Painting the town red :)

Yeah Hello Earthlings…
Its a HI from Venus (I shifted back to my planet since its difficult to live where I lived with all the cannibals around)
What to say …I still couldn’t forget paper crafting 😉
Anyway lets shift the focus from human pathos to some crafting. 🙂
So I finally ventured into the world of abstract cards….a generation of “Werner-ish” cards..I don’t always find them CAS but this genre speaks volumes without much paraphernalia. 
Plus the added obsession with the MS doily lace punch I recently acquired thanks to Craft Adda
I haven’t noticed anyone take the thread route with the punch 😉 but I definitely couldn’t ignore the tiny punched holes …they are too easy to back stitch.

Here’s the complete card 🙂
Pretty Simple ain’t it ?
Guess it should inspire you all to use your scraps..
To embroider on paper..
To use unfit colour combinations and still make them work…
To layer 😀
and To experiment with various card measurements. 
In short ..let your creations be a representation of you. 
Also one of these days I would come up with a tutorial for you guys to draw perfect swirls and DIY rhinestone flourishes. 
The card measures 3″ by 7″ in dimension and uses extremely limited supplies.

Since I don’t own a corner chomper I generally round my corners with my scissors and simply eye-ball the size. 
What I am trying to say is simple …you don’t always need to own a fancy set of tools and even if you do …its absolutely rewarding to come up with something based on old school methods. 
Its just that Khyati and I would love to come up with tutorials that are completely original ..our own experiments and discoveries so it would be awesome to have your support and feedback. 🙂
See you guys soon.. 
Till then keep on shopping 🙂
