Happy Birthday - CASE A CARD & CHALLENGE !

 Hi Friends,
Today I made a card for Deepti's Blog Anniversary Challenge. It's a fun challenge, where I got to choose any card from her Blog & CASE it. After going through her Blog i finally decided on one card that I was inspired by. Here's Deepti's card and I loved the Ombre effect she tried to bring in here. here's the link to her blog.

Here's my take on it. I have painted the background in different shades of Blue to give it a subtle Ombre Look.

Cardstock Canson & Recollections
Gelatos & Distress Ink Pad - Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans & Chipped Sapphire

Another Video Tutorial for an Art Journal Page - For the July Color Challenge & DT Call at Lindy's Stamp Gang !!

Hi Friends,
I'm on a roll when it comes to Mixed Media now a days. Infact I just had to create something when I saw a Color Challenge/DT Call at Lindy's Stamp Gang Blog.
I have been hooked on to LSG products since the time I got them first, which hasn't been long enough. I wish I had bought these awesome-ness shimmery sprays earlier. But as they say... It's never too late to begin! And I Know for sure that I'm hooked on to these for LIFE !
Love all the products...form Startburst sprays,to Moon Shadows...Love the Glitz Spritz for the extra Shimmer, Embossing Powders, Magicals - They have been given a very Apt name...they are TRULY MAGICAL ! And what do I say about the Color Shots? You can experiment with them using any kinda medium u want for different looks. U can mix them with GESSO, GEL MEDIUM, MOULDING PASTE ETC.
Oooh they're just awesome.
If you  haven't had the chance to work with them, DO NOT delay !! Go grab your shimmers,sprays, embossing powders (now available in matching colors to your sprays) etc.

Here's my Project that I'd like to submit for the Color Challenge going on over at their Blog, along with the DT Call !!
Keeping my Fingers Crosssed !!

Please take a Look at the Video Tutorial here and Leave some Love !

Happy Watching,

Q. When did you begin Paper Crafting ?
A. I have been crafting ever since I was  a little girl. My mum used to tell me that I was prolly born with a pair of scissors, glue & paint brush in my hand. ROFL !
As a kid and even now I have always gifted my friends & dear ones with handmade cards & Gifts, altered items for their Birthdays, Wedding Anniversaries & other such Occasions. For all the festivals we celebrate I have always decorated my home. Since my Childhood I have enjoyed every bit of my passion for crafting and would wanna continue to do so in every form !

Q. Do You have a preferred technique ?
A. I like to experiment with almost anything that I can get hold of. I don't follow any specific method or technique. I just believe in going with the flow. And I enjoy learning each time I experiment with something new. Currently I'm thoroughly enjoying Mixed Media where the possibilities are endless.....

Q. Who is Your Favorite  Manufacturer ?
A. Now this is a Super Tough One. It's like choosing between your own kids.
ROFL... Well to name some I absolutely Love Ranger,Prima,Lindy's Stamp Gang, Design Memory Craft - Faber Castell, Fiskars,Kaiser Craft,Spellbinders,Unity Stamp Co. and Many Many More !

Q. Music- Off/On while Crafting ?

Q.  Anything else You would like us to know ?
A. Just that I am ever so thankful to God for having given me the ability to see, touch, hear, feel & taste everything that HE has created. It's so BEAUTIFUL !

Also for showering upon me so much of Love, Support, understanding & Cooperation from My Husband Sourav without whom I would not have been here today! 

I wanna thank all my Friends & Co Crafters for inspiring me in every little way & encouraging me to do better. 

To all the Manufacturers, Educators, Shop Owners, etc a Big Thank You & Hug - Cause it's because of you guys that Crafters like us are surviving. I sometimes wonder what would have I done if I didn't craft ?!? 

Psssst... I have this TERRIBLE HABIT of Standing while I'm crafting. I just cannot make myself to SIT & Craft. Even if I'm crafting for long hours I stand & work !! Does that happen to anyone else?? Am I NORMAL ?
