Mehndi Medallion


Finally had time to ink up my Mehndi medallion Stamps.  I have been entertaining the idea of stamping the large medallion onto a doily.  I didn't know if it would fit.  I think it fits nicely. (My positioning is off a wee bit.)





I decided to use sepia ink which reminded me of the henna tattoos which arecurrently in vogue at the Jersey shore. Sponged off the doily edges with the sepia ink too. I finished it off with a strip of PTI's vintage cream grograin ribbon and two large crystals.  There is a tiny crystal in the middle of the sepia medallion.

The inside of my card is finished.  I don't know if I like it.





I  haven't stamped a sentiment since I am not sure which occassion I would use it for .  Any suggestions?

What a clever idea to stamp it on a doily. I love how it looks and that tiny piece inside too. Just lovely. Why not keep the sentiment off until you need a card? It could be sympathy, BD, thank you, thinking of you...all sorts.

Welcome to Blog World! What a lovely card. Love the stamped on doily idea. Very clever indeed! I often don't stamp a sentiment until I know what the card is destined to be. Often I sell them sentimentless too, which is also popular. Again, congrats on your new blog. I am looking forward to seeing lots more of your wonderful creations.
