Thank you so much

  Hi everyone!  I'm up on the Pawsome Stamps blog today sharing this card I created using the Mandala Stamp Set!  This card is so easy to make, and comes out so beautifully!

Mandala Stamp Set and Mint Chip Sequin Mix by Pawsome Stamps #pawsomestamps #handmade

To start this card I die cut a piece of smooth white cardstock, stamped the mandala image, and gold heat embossed.

I blended on Distress Oxide Inks Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers, Prize Ribbon, and Black Soot.  I then wiped the ink off of the embossed image.  I splattered gold watercolor paint onto the panel and set it aside to dry.

Next, I die cut a black sentiment banner, stamped the sentiment, which is from the Mandala Stamp Set, and gold heat embossed.

I assembled my card using black cardstock for the base, and adhered the sentiment banner with foam tape for some dimension!
