Diwali cards for Indian soldiers

Hello!
For my DT post for CraftAdda today, I am using the fabulous Diwali stamp sets from Craftangles.
I was encouraged by my dear friend Neha Gala  who is collecting cards to send to our brave soldiers who could not go home for Diwali.
I was pushed out of my comfort zone, but, I am really thrilled with the cards I made.

For this card, I started by creating a background using the large diya in the 
I heat embossed the background with Craftangles clear embossing powder. I then blended the background using Memento  Cottage Ivy and Memento Tangelo inks. Once blended, I flicked some water onto the background and lifted off some colour. 
I then placed a scrap sheet of paper over the panel and ironed off the embossing powder.
I then gold embossed the sentiment on a strip of vellum and attached it to the card panel. I used three star shaped buttons in the tricolours as an embellishment.
I finished the card panel by placing it on a kraft card base.

For this card, I started with stamping the fireworks stamp in the Indian tricolour on a piece of white cardstock cut with Simon Says Stamp’s stitched rectangle die.
I added a gold embossed sentiment on a vellum panel and added a watercolured diya. I finished the card by placing the card panel on a kraft card base.
For this card, I started by using TimHoltz sun rays stencil and colouring in with Memento Cottage Ivy and Tangelo inks.
I then added a gold embossed sentiment on vellum and a watercoloured diya. I then finished the card by placing the panel on a kraft card base.
For this card, I created a dark sky background for the very first time!!!! I am so thrilled with the way this card turned out.
I clear embossed the fireworks and then blended the background using memento and Tim Holtz inks.
I then flicked some water onto the background.
I then stamped, watercoloured and fussy cut the small diyas from 
I added the tricolour panel at the bottom of the card to anchor the diyas and stamped the sentiment onto the panel.

I hope you enjoyed this post and will be inspired to create a few diwali cards of your own.
Thank you so much for stopping by…
Have a great day!
