2 cards and the dress picture

Hi guys, another quick share, sharing 2 cards and the much awaited dress of which I had designed for my daughter's concert on Saturday.

The first card was inspired by my friend's saree, she asked if it was possible to make a card inspired by the pattern. In India, bandhini design is very popular, it is a tie and dye method to create patterns on the cloth. It was a challenging card, after trashing 2 cards, I finally got a bit satisfying one for the third.

I chose the colors inspired by her saree, red and black. Chose a red base, and inked up the bottom with black ink, and used a fine point black pen to draw circles, and used a gel pen to add details. All these sarees have some kind of gold or silver border, so added a strip of golden glitter at the bottom.
I used WPlus9 -embroidered bouquet stamp, for the tiny french roses and stamped around the card. The sentiment is also from the same set.

Below is the saree of my friend.

The second card is a water colored background one. I used pentel's watercolors to create a background, and then stamped and fuzzy cut the flowers from Paper Smooches - Botanicals 3 set. Used a corner punch for the front, and added it using a foam adhesive. The sentiment is from Uniko Studio.
