"Intrigued" is probably my reaction to the beauty of intricate Mehndi designs. Henna is applied to the skin, staining it temporarily. It is worn for weddings and other festivals, usually by women from India and Pakistan. It is quite beautiful to see up close. The stamp set I used for my card is a take on Mehndi design but in a less intricate way.

Such a gorgeous work of art. I happen to be very fond of Watercolor, you have done it so beautifully. Thank you so much for playing along with us at PPA this week.ReplyDelete
Wow, love your color combination and the design of the card is fantastic...the background watercoloring looks so dimensional, almost like the navy blue is behind a green panel. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
