Wow, these cards were SO FUN to make!
The inspiration came from the first card in THIS post (Kalyn Kepner for Paper Smooches). I white heat-embossed the mehndi medallions around the center of the card, which I left open for the sentiment. I stamped it with black ink and used clear heat embossing powder to help it to stand out a bit more.
After the embossing was complete, the “messy” fun started! I used the finger-coloring technique I saw on Jennifer McGuire’s blog and added “halos” of pigment ink around the central sentiment. I rubbed off with a dry cloth any extra ink that got onto the embossing. I really liked coming up with the color combinations, and I can definitely see myself doing this again in the future!
