Easy Crafting with basic supplies

Hi Friends

Here's wishing you all a vibrant, colorful  happy holi. I played with my rangeela water colors and created some backgrounds to wish all of  you. Have used some simple water color techniques and little bit of quilling.

This 'Raining Colors' card is dedicated to Dr Sonia for her generosity in sharing and esp for her this post which deserves a place in any blogging bible.

This Pichkari card is dedicated to Suganthi for her flawless quilling and all that I have learnt from her. This is inspired by her this post.Thank you dear ladies.........

For some reason I have not been able to capture this card well and the colors have played tantrums here. Tried different lighting so difference in colors in pics.This looks much better actually.

I would like to share with my international friends that  Holi is an important festival and is celebrated all over India. The language of colors is Universal and the joy and celebration of colors is a celebration of LIFE itself!!!

Hope you liked these................................all these are painted freehand with water colours on papers from my younger son Ritvic's sketchbook.
