Hi there.

I’m over at Studio Katia blog today sharing one more card using Mandala Flower stamp.

A couple weeks ago I shared a card using this stamp and that card was very elegant and gentle. Also I used mandala there more like a lace element.

For today card I decided to use it in its original, so to speak, meaning, as a mandala. I’m not a big mandala person, as I already mentioned before and don’t know much about them. When I think “mandala” I usually have two types of images in my head. Black and white one, made for therapeutic coloring. And a colorful one (apparently already colored lol).

So I decided to went with colored one.

This card was pretty fast, easy and fun to make. All you need are embossing powders of different colors.

So I simply was stamping the mandala onto a black panel using Versamark ink and pouring embossing powder of one color onto a part of it. Then I was stamping again (I was using my mini MISTI to stamp each time to the same spot) and adding another color.

First I thought that I wouldn’t need to stamp several times, as Versamark ink stays wet for pretty long time. But I didn’t take into consideration that I will be heat setting each color and this would dry Versamark stamping as well. It still was sticky, but a bit less. And I wasn’t getting good coverage when poured powder over.

Of you don’t have MISTI or other stamp positioning tool you still can achieve this look. You just need to add all colors of embossing powder at one time. Maybe using a small spoon, in order to not pour too much powder. As all excess in this case will mix together and most likely you’ll need to discard it.

After I finished embossing the mandala flower I red embossed a sentiment from Thank You So Much Stamp Set.

Then I thought my card was missing something and added dots here and there using fine point of Versamarker and also added powders of different colors to them.

Finally I adhered my panel onto a white card base made out of Solar White cardstock (I use 110 one, it’s nice and thick, live using it for card bases).

I really like this stamp and have a couple more ideas for using it, which hopefully I’ll show later this month :)
