Stamps: Uniko - Marvellous Mehndi, All Occasion Sentiments #1, All Occasion Sentiments #2, Simply Said
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Basic Black; Gem; Wink of Stella - Clear
I cut the printed panel slightly smaller than the card, layered it on a black mat and adhered it flat to the card. I created the sentiment panel by stamping the greeting in black on white card, layering it on a black mat, adhering it to the front of the card and finishing off with a tiny gem. I add some sparkle to the areas of the paisley images with a clear Wink of Stella brush. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel stamped a greeting and added a tiny paisley pattern that I fussy cut and adhered. I think black and white, with a touch of sparkle is very glamourous, very elegant, so I'm submitting this one to the current Inkspirational challenge - INK#118.
For my second card I used another sheet of the background paper. This time I used rainbow colours to selectively colour areas in the paisley pattern. I went for a lighter rainbow look:
Stamps: Uniko - Marvellous Mehndi, All Occasion Sentiments #3
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Pumpkin Pie; Vellum; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Clear Embossing Powder
I didn't want to hide the panel, so I stamped the sentiment on vellum and heat embossed it with clear powder. I attached the sentiment at an angle, and then layered the panel on some orange card. On the inside I cut another mat of orange card and on the white panel finished the greeting and added a tiny coloured paisley. As I've used rainbow colours on this card, I'm going to play along with Can You Case It? - CYCI#139.

Wow Debs you have worked wonders here! You must be a techi genius to produce such neat and perfect designs with the digital files. Great colours on the second one too. X
Very beautiful cards Deborah ! I love the pattern paper you've made with this stamp set ! As the sentiment says it on the first card : AWESOME ! The second card is also gorgeous. You would not think that this is the same pattern paper that you used for the second card. The color makes all the difference ! Thanks for sharing.
Deborah, very pretty card! Love how you colored in the paisleys on the pattern paper. Thanks for playing with us at CYCI! Dawn
Beautiful makes Deborah, I haven't received the stamps yet too. I love that you went for a pattern paper look.
These are beautiful - I love the patterned paper you have created and the pops of colour on the second design!
2 great cards Deb - they show just how versatile these Mendip stamps are both monochrome & coloured! X
WOW! Both your cards are gorgeous showcases of the new stamp and oh, how I adore that you've let them be the stars of the stage! The black/white with a hint of sparkle...swooning! So glad you shared this gem in the Inkspirational *Glamour* gallery!
Impressive you created the paper yourself! Thumbs up :D
