Finally I am enjoying another weekend :)...So couldn't  wait to create a new card..:P
I chose the theme as "Rain" and mostly I have used hand drawing and painting in this card. Used very minimum embellishments.
-->Cut out the green umbrella from a segment of corrugated paper..:)
-->Used heart shaped stones as big raindrops and pearls to border the cloud..
-->Decorated the umbrella as well. Used umbrella shaped stencil to design the left border.
It just came  out very colorful as I painted some of the  cubes with Pink & green..:) What to do..I just cannot stop using lots of colors..:)

This is the card that I made today..I had a yellow blank card that was unused because I couldn't find any colors to match the vibrant yellowish color that It carried!!
& finally thought of  giving it a try with a combination of black & red and I think the card looks pretty elegant.

The card is pretty simple.You can make out how I made It just by looking!

1.Mostly I pasted cut out papers from stash & bordered them with with Zig Zag Craft Border Edge Cutting Scissors
2.Punched out the black flowers by Itsybitsy craftpunch.
3.The Red velvet flower from CraftAdda & Mini Heart from LittleBirdie.
4.The stamp used is Inkadinkado Clear Stamps with faber-castell acrylic color..:)

A Paper woven Card..!

While browsing through crafting sites..I came across a nice technique of paper weaving!!
In paper weaving,stripes of papers are passed through one another and the end of the stripes are glued ..:)

I made a simple New baby girl card using the technique...I am loving the flower craft punch as these tiny lovely flowers easily fit into any card I make ..:P

You can get to learn paper weaving by watching the following video:
