Happy Republic Day

Wishing you all A very Happy republic Day with this card

This card is based on a hindi move song which was picturized on Raj Kapoor.If You love listening old hindi songs then I am sure the song must have started playing in your mind ! If  not ..then lets sing together ..

  Mera juta hai japani....

Yeh Patloon Englistani .. 

Sir pe lal topi Rusi ...

Phir BHi Dil hai Hindustani ...

         For my friends not knowing this song or hindi ..It says...
My shoes are Japanese
These trousers are English
The red hat on my head is Russian
But even so, my heart is India.
 This song was written way back in 1955 but its  true ..even today..Today is republic Day of India so I represented  it on my card ...like this ..
Made a small pop-up book to symbolize constitution of India .For background  I have used printout of news paper dated 26 Jan 1950 got it from archives .The image on card front is hand drawn and colored with water color pencils.I drew it on back of an invitation card paper pieced it and glued it on card . Do tell me if you like it !

Card for Wedding

For this card I have misted the background using water colors,made stencils by cutting some hearts shape out of scrap paper.

The bride and groom are hand drawn and colored with water color pencils.

Added some gauze bandage above and below the pictures to give some delicate texture.Quilled some flowers and leaves around the images

The sentiments are handwritten.I had planned to print it but  later thought lets try to write it.So,observed how each alphabet is written and then copied it on paper ! I have used pink glitter pen for the stitched outline.
Now lets see how it looks when opened ..

Yes ..one more pop-up card !

I have used bride and groom digi from Milk N Coffee digital stamps and colored with water color pencils.All the flower arrangements and decorations for this cute wedding were done by me.flowers, bouquets hand drawn and hand cut ! paper scraps from old invites were used for the pop-ups.I have drawn some hearts and colored them with water color pencils for background.I have also used fruit packaging net for decoration and vellum for ruffles.The  techniques used are sliding floor pop-up,spring pop-up and the simple pop-up.

I have to thank two wonderfully talented ladies for this card (No marks for guessing !!)
       The card front (misting )was inspired by Yvonne.She does magic with misting ! I am fan of  amazing backgrounds she creates for layouts ,cards and mix-media projects.
         And the pop-up part was totally inspired by Dr.Sonia .She creates magic with pop-ups ! I admire her interactive cards  and  have followed her tutorials for this card . 

Thanks Yvonne and Dr.Sonia !
