Diwali note cards

Hello!
Have you seen the fabulous new Diwali release 
 from CraftAdda?!
These stamps are superb quality and when stamped the images are super crisp!



I have used some of these gorgeous stamps to create a set of  3"x4"notecards...perfect for the festive season!

I used a range of techniques to make these notecards... masking, rubber stamping, watercolouring, emboss resist and heat embossing. 

For this card, I first gold embossed the rangoli pattern from the 'Festival of lights' stamp set. I then masked off half the card using post it tape and used Tim Holtz distress inks  Fired Brick and Dried Marigold to blend the colours. I used a paisley stamp on the coloured background to create some interest. I finished the card with gold embossed sentiment from the same stamp set.


I have used the same technique as the card above, for this card too. Here I have used the beautiful lantern stamp from the 'Festival of Lights' stamp set.


For this card, I stamped the rangoli pattern multiple times on a piece of card stock and watercoloured it using Sakura Koi watercolours. I then trimmed it down, adhered it to the notecard and finished the card with a Gold embossed sentiment.



For the nest three cards I used the emboss resist technique. I first heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and the watercoloured the panels using Sakura Koi watercolours. After they dried, I added a vellum papnel with a gold embossed greeting to finish the cards.









I really enjoyed making these little cards and I hope I have inspired you to pick up the stamp set and make a few of your own!
