This month Bev has chosen Marvellous Mehndi - an absolutely beautiful and incredibly easy stamp set to work with!
I'm starting well within my comfort zone colourwise and have stamped, coloured and chopped up the large mehndi stamp from the set.
The background is just fabulous and much as I'd like to say I created it myself I have to own up and say it's from a really beautiful paper pad.
Stamps: Uniko, Marvellous Mehndi
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Promarkers, amethyst, purple, cardinal red
Paper: First Edition Paper, Wild Flower
My next card is something much more challenging for me and uses heat embossing and blended distress oxide inks. The all over pattern is also not my typical way to craft. So a bit of an all round experiment!
And I have to say those distress oxides are just as easy to blend as I've read they are, but not really believed. The colours are so pretty too!
Stamps: Uniko, Marvellous Mehndi & a sentiment from a retired Uniko set
Inks: ranger distress oxide, worn lipstick, faded jeans, cracked pistachio; Veresamark, clear
Embossing: Ranger superfine, white
I'm finishing up today with a card that is far more typical of my style - one layer, purply pinks and CAS.
And I've used a couple of the smaller stamps from the set as well as that beautiful big one. A trio of stamps to surround the sentiment and my trademark curved corner.
Stamps: Uniko, Marvellous Mehndi & All Occasion Sentiment #3
Inks: SU, berry burst, fresh fig
Well that's all from me today. I hope I've convinced you that this stamp set needs to be in your stash.
