Mehndi meets Pinterest..

So I was looking around on Pinterest again....not wasting time as usual...promise! ;) And I found a picture that was amazing! Sad thing? Didn't pin it OR save it! I saw it, left the computer....went straight to make this card and later realized later that the page I was on got closed! Bummer! SO, this card was Pinterest inspired and if I find the pic...I will share!

A fun little find here is that one of my circle Nesties fits PERFECTLY to cut this gorgeous stamp out!  I mean perfect!  Look at that border!!  I colored the insides with different Copics...don't look to close...I went out of the lines...and then I added some White Gel pen!  I cut it out with the Nestie and then matted it with some Ocean Tides!  I used the next size up Nestie to cut the window in the Pure Poppy!  Then I stamped the sentiment and ran that through the Big Shot with the Linen IP!  And actually?  I ran it through twice for more texture!  I also rounded each corner!  Then I popped the whole thing up on foam tape for some dimension!  Last, I added 2 little tiny black pearls!  Of course right?  How could I not?

You will have to let me know what you think about this one!  I love these fun colors and am thinking I really like this card!  This stamp is becoming a fast favorite....I know....I have alot of those don't I?  :)

Glad you could come by today!  Have a great Wednesday!

WOW ~ Laurie, this medallion card is fabulous. Love the cut-out window and Ocean Tides backing with the Pure Poppy card. The simple sentiment and black pearls really make your focal image pop. Super coloring (even if you say you went outside the lines). Love this!
