#58 - Madhubani


A new card, a new idea. The current 'Exotic' theme at the 'Less is More' challenge got me thinking. No stamps that would fit the theme were in my stash. An idea crossed my mind, think 'home'. Although I am settled in Perth, Australia I actually come from India. So, just thought what is exotic about India - its diverse culture, food, variety of art forms. I could do something with that. Thats when I thought of Madhubani art.

Madhubani art is practised in Nepal and Bihar(state in India).Painting is done with fingers, twigs, brushes using natural dyes and pigments and is characterized by eye-catching geometrical patterns. I tried a showcase it a little in my card here

Everything on this card is hand drawn and colored. I used the stamp only for the sentiment.

Entering this card for the 
I hope my card is exotic enough to qualify.

Thank You!!
