Holi Hai!!! (It's Holi!!!)

Hi all,

How was the weekend? It feels sad as now the weekend is over :( same boring daily job routine will start tomorrow... I am waiting for the day when I don't have to go to office and I will be sitting and crafting to my heart content... :D but then I have to do the job so that I can buy whatever craft supplies I want... ;)

Anyhow... lets come back to the reality so that I can share a card I made as a GD for ICRC16... and the theme is....


Yes.. it's Holi!!! The festival of colors and spring!!! For my international readers, here is the link for you to know this Indian festival better...

The theme for the ICRC16 is HOLI + Use only 3 colors - Fuschia pink, bright green and bright yellow (Use of black and Neutrals like white and off- white will be allowed ) with a dare  to use a misting technique.
And here is my card...



I gave the misting effect by adding fine water droplets to the background of distress inked paper. Almost everything is from Itsy Bitsy... Blank CS... Alphabets... and small hand punch..


It is a pretty simple card.. but I loved it... I am sending this one to my parents... :)

I am entering this card to following challenges...
1. the paper players - Spring
2. Crafter's Companion - Spring
3. simon says stamps challenge - Anything goes

Love,
Priya...
