Henna Patterns-Take 2

Happy Saturday, friends! 
Have you checked out all the new STAMPtember release from Simon Says Stamp?
I know it can be overwhelming seeing so many awesome sets. You can always imagine what you would do with certain stamp sets...at least, I confess that I do that a lot! LOL.

I have come up with a few cards with one of my favorites from this release.
Here is my first take on this stamp set with a video (don't forget to subscribe to my YT channel).

The "Henna Patterns" is definitely challenging the stampers to get creative.

In this card, I basically came up with a simple frame. With the help of MISTI, I was able to stamp a very symmetrical design.

As you can tell, I had lots of fun adding the rainbow colors.The Kuretake Watercolors offers so many great colors.
Thank you

I decided to keep the center focus clean and white. This way, it is visually pleasing to the eyes and yet it is still colorful. I hope this post helps you getting some idea about "Henna Patterns".

You can check out the entire release here.

I would appreciate that you use my affiliate links to make your purchase.
This will also encourages me to continue to run an active and inspiring blog.
