Today I am playing with two of the Craftangles September release stamps sets,
For my first card, I decided to create a background using the mandala in the 'Diwali wishes' stamp set. First, I used my Misti to stamp the goddess Lakshmi image from the 'Shubh Laabh' onto smooth white card stock. I then created a mask using 'Mudra' masking paper and masked out the image. I then used Tim Holtz 'spiced marmalade' distress oxide to stamp the mandala background.
I then used my Sakura Koi watercolours to colour in the background so that the mandalas would pop further.
I intended to keep the Lakshmi image black and white, but, decided to add a bit of colour. so I decided to leave the lotuses white.
I finished the card by adhering some self adhesive gemstones and and a sentiment from the set.
I just love how this card turned out!
