Shining Mandala Hugs – January 2019 Stamp of the Month

Hi it’s Tracey here today and I am so excited to be sharing a project with you today using the new Shining Mandala Stamp Set and the matching Shining Mandala Stencil Set! I created my card using both set and I have made a video for you to share my process with you and so you can see how easy it is to line these sets up together to make a stunning card.
To create this card I started out by stamping and white embossing the main image from the Shining Mandala stamp set onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I chose Bristol Smooth because I am going to be ink blending with the stencil set. The colours I chose for the ink blending were all Distress Oxide inks–Broken China, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry. The way the stencils are cut out each layer exposes different sections of the overall stamp and also cover other areas allowing you to blend colours together in some places but also allowing other colours to shine on their own too! Here is the video I created to show you my process…

These colours really blended together beautifully and the stencils lined up over the white embossed linees perfectly giving a lovely texture to the front of the card!
If you look a little closer you can see the clean white embossed lines and also how the colours blended together in some areas creating beautiful new hues.
With this stencil set you could create a mandala completely independently from the stamp and still get all of the clean lines and blending depending on the overall look that you are trying to achieve.
I used the Big Script Hugs die for my sentiment and I added it to the card front with foam tape to really make it pop off the card.
Thanks for stopping in today to create with me and I hope you are inspired to give stenciling mandalas a try! We will see you next time!
