Mandala hello....!!

Embossed Mandalas

Hi everyone...

It's Ashlee here with you today, have you seen the super awesome new release in the CAS store?! I couldn't resist playing with the new Mesmerizing Mandalas for my latest card...

As soon as I seen the Mandalas I knew they would be absolutely perfect for using with Embossing powder so my idea grew from that...

- Using some teal cardstock I cut a rectangle piece and then inked half way up using some Catherine Pooler ink in the shade Aquatini 
- Once the ink was dry I rubbed over the inked piece of card with an anti static powder tool and stamped the mandalas I wanted to use with WOW! embossing ink
- I then heat embossed with Metallic gold sparkle embossing powder
- After the mandalas were all heat set I fussy cut them out
- using the english hello out of the mesmerizing mandalas set I stamped it around the edges of the largest mandala where it fits just perfectly
- Added the mandalas to the card base with some foam tape for dimension
- Finished it off with some sequins 

- Always make sure the ink is dry on the cardstock before doing your embossing otherwise your embossing powder will stick all over the place
