Love 'n' peace

Hello Crafters!

                It's a CAS card and 2nd attempt in this field. I am representing my country by using my flag colours. I am very much inspired with DT's team Challenge #60 Anything Goes Optional Twist - Use your country's colors at 613 Avenue Create.

                For this card I used a masking technique to represent the flag colours. India's Flag has a horizontal design which contains 3 colours - saffron at the top, white in the middle and green at the bottom. A navy blue wheel in the centre representing 'chakra'. I embossed the bottom half of the white ivory CS using a textured impressions folder- Bohemain Botanicals set from Sizzix. At the left corner at the top of the card I stamped doves having a olive branch and giving a message of  "Love 'n' peace"which is hand written on a silver foil using Mungyo blue paint marker. I used a sky blue pastel colour chalk around the doves to give them elegant and soft look.


    Then I wrapped my card with a navy blue satin ribbon. Then I used my butterfly die cut from sizzix hero arts as an stencil and fussy cut it using a piece of navy blue felt. And first time I am using vellum! I stamped the butterfly image on the vellum using versamark embossing clear stamp pad and heat embossed it using Wow Nice ice blue glitter powder. And see the happy result!!! Then I finished it off using a turquoise gem and some navy blue sequences at the centre of the chakra which reflect it very well:).
                Do you want to look inside the card? Here it is..........
