Labyrinth of Love

Hello friends.
Today is my third posting for Elizabeth at Softpencil as a GDT and this week we were asked to use a gorgeous Digital Mandala stamp called Labyrinth of Love which is created by Elizabeth's very talented sister Natalia.  You can see more of these wonderful Mandalas at Softpencil so hop on over and take a look.
I used the sketch and Sunday Sketch and Stamp which I have shown below:
I printed out the mandala image several times in order to be able to layer it up on my card as you can see in the piccy below.
The image is coloured with three different shades of purple and one yellow promarkers.  You will notice that my backing paper is made up of several of the mandala images made smaller and printed out in black on pale purple paper to compliment the colours I have used for the main image.  The mandala backing paper is matted onto dark purple card.
I cut out four squares with my cuttlebug and added a flower shape to the middle of each one (again I used my cuttlebug to cut them out) and then added a soft lilac gem to the middle of the flower shape. 
I cut out six of the small hearts from one of the mandala images and used these for the two corners of the card.  I used a purple ribbon to go across the middle of the card.
Now that I have posted the card I can see that I missed off the sentiment - hey ho!!
So there you go, my latest GDT creation for Softpencil.  If you scroll up to my I Love Digi post you will see that I have also used this Mandala image in my DT project for their new challenge which also starts today.  Using different colours really makes the mandala stamp look totally different don't you think.   Next week is my last week and I will be back next Thursday with such a cute little image you won't want to miss it!!  So see you then!!
