birthday mandala...

Hey... popping in with another birthday card.  This time for the current Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge (layering), as well as the current Color Throwdown (which closes in a few hours!), CAS(E) this Sketch and Time Out challenge (celebrations).  When I saw the CTS layout I thought it would be perfect to use with the Concord & 9th Many Mandalas set that I recently purchased.  Since the Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge was to layer I thought layering my stamps would be perfect. I started by inking up the C9 Barnwood Background stamp with a mint colored ink and stamped the background.  I then stamped one of the mandalas on the panel with teal ink.  The panel was then die cut with a rectangle die.  The second mandala was stamped in purple ink and then die cut with the matching die.  I layered that mandala on top, added the sentiment and the dark pink enamel dots.  To help things pop a bit more I die cut a mat from black cardstock.  Adhered everything to a light gray cardstock base.




Have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SSS fog; Stamps:  Concord & 9th; Dies:  Concord & 9th and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Hero Arts, VersaFine Onyx Black; My Mind's Eye enamel dots

Beautiful card, Rosemary! That woodgrain stamp is one of the prettiest I've seen & it's wonderful done in mint--on to my wishlist! Love the mandalas, too--so many great products out there, but can't have them all--haha!

This is lovely Rosemary. I really liked how you layered these dies, especially how one is just off the edge-a very creative touch. Thanks for joining Time Out
