I die cut a square of water colour card and used my MISTI to position the mandala in the centre of the panel. I stamped the image in Versamark and heat embossed it with white powder. Then I had lots of fun using my Zig brushes and an aqua brush to colour it. I got the inspiration for the pastel colours from the photo challenge at Inkspirational - INK#128. I'm also submitting to Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge - HLSWC#02. I finished the panel by adding a simple greeting in black ink. I layered the image on some pale green card and attached it all to a square card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale green design paper and on the white card I added a bold greeting along with a few more images from Marvellous Mehndi.
After I put the card together I decided that it needed a little sparkle. I used my clear Spectrum Noir brush to add some sparkle to the mandala - you can just about see it in the close-up photo below:
