A doily or a mandala.

At times like this we all need to stay calm and accept that life is different right now ... both complicated and simpler   - depends how you look at it!

This uses the cling-film technique to colour both the background and the card the doily is diecut from.

I used gold and silver acrylic paint with some iridescent medium mixed in.  The sentiment is stamped on kraft card.

Die: Craft Wise
Sentiment: Hot off the Press
Pearl, gems
