Glittering Mandala

Hello everyone!  Betsy here on the blog today sharing a beautiful glimmering mandala card in blue and gold!  I am using For the Love of Stamps - Precious Jewels:

This is such a beautiful stamp with so many color way possibilities!  I decided to use blue on black and started by cutting a black panel 4" x 5 1/4" and heat embossing the mandala image with gold embossing powder.  I left room for a sentiment but later decided not to use one.

For coloring I used Primacolor Premier Color Pencils.  They really show up well on dark card stock and the colors just pop!  I used:

I started in the middle and worked my way outward.  Blending the colors.  Only one or two areas have the full 6-color blend.  Most are 2-5 colors.  There are 2 places where I didn't color at all.  I always keep my pencils nice and sharp when using them, sharpening often with a hand held sharpener.  A sharp point helps get into the tiny spaces. 

I added a small round gold sticker in the center and then placed a blue jewel on top of that for some added sparkle - because...more sparkle!

I covered an A2 size white card base with blue shimmer paper.  I cut 2 very narrow strips of that same shimmer paper and adhered them across the bottom of the black colored panel with a narrow gold strip in-between.  And that finished my card!
