I had a lot of fun with these rush order Diwali Cards! I used ink and acrylic paint to make these 5×7 mini works of art :)
Two weeks ago, I was all packed and ready to go for my one week adventure in Lima, Peru. It was my first trip to South America, and also my first official work trip! With so many work obligations and things to see, I only managed to find a few hours for shopping in the “Indie Market” to pick up a couple of gifts for my family & friends. Lima was absolutely beautiful! The weather was in the mid 20’s with a cool ocean breeze. I had mangoes with my breakfast every morning, and I had an amazing time practicing Spanish with all the locals :)
The week I landed also happened to be one of my friend’s birthdays :) I decided to whip up a quick Peru Inspired card to match the Peruvian inspired scarf I got her. Today also happens to be MY birthday! So Feliz Cumpleanos to me as well ;)
I created this card using white card stock, a few rhinestones from the dollar store, old scrapbook paper and acrylic paints. Definitely a card fit for a diva :)
This card was also a part of my sick afternoon creative session. Two days of painful boredom was good for something!
Using a paisley stamp acrylic paints and card stock, in a vivid peacock coloured palette, I created these 5 new cards.
If you are thinking of ordering cards for Diwali, look no further! These cards are only $3.00 each and can be made in the colours of your choice! I do require 7 days notice, so email me at srisarts @ gmail .com if you’re interested :)
These two cards were made with acrylic paints, card stock, gold pen, 3D foam tape, and a paisley rubber stamp.
This past week, I came down with a terrible cold and fever! On Thursday afternoon, after spending two full days on the couch I finally got the energy to have a short creative session. It was not only relaxing, but keeping away from the laptop and TV was great for my headache. Also, I learnt that spending two days on a couch staring at a wall with only a box of tissues for company is great to get the creative juices flowing. Stay tuned for a few more cards I made to replenish my completely depleted ‘card stock’ (pun intended, and if you didn’t get the pun, then it’s probably because it wasn’t very funny :P).
On September 22, Handicare International is having its annual fundraiser. I have always supported this charity, as over 90% of their proceeds go directly to help the cause. This year I will be donating a couple of paintings for their silent auction; Tangled, and two surprises :). I decided I’d attach a small card along with the paintings, to direct those who bid on my paintings to my website. I designed these two cards last week, and printed a few out on my HP printer.
