Toran with a twist

With Diwali nearing and cleaning at home on, how can we not change our torans?! This time we decided to make one ourselves!

We combined the Papericious September challenge Festivities and Celebrations and Peek-a-boo-designs’ Art recipe Challenge 11. We also catered to Lulupu The Craft Lounge’s October Challenge- Bling a Ding With a Stamping Twist. We used Papericious Papers and from Peek-a-boo designs’ art recipe we used the main ingredients- 1/4 cup red, 1/4 cup gold and number 1; for our garnish we used the stamp to create our background and a dash of glitter.

For our toran we used the Red Damask Paper Collection from Papericious and the back of some paper pieces from left over . We coloured the plain ones gold, and stamped and heat embossed using the Swirly Time stamp set and gold powder. Our focal elements have been stamped from the Indian Motif Stamp Set. Using paisleys we created diyas and the number 1 became our wick! ย We die cut the paper using the Fishtail Banner Dies.

We alternated our red and gold and used some gold tissue and red ribbons to hold our toran together.
