Where Creativity Meets C9:: Challenge 10:: Layers

There's a new Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge and it's all about creating a layered project showcasing the amazing products available at Concord & 9th as this challenge is dedicated to the innovative stamp company and their products!

There are so many beautiful stamp sets available at Concord & 9th. I chose to work with the absolutely gorgeous Many Mandalas for its unique properties to make your own Mandala by ink layering the pieces of the mandala.

I started with a beige colored pigment ink stamping the outside layers of the mandalas, then added a layer of the next interior size with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink, and then repeated the steps until the mandalas were completed. I then added a touch of water to distress the mandalas, as well as some splatter of Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink. I finished with a sentiment from the Many Mandalas Stamp Set. I adore the mix of fonts! I finished the card with a layer of clear sequins and some jute twine.

The challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Concord & 9th and one lucky random entry will receive a $25 gift certificate for a Concord & 9th shopping spree. The favorite entry will be asked to guest design for a future challenge! The challenge runs until June 29th, so there is plenty of time to pull out your favorite Concord & 9th stamps and die and create an one layer project. Plus, new Concord & 9th products were released TODAY and they are fantastic!
