2021 Topic 6 Mandala Mix with EGL {by Kate Yetter}

  2021 Topic 6: Mandala Mix

With a watery looking Infusion based background and lots of embossed texture, Kate has created mandalas with a creative twist. There's so much depth on the stacked layered mandala focal points which draws your eye into this beautiful card.

Hi everyone, Kate with you today, and I'd like to share with you a mixed media card.

I love layering stamps so the mandala theme was perfect.

I started off with Infusions in the background.

To add texture, I embossed fish on the background.

Next, I picked out stamps that I thought would layer well and stamped them out in black ink and embossed some in gold.

I felt the background needed a little more texture so I added some stamping and embossing in blue using some Ink & The Dog stamps.

Lastly, I layered a few of the stamps as a focal point.

I really enjoyed making this Mandala themed card. This was the second card I made as the first one didn't turn out. I really wanted to make a large mandala but I liked the background on this one and wanted to show it off so I used a smaller mandala. I want to give this theme another try but with a larger focal point. I hope you will give this a try and play around with different sized stamps to make a mandala.

Until Next Time,

I love your infusions backgrounds and how you always leave some white bits for contrast.
