Im playing with Craftangles stamps today to make some ethnic cards with some watercolour backgrounds.

These cards are really simple and easy to make, so I hope you will give them a try.

For the first card, I created a background by ink smooshing Tim Holtz 'Salty Ocean' distress ink.
Once dry, I heat embossed the sentiment ( from the Craftangles 'Diwali Wishes' stamp set) in gold.
I finished the card, by adhering the panel to a light blue card base.

for the second card, I created a background by ink smooshing Tim Holtz 'Picked Raspberry' distress ink.
I then added a gold embossed diya on vellum and a sentiment from the Craftangles 'Diwali sentiments' stamp set.
I adhered this panel to a white card base to finish the card.

For the third card, I created the ink smooshed background using 
Tim Holtz 'Peacock feathers' distress ink.
I then used the Craftangles 'Warli borders' stamp and 
I added some jute string and adhered the panel to a black card base to finish the card.

I hope you enjoyed these cards as much as I enjoyed making them.
