ICR presents Pichkari Holi Blog Hop!

Hi Friends,

Welcome to Pichkari Holi Blog Hop by ICR Team. You can start at ICR Forum and get all the deets on the Blog Hop.

<a href="" Target="_blank">Holi On Wikipedia</A>. Holi is also called the Spring Festival - as it marks the arrival of spring the season of hope and joy. The gloom of the winter goes as Holi promises of bright summer days. Nature too, it seems rejoices at the arrival of Holi and wears its best clothes. Fields get filled with crops promising a good harvest to the farmers and flowers bloom colouring the surroundings and filling fragrance in the air.

For me holi is childhood,holi is memories and holi is super fun...I remember during my childhood in Bihar..we used to have very grand holika dahan and on holi day it was soo fun to play with friends.We used to eat loads of yummy snacks and sweets...miss those days..

Here is my project for holi..I have used a DIY texture paste and pie lane stencil to make the damask design. Then  I have inked it a bit.Used a handmade polymer clay button,mirror stickers and some metallic brads to embellish..

If you are here from Bhavana's blog then you are on the right path. If not, you can go to the ICR Forum and start from there.

Here is the list of bloggers,

Enjoy Peeps! and HAPPY HOLI!

ICRC27-One layer card with repeated stamping

Hi Friends,

We are back with our another challenge at ICR.

This time our challenge is-

Create a One Layer card and the TWIST is to have repeated stamping on it.

Some Key Points:

1) One stamp has to be stamped at least twice and other stamps can be used as well.
2) One layer card - it is just the card base, you cannot have any layers on it. No additional card stock for sentiments or any thing else.
3) No Embellishments allowed.
4) You can create texture on the card base by doing Embossing (Wet or dry), piercing holes in the card base etc.
5) Coloring of stamped images are allowed.
6) No paper piecing - that is cutting out a stamped image and adhering it back on the stamped image on the card.
7) No Glitter allowed.

Here is the challenge pad for u-

  Here is my take on the challenge..
I have used masking technique in both cards.In blue card I have just cut out a window from a print paper and rubbed just silver ink and then stamped with bamboo leaves and few flowers .Finished it with some piercing and white gel pen dots.In cream card I cut out a handdrawn butterfly and did some distress ink(wild honey)blending.Then stamped bamboo stalks and also misted it a bit.
