Post 308: CAS Diwali Card (peacock)

Hi friends!

I'd like to share a Clean & Simple Diwali Card. This was part of my DT work for Peekaboo Designs. All the details can be found here. Diwali is the festival of lights :) and in India it is celebrated with a lot of pomp and show. We spend time with our loved ones and family, prepare special sweets and give gifts to each other.


1. Die cut white cardstock using the Scalloped Circle die.
2. Stamped the beautiful image from the new Madhubani Stamp onto Canson watercolor paper. Then watercolored it using zig markers & an aqua brush and then fussy cut it.
3. Stamped the sentiment from the Diwali Greetings stamp onto a strip of cardstock & then matted it with the pretty new Rainbow Hues Washi Tape.
4. Assembled the card by adhering the 2 scalloped circle die cuts to a black card base. Then adhered the sentiment and foam mounted the image. In the end, added a few white dots with a white gel pen.

Here are a couple of photos of the card:

I am playing along with the following challenges:

AAA Cards Challenge #101- Inspired by a film (I was inspired by this song in the hindi film Lamhe- the actress is singing about how a peahen dances in the night time, I tried to depict that by using a black card base and the stamped image of a peacock, the colorful dress & bangles are depicted in the rainbow hued washi tape)
Addicted to stamps & more #264 - CAS

Pixie's Snippets Playground Weeks 303 & 304 (Used snippets of cs & watercolor paper for stamping the sentiment & peacock respectively) 

Thanks for your time!
Love reading your sweet comments :)
Stay Blessed.
