Man­dala marvels

Quick Cards Magazine - - Quick Fixes -

I love the in­tri­cacy of henna and would like to in­cor­po­rate it on my card de­signs. Have you seen any pat­terned stamps or dies I could use? Ameera Ma­lik, Birm­ing­ham

Vicky: I think the Block­wal­lah range of wooden stamps is per­fect for this, Ameera. Block­wal­lah stamps (avail­able from Cre­ate and Craft) are hand carved in In­dia and the de­signs are all In­dian themed. Use the in­tri­cate pais­leys or man­dalas to de­sign your own background or the ele­phant or lo­tus flower as a fo­cal point for your card. An­other stamp set that I like is the Lil’inker Mod­ern Man­dalas, a set of three man­dala im­ages per­fect for colour­ing or heat em­boss­ing. There’s a co­or­di­nat­ing set of dies too that will cut out the man­dala im­ages with ease. The man­dala stamps and dies are avail­able from www.sev­en­hillscrafts.co.uk.

Add an ex­otic touch to your card de­signs with man­dala stamps
