Hello and welcome! I got totally inspired by the recent ‘Wreath Builder’ ideas from Jennifer McGuire. There have been 3 videos in the series so far, and each one of them has been so inspiring! So, I got around to making my own stencil (using plain cardstock) for this purpose, and using a MISTI for my assistance, I made this card –
Its completely a CASE of Jennifer’s card! I used the little leaf stamps from Simon Says Stamp Nutty About You stamp set. All the colors are either brown, red or green. I just stamped without thinking much, just filling space however I felt. Initially my idea was to make the shape seem like a flower with 6 petals, but as I kept stamping, it turned out into a more of a Mandala. So, mandala it is!! 🙂
Once I finished the mandala, I trimmed the card panel, stamped a few dots in yellow, added dots of gold on them and lines in black on some of the leaves. I foam mounted this on a cardstock, on which I had blended some dark red ink. The sentiment is from Neat & Tangled Oak Leaf. I stamped it, then trimmed the small strip and added a frame around it by blending ink, then adding frames of gold and black by drawing lines using gold gel pen and a black fine marker pen. For embellishing, I used three colorful flower sequins – they shine red, gold and brown! So pretty!
With this card, I am joining the following challenges –
