Inspired by henna

Front View
As the title suggests ,design on this card is inspired by Indian Henna designs. Made this card for Challenge set by Indira as part of Mega celebration on her blog Arty Sorts, the challenge is to make a new year card and use Indian motif/ motifs on it.I went very traditional way :)

Cone painting
For the panel I combined cone painting and loose water coloring . I made a paste using ceramic powder,white glue and white acrylic paint and filled it in a plastic cone, just like henna cones and then drew the design on water color paper.

After it dried completely I did some loose coloring with yellow water color and Lindy's Stamp Gang  mist- Ramblin Rose bud  attached the water colored panel on shaped card base with foam Tape.

Drew the sentiment on vellum with same cone and after it dried attached it to the panel.Colors on the are inspired by current Runway Inspired Challenge - ric #74 Escada
