Guest Designing for PABD - Part 1

Hello friends Today I am very excited to share my post as Guest Designer for Peek-A-Boo designs.I won their february challenge and got this opportunity. I would like to Thank Vidhushi Saraf and Entire Peek-A-Boo Designs team for giving me this opportunity .

Clear stamps from Peek-A-Boo designs
I received these stamps from PABD and I am proud to say that these are Made in India , high quality stamps. I enjoyed using them with different inks and the results were crisp n clear images.
I made bunch of cards using them and sharing them in two parts to avoid a lengthy post. As Holi festival is approaching soon I am sharing holi themed cards first.

Happy holi watercolored card
I am sure my Indian friends must have recognized the flowers .They are called Palash in Hindi and aptly called Flame of Forest in English .They are first to bring the news of coming holi festival and it is said Nature also plays holi through them. I drew the flowers and colored them using watercolor pencils.

Ink smooshed background
Ink smooshing in the background. Don’t you love that big,bold sentiment ? The twine is Gift from Yvonne and the fresh green card stock from Sathya.
Next card is simple one layered card .

One layered Happy holi card
Stamped the happy holi by inking the stamp with various inks in Rainbow colors.Then misted it with water to get the colors mix a bit.

Multi ink stamping
  Masked the sentiment using post-it note and then played with watercolors to create a fun background.
