Happy Mother's Day!!!

Hi Friends, 
Today I'm here with this beautiful card I recently made using some of my favourite craft supplies.

I started the card by stamping the flowers & leaves from Altenew's Persian Motifs stamp set on to a watercolour cardstock. For stamping I used Antique Linen distress ink as I wanted to try my hand on  no-line water colouring. This is my very first try on no-line water colouring technique. Once stamped I have used my kids unbranded watercolour pan set as I'm not into colouring. I have used shades of blue, green to colour the stamped flowers & leaves. In each flower I painted the alternate petals so I dont smudge the colouring. This way the outline of each petal is maintained even though it is no-line colouring and I could also create the depth effect.

Once the flowers and leaves were done I painted the background with shades of yellow. This further enhanced my flowers. I always wanted to try water colouring but used to hold myself as I have zero knowledge of it. But after finishing this card I'm confident enough to try water colouring again. To give a final touch to my water colouring, I splattered it with white and dark shade of blue. This gave a dimension to my colouring.

Now was the time to turn this painted artwork into a card. The sentiment used is from Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold & the Happy stamp set. It is stamped using Cobalt Archival Ink. Finally I added this coloured piece to a 4 3/4" x 6" white no card. To elevate the water coloured panel I have added 2 strips of navy blue cardstock on either sides of it. To jazz up the card I have added sequences matching the background from my stash.

I had a great time making this card and also I'm proud of myself for pulling the no-line technique so well in my very first try. I hope you guys too like it and do leave some love and suggestions in the comments below. Have a nice Day!!!

Moms of the World

Hi Friends,

It's been super long i haven't blogged... But its refreshing to blog back...
I'm here to share a beautiful mixed media project.
The theme is - Moms of the World

I have been fortunate enough to experience the Mom feeling once again with the birth of my 2nd son on 27th November, 2018 and it's he who has been keeping me on toes and busy all the time...

Motherhood is a beautiful feeling and also a roller-coaster ride. Motherhood makes you realise how tolerent you can be. It teaches you another level of patience and an overflowing feeling of love, overwhelm & appreciation. You start appreciating your parents and fellow mothers. Your start loving every thing your child does, even if it is messy & dirty. You start loving yourself yet again in whichever shape you are.

To express this Motherhood feeling I made this project and thus it's super close to my heart....

Every mom around the world experience the same motherhood feeling.

'Mother' said or heard in any language always reminds you of a caring, protecting, calm yet strong, selflessly loving WOMAN.

I hope you all like this project. Do leave some love below in the comment section.
