I created two cards, my first card involves, stamping, masking and inking where I have created a look in which the focal image is colorful and dimensional and rest is black and white.


For my second card, I did some paper piecing, this one uses patterned paper completely. Additionally, I have used the STAMPlorations Vignette - Tree silhouette stamp set

  6. I so like the way you combined the sets to make the landscape with the trees and houses. It really gives your card dimension. Along with a tag to highlight the focal image, awesome details and the special treatment for the other one by paper piecing and PP:)))))

  42. Both cards are beautiful. First however made the biggest impression on me. As if I saw the world through the eyes of an experienced hard man. Only his fragnemt is colorful and beautiful, the rest is a sad reality. That is why it is so important to go out and paint the world of others, those whose fate touched painfully.
    Deepti Thank you for this card and a reminder that we are here in order to bring joy and happiness to others.
    hugs,

  45. Oh I LOVE these!! Again, you really know how to tie in your cards with the sentiments; they're not just an after-thought. Love how you depicted "memories" with a spotlight of color. The muted colors of the last one really work well together too.
