Diwali diyas!

I have the first of my 2019 Diwali cards here for you today!
It seems as though, diyas are my theme this hand has been drawn only to the various diyas that I had from my Craftangles stamp sets! 
I have not added any sentiments.. somehow, I didn’t feel like doing so.
For the first card, I started out with a die cut square of gold mirror cardstock. I die cut the sunburst (memory box die) and added the panel to a white card panel with 3D foam tape to give it dimension.
I then stamped and watercoloured the diya from the Craftangles  ‘diwali wishes’ stamp set  
and added it to the centre with 3D foam tape.
I just love how it turned out.

For the second card, I started by inkblending Tim Holtz ‘Mustard seed’ ink through the Craftangles ‘Mandala reloaded’ stencil, onto a piece of white cardstock. I left the centre white to create a glow.
I then stamped and watercolored and fussy cut the lotuses (on Craftangles watercolour paper) from 
I then arranged them on the mandala background to finish the card.

For the third card, I started by ink blending Tim Holtz ‘Fired Brick’ and ‘Carved Pumpkin’ onto a square white card stock panel using Craftangles ‘Leaf lace’ stencil. I love how it sits beautifully on a square panel.
Once coloured, I gold embossed a little diya from the Craftangles ‘Diwali Sentiments’ stamp set and fussy cut it and adhered it in the centre of the mandala with 3D foam tape.
Its simple, but I think it packs a punch.
What do you think?

I hope you enjoyed these projects and will give these products a try!
I’d love to hear your feedback.
Thanks so much for stopping by..
Have a nice day!
