously influenced by the picture. Also the shape of the flower is sort of triangular, which is again inspired by the triangles on the outfit. I had inked a textured white card stock with red and purple to match the BG in the inspirational picture. Then with baby pink and light purple for the inner petals. I teased the edges of the flower with scissors for effect.

Hope you liked my card. Your opinion about the card matters. Thank you.

This card won me the Fabulos Fashionisita @ RIC challenge# 36 for the week here.

Hi all. I am a great mood to make cards today. So here is a card I created with just stamping! It’s a one layer card obviously. I love those 3 gems on this card. 

This card is inspired from the Case this sketch # 28. So I am submitting this card for the challenge this week.

Neon Bright – Paper piecing

Hi all. Here is the card for today that I made using techniques which I seldom use often.

This week @ 365 cards we need to create a card which is frame-able – i.e Create a card (a work of art) that you would consider worthy of framing and hanging on the wall. Do join the fun @ 365 cards this week. This is completely subjective, so it’s totally up to you.

Coming to my take on the challenge, I thought of birds perched on tree, coloured subjects but din’t trigger the idea for a such a card. Then I was surfing through the challenges when I came across Pinspired Challenge #9“. And their inspiration photo (below) immediately stemmed a  flower inside my mind.

How I made the card?
I hand-sketched flowers of different sizes on pink and orange neon papers, which I had cut in layers (paper piecing) to make the big flower. I simply stamped the background with birthday song lyrics, polkadots, leaves and added crystals around the flower. I had inked the edges of the base with distress ink and then teased the edges a bit, which added depth to the border.

I am submitting this card for the following challenges.
Hope you liked my card. Your opinion about the card matters. Thank you.

This card is the Pinspired challenge # 9 runner up here.

Happy Together

Hi all and here is the card for today. This card is for my friend, Chandu, who is getting married tomorrow and is celebrating her Mehendi (kind of a traditional bachelorette party) in India right now.

This card was inspired  by the pinspiritational pic @ the pinspired challenges. The colour pencils in the picture triggered this idea of colour waves intertwining together and that’s how the card took shape.

Hope you all like my card for today. Your opinion about the card matters. Thank you.
