Hi there everyone and welcome to the A Taste of India Blog hop! The line consists of 6 stamps sets and 6 embossing folders (see the sneak picture at the end of the post)… You should have arrived here by way of my friend, Jingle! Today I’ve got a card to share with you all that features the Mandala stamp set from the A Taste of India line. I colored the gorgeous flower with different colors of Liquid Pearls (A first for me… It gives a great texture)… Then I cut out the flower. Before adhering it to the base, I decided I need to jazz up the background watercolor style so I used some Fired Brick distress ink and dabbed and swished with a paintbrush until I got the look I wanted… Here’s a closer look:
