Two Cards !!

Hello Friends .. Very Good Morning !! 

It's Vijaylaxmi (Shalu) here and I am super duper excited today to share my very first post as a Design Team member of Peek-a-Boo Design !! This is so special to me and i am very honored to be here !!

As you know about our current Challenge  # 2 - Anything Goes, where you can make anything you like, but it's gotta have a stamp and any 3 out of the following 4 colors : Saffron, White, Green and Blue. (Think patriotic this month :) )

I made two cards based on the challenge theme and to hopefully inspire all you lovely folks to participate and win some cool stamps!!!

So here is my First Card -

For This card i Picked almost all the colors with little variation in shades from our tri-color mood-board !!
Firstly i created my base but adhering textured white(RAK From Pooja @ Reusing Cards & Quilling ) & Navy blue strips in horizontal fashion...then added a silver strip vertically for more interest .

I used  Lotus Delight Stamp Set this project !! Stamped & heat embossed the lotus in silver EP on water color paper & then Colored it with Nirmal Watercolors (Sent by Generous Tejal-Mehta-Shah) .Added some silver thread and green sequins for some texture !! Sentiment is again from the same set  Lotus Delight  which is heat embossed in white !! And yay ..its done !! i totally loved the output and beautiful water-colored lotus.

Check this closer look -

Now to the Second Card - 

For this card I Used gorgeous CHRYSANTHEMUM stamp for Flower & Quilted Love For Back ground from Peek-a-Boo Designs !!
Back ground is heat embossed in White EP & then distressed with Tumbled Glass DI.
Stamped the flower on white CS & Colored it using Watercolor Pencils..the center is covered with glossy accents & a pinch of glitter!!
Before adding fuzzy cut flower to the base i splatter the base with some green & golden watercolor for more interest & also added a golden scalloped strip & sequins for final touch !!
Sentiment is from You and Me Stamp from Peek-a-Boo Design !!
