Oh is it not a coincidence that the card I decided to post about says Happy 2013 :P in the first picture itself. How very opportune :)
So here's wishing all you people a very Happy Year 2013. Hope its a positive, cheerful, healthy and safe one. Here's hoping for a great year ahead that sees you achieving your dreams and desires and rids you off of your mistakes.
I decided to make a list of things I wish to achieve this year but I make it every year and by december I just crumble the paper and throw it in the bin since most of it remains on the paper . So I decided to make a mental note of my resolutions this year. To start with .. this card...
My roomie wanted to give it to her Fiance..and I tell you ..this is one of those cards which had numerous layouts drawn, things were placed and replaced, there were plans made and dumped and humph...
Yes I have a cute digi stamp (courtesy Shery K designs) but it seems laser printers aren't the best thing when you wish to water colour the image so I drew it :) and used OHP marker to outline and distress inks to colour. I also used Sakura glaze to colour at some places in order to highlight few areas like the very aubergine flowers :P. Since the die cut is textured it was a challenge to colour the picture.
The sentiment is handwritten too on the small banner below the cute kids. The numerals are courtesy Itsy Bitsy :) which have been pop dotted. Although I love them but I would love them to be more crisp around the edges and not that frayed.
Aww...I did punch the border of the brown cardstock but its hardly visible. To come to think of it ...it was useless.
Taking cues from Priya :D I have a matching envelope (I hope she knows how much she inspires me).
Waiting for your comments and feedback.
Happy New Year once again all of you..
I have been content with brownies :P and no celebration but I wish you all a huge party.
P.S. I shall put up videos and tutes for you as soon as I get few things sorted. (Mental Resolutions)
