Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to share my new Mandala Bold Prints stamped card. Here’s the stamp…it’s so intricate and delicate. I knew I’d have to play around with color.
The first thing I did was drip the red and yellow Hero Arts liquid watercolors onto watercolor paper. After using some water to move the color around, I let it dry. Then I stamped this mandala and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. After that, I added Nuvo drops in different colors in certain spots.
Lastly, I added a dragonfly die cut in black. It reminded me of stained glass windows and I wanted the color to show through, so I didn’t add anything to the wings. Vellum might have worked okay, but I liked it fine like this.
I fussy cut around the circle and another piece of cardstock to make the card…and it seems a little larger than a standard card, so I’ll have to find a square envelope for it if I’m mailing it. This would be fabulous as a gift bag decoration, because it’s large and so pretty.
I have a bunch of these stamped and embossed in different colors so I can experiment with different media. You might see it show up again in another project!
