My Favorite Things August Release Countdown | Day 4

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things August Release Countdown. For the next five days, we'll be sharing cards and projects featuring all of the new products coming out on August 7th at 9pm EST.
For my card tonight I used the Captivating Mandala Die-namics and highlighted it on an ink blended background. I love our gorgeous range of mandala dies (and stamps and stencils) and this newest one might be my new favourite!

To create the background I used Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Inks and blended them together going from purple to pink. I really love this colour combo lately, and I usually have a hard time creating with purple so it;s been fun going a bit out of my comfort zone. ;)

Once I had the background blended, I trimmed it diagonally along the bottom and adhered it to a white top-folding card base. I then die cut the mandala and trimmed off one edge so it would have a straight edge that I could line up with the edge of the inked panel. I completed the card with a stamped sentiment from the new From Me to You stamp set and a strip of SIlver Sparkle card stock along the bottom.

Thanks so much for joining me for Day 4 of the August release countdown. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog for a closer look at the new products and more ideas using them.
See you tomorrow for more countdown fun!
