Pichkari Blog Hop

Welcome to Pichkari Holi Blog Hop by ICR Team. You can start at ICR Forum and get all the deets on the Blog Hop.

Holi is also called the Spring Festival - as it marks the arrival of spring the season of hope and joy. The gloom of the winter goes as Holi promises of bright summer days. Nature too, it seems rejoices at the arrival of Holi and wears its best clothes. Fields get filled with crops promising a good harvest to the farmers and flowers bloom colouring the surroundings and filling fragrance in the air. 

For me holi is all about the delicacies my mom prepares..
Dahi Wada & Pua are a must on this day...
I am not a big fan of playing holi specially with wet colours...
but I love playing with colours... on paper..  :)

So without any further ado here is the card I prepared for this blog hop...
It is inspired by a card I saw...
I always wanted to make something like that...
& this was the perfect occasion...  
All colourful & cheerful ... Just like this festival of colours & joy...
I have made few changes... I wanted the colours to have very soft edges & mixing smoothly into one another...

For the background I dropped few drops of each colour on a wet white CS, added some water & let them merge into each other...
After that I added a stamped butterfly in black & highlighted some parts with a white pen..
(I love butterflies & for me they signify happiness...)
& then I doodled the swirls with a black gel pen..
