Diwali Rangoli Design Freebie

Hello Everyone!!!
Today I have a special kind of post for you. As a few of you know that Diwali, the festival of lights begins this week on the 18th Oct.  Everyone back home is getting ready by cleaning their homes, making Diwali sweets, shopping for gifts etc...

Everyone talks about how Diwali is all about lights, but the colors of Rangoli are equally important. Rangoli is an art, origin in India in which patterns are created on the floor in living rooms or courtyards using materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand or flower petals. It is usually made during DiwaliOnamPongal and other Indian, Bangladeshi and Nepalese festivals related to Hinduism. Designs are passed from one generation to the next, keeping both the art form and the tradition alive.

Here are a few samples of Rangoli designs for you to view.

I am not quite the artist to do so by hands, but I still try. So on this occasion, I though I would be cool to try something that I am goo at. That is Adobe Illustrator. So I made a similar Rangoli design for all you to use in the form of a coloring page. So lets have a look at it. 







This is my gift to all of you this Diwali to download it for free. You can download it for free using the Free Download mentioned below.







I hope you all like this coloring page. I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :)

Newton Loves Cake

Hello Everyone!!!
Today I am back again with my last installment of card inspiration as Guest Designer at  Newton’s Nook Designs for the month of August!!!

I really struggle a lot with critter cards as they need to be cute or tell some story through them. I wanted this card to be as special as the other three. So for this week's card I have used the Newton Loves Cake from the latest Newton's Nook Designs. Lets' take a look at the card now.




Here is a close up of the unicorn showing the coloring



Process:
  1. I started off by stamping the the image from the  Newton Loves Cake stamp set on Strathmore Bristol cardstock.
  2. Then I colored the images using Zig clean color real brush pens (colors mentioned is description) & fuzzy cut them using scissors.
  3. Using Spellbinders Oval die, I die-cut an oval from a post-it not to create a mask.
  4. On a separate Strathmore Bristol card panel that's smaller than A2 size, I attached the negative of the die-cut oval post-it. 
  5. Using Distress ink mini cubes I did some ink blending inside the oval area that was open through the mask. Then heavily sprayed it with water and added some salt on the wet surface and let it dry.
  6. Once the surface was dry, I scratched off the salt from the card panel .
  7. I added some doodled pattern around this oval using Sharpie black pen.
  8. Later I added a few splatters of Finetec gold watercolor on the card panel to add interest.
  9. Next I stamped the sentiment on a vellum strip using Versamark inkpad and heat embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts black embossing powder.
  10. Then I attached the vellum strip to the card panel using glue on the ends and tuck the vellum strip around the card panel.
  11. Finally I attached the colored image slightly over the vellum strip using foam tape, 
  12. I finished the card by attaching the entire panel on an A2 sized top folding black card base and added a few sequins to the card  as finishing touches.
I had so much fun creating all these cards and I am really very grateful to all those who gave me this chance, stuck by my side  & appreciated my work. 

I hope you all liked it. I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :)

Believe In Unicorns

Hello Everyone!!!
Today I am back with another card inspiration for you all as Guest Designer at Newton’s Nook Designs for the month of August!!!

This week's card is created using the Believe In Unicorns stamp set from the latest Newton's Nook product release for the month of August. Lets' take a look.





Here is a close up of the unicorn showing the coloring



Process:
  1. I started off by stamping the unicorn & rainbow images from the Believe In Unicorns stamp set on Strathmore Bristol cardstock.
  2. Then I colored the images using Zig clean color real brush pens (colors mentioned is description) & fuzzy cut them using scissors.
  3. Then using the Sky Border die, I die-cut various cloud shaped pieces. To add interest to them, I did a bit of ink blending on the edges of those die-cuts using Salty ocean Distress ink mini.
  4. On a separate Strathmore Bristol card panel that's smaller than A2 size, I stamped the sentiment in the left top corner from the same stamp set & I attached the cloud shaped die-cuts from the bottom up using foam tape to create dimension.
  5. Finally I attached the unicorn & the rainbow using foam tap as well and added the entire panel on an A2 sized Lawn Fawn patterned paper.
  6. I finished the card by attaching the entire panel on an A2 sized top folding card base, added a few sequins to the card and added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the rainbow & unicorn  as finishing touches.
I hope you all liked it. I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :)
