Greetings friends. The heat has inspired a warm color card challenge (red, orange, yellow). I had to take a picture from the side because I used metallics, and it is really hard to get the shine to show up in pictures.
To make the card, I started with 140lb watercolor paper and added random splotches of red, orange and gold watercolors to the paper. I let the colors blend with each other and then dry completely.
Once the paper was completely dry, I embossed the Mandala design in gold embossing powder. I don't know about you, but sometimes when I want a sentiment to be the focal part of the card, I am a bit at a loss of what to do in the rest of the card space. The mandala designs work really well to provide a backdrop for your sentiment.
As a final touch, I added my saying with black ink and added some layers of cardstock. I made sure to add a layer of gold metallic paper to really bring out the gold embossing and the metallic gold watercolor paint I used.
