Happy Saturday morning, Dynamic Duos fans!
Think of me WARMLY this morning--as you read this, I'll be out caroling with my choir, in -17°C weather...
Here's the challenge for this week, from Dynamic Duos:
I have to admit, I find these "Subtly Yours" weeks the most challenging. I am drawn to more vibrant colours and contrasts, but hey, that's what challenges are all about, right?
I broke out my new Modern Mehndi stamps and dies from Lil'Inker:
Don't they remind you of those Mandala black-velvet posters that were popular in the 70's? I could colour those things for hours...
I inked each image with Memento Rich Cocoa, then used Copic markers in shades of the challenge colours to colour them in. The cards were cut from kraft paper at 3" using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, with a smaller white square inside, for writing.
Here's a closer look at each one:
I used some of the accompanying images on the card bases, to give that henna look.
My fave is this one.
This next one almost looks like paisley. Might have over-done the background stamping.
Card sets are a great Christmas gift idea!
