Hi friends,
thanks for all your wishes,i am feeling much better now except.But yeah this week the power supply here in chennai is crazy,can you imagine days without 4 to 5 hours current supply in this techno world??and thanks to the humid climate its sweating like anything and its totally draining both physically n mentally.Because of all these my mojo totally went away from me,but thanks to mojo monday's beautiful sketch.It brought back it some what,and i badly wanted to give it a try.

Did i tell you all?,yeah i am totally addicted to stamping and love experimenting with it.It really does give a professional look to the card,than any other techniques.Don't you love this combination,yellow n brown?very rich indeed.The solid yellow paper is from basic grey paper pack(it has some lovely shades of solid papers).I have embossed it and distressed with brown shades of inks.The image is heat embossed with black pigment ink n clear embossing powder.The sky too made in brown shades to match the card,hope it doesn't look bad:))

Pattern paper:Basic grey
Stamps:Inkadinkado n hero arts sentiment
Dies:Spellbinders plain circle n PTI mat stack
Punch:EK success edger note
Distress ink:Tea dye,walnut stain n wild honey
Embellishment:Organza ribbon,ric rac n buttons from autumn leaves
