Some more great news to share... I am on the DT of Catchy Challenges

If you are looking for my ATCAS #24 DT card, please click HERE...


My design exposure and experience is going good and being on a Design Team gives me a tremendous opportunity to learn and create better and better... I was recently taken into the Design Team of the ATCAS and ATSM which was very exciting and surprising for me. I still at times cannot believe it LOL :)
And now to add on to my disbelief and excitement Deepti Stephens (yeah :) she too is Deepti !!) the owner of CATCHY CHALLENGES in India offered me to be on their Design Team.

I was like.... seriously, is this true :D and I said Yes right away :) so here I am with my first creation for Catchy Challenges. They are currently running with the challenge -


In India we celebrate a lot of festivals at this time of the year, So the catchy team decided to begin celebrating the festive season too. You can create anything for the festive season – cards, tags, boxes, gifts, etc. for more details and inspiration from DT you can visit here.  and now to my card... this is for the festival of Lights called Deepawali :) where we light these earthen lamps everywhere. 
For my card, I hand drew"a diya" (an earthen lamp), fuzzy cut and colored it. To create the glow of light from flame I did some masking and inking. At the base below the diya, I made this Rangoli (which is like a design made with dry colors on floor) using a Nestabilities scalloped circle die, I made a semi circle. I then stamped these mini stamps ( from Dipsy Doodling - Ready set grow) around and colored them. Finally, I smeared some golden glitter all over.

Hope you like my card. I would like to thank Deepti to take me on board and also the lovely team for being supportive :)

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment :)
