Guest designing at Paru's card Making Challenge

Hello Crafty peeps,

Happy Friday everyone. I'm super excited today. Two reasons beyond my happiness. First thing is today my brother is getting engaged. Ohh wow, such a special day for me and my family. Secondly, omg I'm super thrilled to be guesting at Paru's card making challenges. It was the first and only challenge I participate in during the early stage of my crafting journey. I could say that's where a silk thread jewellery designer inspired to be  turned into a cardmaker. I was invited to guest design for august challange as i won in her previous challenge( July month's Birthday challange).

Paru mam is such an amazing designer and her works are super fabulous. Thank you so much mam for having me. That's so very kind of you.

Current challenge theme at her blog is 'Family' and here is my take,

As Rakshabandhan is around the corner, I thought to make a card for the same. I made an illustration depicting my kids. I took photo inspiration from Google for the same. 
Below is my sketch for your reference.

Rakshabandhan (the festival of Rakhi) is celebrated to cherish the bond of brothers and sisters.

To make this Rakhi card, I took A2 size white cardstock and created the wall and floor scene using patterned papers.

I sketched my figures, watercoloured them and adhered them on the front panel using foam tape and I gave washi tape to the little girl to mount her little cute brother over the wall for his mischievous behaviour 😉😉 I finished the card with a handwritten sentiment.

For the tag, I ink smooshed the background using bubble art technique. I fussy cut it and added a handmade flower ( from Itsy Bitsy store ) for the Rakhi and a handwritten sentiment to complete it. 

Hope you all inspired to join in the challenge. 

I'm playing along the following challanges,

Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting.
