Hiiiiii friends
                  All over exams season and our dear ICR,CC,BGC(cas),CATCHY too decided to take exam .........what a tough challenge everywhere for non stamper like me,but its good to have challenges in life and get out of our shell,I would wish every body who is scared of  stamping like me should participate to try a new challenge . I tried my best ,inspirations were best and I felt like a dwarf  infront of them that my mind was getting confused what to do,but I want to participate in various challenges.Then I realized about the block stamping(jaipur art) ,I used to do as fabric painting in my school college days .All this and that rolling in my mind two three days.
Have you seen the movie '"ARABIAN ADVENTURE"(just co incidently found on you tube ,as me and my hubby daily listen to bhajans on youtube ...I am lover of fantasy so started looking to movie .....and yess when saw movie the riding carpet scene shoot of that era was amazing )
 I do not have much stamps , but the stamp here is RAK from priya shivraj and decided to use it .
         I firstly took card sheet of 15 *15cm and made blocks of 3*3cm,then did alternate colour stamping (colour choice of catchy challenge).After that did piercing to give texture to my card.
.Does'nt it look like carpet design, intricate architecture of jharoka's, weavimg on shawl....etc etc"""""
 I do not how's my creation ,so please leave your comment's ,so I can more to learn and indeed if you find apperciable say that. Hope you all will like it .
Supplies used-white cardstck-local,Distress ink (vintage photo)-crafter corner,Blue ink (colourbox)-jovita,stamp-priya,sentiment stamp from jovita.
