Diwali Henna Sparkle

Hello my crafting friends, hope this finds you all safe and well, It's getting a lot colder here now of a night and I know some of you have had snow, let's hope its brief lol! Though I have to admit I do like to go out and play in it!!! A big kid at heart.

Some of you may know it was Diwali week last week, the festival of light and we have two Hindu teachers at our school so I made them each a card.

This one I made for Sujahta an English teacher, I knew I wanted to use Sheena's Indian products and I wanted it lovely and bright so I started by inking up a piece of card using Crushed Olives DI, I then ran it through the embossing folder  Henna and re-inked over the embossed pieces, I then coloured in the flower with Aqua Markers. I coloured in some of the edges using Spectrum Noir new Sparkle pens to add a touch of glitter too.

I stamped the flower  Henna onto some White card and cut it out the best I could then coloured it in with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and put this to one side to dry.

On more of the White card I stamped the decorative edge using my Versamark Ink Pad then heat embossed with Gold embossing powder, I had to repeat this process in order to get the lengths I wanted to fit round the card as its only a small stamp. I then cut it out the best I could using a sharp craft knife.

I matted the embossed background onto some Black card and then onto the base White card, I attached the decorative edge round the four sides of the card trying to match them up so they were the same both sides. I then attached the stamped flower I had cut out using 3D glue.

I made a simple sentiment and inked round with the Crushed Olives DI to match the card and there you have the finished card.
