Zen Mandala

Last week I was very lucky to win some stencils on the Funky Fossils Facebook Group.  I had three stencils of my choice and Sara also enclosed a lovely birthday stencil too.  I don't often use stencils, probably because I only have a couple of small flimsy ones, but think I'll be using them a lot more now I have these new ones.

I kept this card simple as I wanted to show the lovely Zen Mandala stencil.  I used pink pearlescent ink to stencil the design onto a piece of white card, trimmed the edges, rounded the corners and attached it to the card front.  I die cut the sentiment twice from dark purple card, layered the two die cuts and attached them across the centre of the mandala.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Funky Fossil 'Zen Mandala' stencil
     Crafts-Too 'Happy Birthday' die
     Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink
     Snippets of dark purple pearlescent card and white matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Birthday Card Challenge - A Stencil Background
     Allsorts - Something New (my new stencil)
     Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge - Anything Goes
     Moving Along With The Times - New (my new stencil)
     NBUS - January Challenge (my new stencil)

I have three FF stencils too and they are really lovely designs and stencils are so good now that they have become much more popular. This mandala is beautiful as the main image and love the large die cut sentiment over the top Kath and the pearlescent pink is very pretty. x

Congrats on your win, Kath, and well done getting right down to using one of your new stencils! I love Sarah's stencils and love this mandala done up in pearlescent pink with the dark purple sediment! Good choice of sediment die because the font doesn't block any of the pretty mandala! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Keep safe and take care! Hugs, Darnell
