Making Cards, part 2

Next up on the PTI world tour of challenges is India. I based the card on the bold bright colors that you can find in Indian textiles.

I *love* how this card turned out! I wouldn’t normally think of this flourishy stamp set, but once I got the colors right, it was perfect! I have another version of the card that looks like it would work for the Japan challenge 😉 Not to mention a ton of hand-cut flowers (in colors that didn’t work for this card). My hubby actually had the idea of using the curry color as the base – and it was a great choice!

To color the flowers, I stamped with dye ink and then used a wet brush to move the ink around.

The challenge also required some bling. I added little pink rhinestones to the middle of the blue flowers. That touch of pink really helped to unify the card in my eyes.
