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 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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Geez, everytime you do one of these stamp series, I have to buy the stamp. Think I'm going broke but I'm having so much fun, I don't care. By the way, your card is lovely.
