Inspirational Ocean Mandala Card | Sandpaper Road

Isn’t this card just lovely? I love the peacefulness of the Mandala image mixed with the turbulence of the water.

YOU can make this card, too! It’s easy!

I only used a few supplies… a sheet of paper from the 6″ x 6″ Summertime Picnic paper collection by Craft O’Clock; the Stormy Sea Border stamp and the Ocean Frame Sentiments stamp set both by Technique Junkies, and some embossing ink/powder and a few markers. That’s IT!

First, I stamped the water image and colored it in with alcohol markers. There are LOTS of ways to color in this Stormy Sea Border stamp. You can see more coloring varieties in my video tutorial:

After coloring, I fussy-cut out the top of the ocean image. Then, to save time, I just tore off the bottom of the ocean image. Using some Scor-Tape, I adhered the water to the piece of patterned paper.

Next, I cut the patterned paper to 4″ x 5-1/4″. Using VersaMark ink, I stamped one of the Ocean Frame Sentiments in the center, sprinkled white embossing powder on top, and heat-set the powder. Then, I mounted the whole piece on top of a white sheet of cardstock and then mounted THAT on a brown card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.

For a finishing touch, I added some bling stickers I had in my craft stash.

That’s it!
