Whacky colors: Purple, orange and green

Ok! I know I am late for this challenge... I made it based on the color challenge at 365 Cards, completely forgetting that it is a daily challenge!! :-((( Anyway, now that the card is ready, I might as well post it.
Oh and one more disaster. I wanted to make a card for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. This week's challenge was based on one of my most favorite movies- My Fair Lady. But since the challenge was to use Embossing on a card, it was a little difficult one for me (I have no idea whatsoever how to emboss properly! No embossing powder available here, remember!)... Did read the tutorials... almost managed one faux embossing, but messed it up and had to trash it. :-( Anyway, just because I wanted so badly to play, I used some embossed paper. Does that count? Well, I don't know!!

Anyway, the only good thing is that I was able to make my second card based on the 2S4U sketch this week. Isn't that awesome!? :-)



My card recipe:
Cardstock: Metallic CS from the DCWV stack, printed paper from Hobby Ideas, purple tinted paper
Stamp: Gift stamp from Hobby Ideas (yeah, the same new set I bought 2 days back)
Others: Crocheted lace, decorative flowers and beads from local craft stores
PS: Please bear my stamping for some time. I am still trying to learn how to layer properly. I will then try and concentrate on the coloring techniques et al.

Regarding the paper... YOu will get a lot of options in FORT and Crawford market. there is a place called bora bazaar. There are two three paper marts. We also get punches there and I guess the paper embosser(like cuttle bug but in the form of double brayer).

Very pretty Smita!! I think the pre-made embossed paper is perfectly fine. . .it didn't say you had to make it, right? LOL! Purple, orange and green is such a strange color combo but your card with those colors turned out very nicely!! It's not such a bad color combo afterall!!

Guess I am in luck today, this is the second cardmaking/stamping blog from India that I have discovered today, all this time I thought no one shared my hobby in India!!
Great card, Love the way you have used all the colors!!

Gorgeous colors and a second challenge card for 2 sketches! I'm really impressed! You said you don't know how to emboss. Are there no Cuttlebugs in India? It's sooo much fun to add texture that way. Hugs, D
