STAMPlorations October Challenge reminder

Good afternoon.
Just popping by to remind you that the current challenges over at STAMPlorations have a couple more weeks to run so you've still got time to join in. Here's a card that I made for the Theme and Photo Prompt challenge.

No photo description available.

Looking at the photo, I immediately decided to go for another dark background but this time went with the gold mandala style image on the left of the pic as my inspiration.

Before stamping, I cut an A6 panel of black card, then cut the centre out using one of the Crazy Double Stitched rectangle dies. Placing the card in my MISTI  and replacing the die cut rectangle into the centre, allowed me to stamp the images from Bloomdala Bliss with Versafine but add different EPs to each panel. For the central one I used fine gold the background was clear.
After covering the whole are, I removed the centre panel and coloured it using my Polychromos again.
The sentiment from Bloomful, was stamped and embossed to match the mandalas before popping it up with some fun foam over a base card to which I had already attached the background.

So that's all from me for the mo but please check out the rest of the DT here for lots of great inspiration using STAMPlorations products.


  1. Loving the mandala against the dark background

  2. What a lovely design, very clever!! Love the jewel colours here Julie and the combo of clear and gold EP adds real interest too. We have had a dry day today...yay!! The bottom of our track resembled rapids on Sunday so the dogs had to make do with a soggy walk around our field as it was far too dangerous to cross the water!! Isn't it always the way, oncew the rain comes it just doesn't know when to stop!! xx
