Good morning! I hope your week is going well! I had a long crafting day this past weekend that allowed me to play along with some challenges. Yay!! I was determined to play with this new stamp set from Lil ‘Inkers called Modern Mehndi. My first thought was to stamp it in black and then color it in with Copic markers, but…yuck!! It just looked awful and I was so disappointed. After moving on and working on another project, it occurred to me that perhaps the stamps were meant to be stamped in color rather than in black so I tried that and am SO pleased with the result!!
I tried using a very pretty pattern paper on the card, but everything overwhelmed the flowers so I reverted back to clean and simple white, and those flowers sure do pop off the paper!! It’s not visible in the photo but I gently applied a coating of Wink of Stella to the flowers and flourishes to make them sparkle. It’s so pretty in real life!!
This card was inspired by three challenges: The Card Concept , CAS(E) this Sketch and the always fun Can You Case It. (Lots of “C”s going on there!) I love working with challenges to keep my perspective fresh and build new skills!
Wishing you joy and blessings!
