Punched In, ICRE1 - Celebrating Womanhood

Hi all

This card I made for ICRE1 – Celebrating Womanhood.

Close views -

Base is Green Cardstock.
The image is hand painted on canvas using mix media technique (Water colors, Poster Colors, paper cutouts).
Turquoise floral pattern with leaves is hand painted.
Sentiment “Celebrating Womanhood n The Lap of Nature” is handwritten.
Flowers, butterflies and Bird are puffy stickers.
Spiral leaves are Die cut(Thanks Mansi for this).
Small leaves at the bottom of the image are punched.
Red floral cutouts at the top of the two corners of the card are cut out from some PP.

I am celebrating my womanhood through this card. This card is totally the replica of my life as well as inspired by Ash’s video.

Since my childhood I was really inspired by nature, capture nature in my drawings, paintings, sketchings as well as I am inspired by the historical monuments of our India’s rich heritage and love to capture them in my paintings too.

I am hungry as well as crazy about art and my hunger for art grows day by day.

I am proud to be a woman because I can understand, I can feel, I can see each n every truth of life through Art, more than any one else.

Lastly but not the least, I thank Ash of Indian Crafters Room to organize such wonderful event. Thanks Ash.



Wow i love this card! It's so vibrant and the scene is gorgeous. Very inspiring.Fabulous.

Sudha this is a wonderful mixed media project and I love that you have things in it that represent you and what is important to you. I am taking the online "She Art" class from Christy Tomlison right now and this week the video was on incoporating ourselves in the project. And creating a girl that looks like or represents myself. You have done this wonderfully!
