Quick and Easy Indian Themed Cards

Good morning. I have created a couple of very quick and easy makes using Indian themed stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque.

AW Indian Birthday CAS

My first project was created using Indian Textiles and Paisley Elephant stamp sets, directly stamping onto a matte (absorbent) red scalloped card blank (12.5cm square). The border and sentiment were stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with detail gold powder. A little colour was added with dark pink sparkle pen and purple glitter glue.

The background motifs were also stamped with Versamark and then a little mica powder (Jacquard Interference Red) brushed over using a soft make up brush.

AW Paisley CAS

My second card was created with Indian Textiles and Nature’s Paisley stamp sets.

The border was stamped directly onto the card blank (15 X 10 cm) using black StazOn Ink (note: I used StazOn as my card blank had a shiny coating – many other inks don’t dry properly on this surface).

The paisley motifs were stamped onto a black card panel using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Mica Boss powder. This created a tacky finish on which gilding flakes were applied (special glue formulated to use with flakes could be used instead). Finished with little black sequins.
