The Festival of Lights - CrafTangles DT

Happy Wednesday!

I'm up on the CrafTangles blog HERE with a couple of celebratory cards for Diwali.  Diwali is the festival of light celebrated by Hindus and Sikhs.


You won't be surprised to learn that I have used 'light' as the theme for both my makes.


For my first card I've tried to highlight the diva lamp, keeping the rest of the card monochrome, bar the yellow border.  I've masked the lamp and used distress inks to create the glow from flame.


On my second card the fireworks are lighting up the sky and I used the appropriately named 'Fireworks' stencil with both distress oxides and heat embossing.  Don't the family look colourful in their traditional outfits?

There's a lot more detail on my makes over on the CrafTangles blog.

See you on Friday!
