Post - 101 : Two Pretty Cards !!

Hello pretty friends...!! Did you notice that i finally completed 100 Posts on my blog !! Yaya..!! & Its my 101 th post ...!! Today I am sharing two Simple yet pretty Cards !!
Here is the first card for which I used Hindi Sentiments Stamp set from Peek-a-boo Design..I just love this stamp as this is the first Hindi stamp n that too launched by Indian company along with it is very versatile n can be combined with almost all Indian festivals/ occasions !!

Firstly I choose a wood grain BG paper ..then added some colorful fabric tapes on the panel for some texture n color !! Added a die cut label on which I stamped my sentiment. And for final touch I placed a rose bud besides the sentiment panel. Wanted to focus the sentiment only so kept it quite simple !!

Now to the next card ..this one was super quick n i loved the way  it turned out so colorful !! For this card I used sponged & water drop technique ..haha ..sounds interesting na ? But its only putting distress ink with ink daubeers on to ur card stock & then dropping some water droplets with a brush. Then wait for some seconds to react ink with water n then soak the excess water with paper napkin ! 
The BG is soo colorful then who can not think of holi ? So added the Holi Sentiment from Peek-a-boo stamp range !! For some interest added silver thread n some sequins !!

Hope you like my cards !!

Happy Crafting !!
