Had henna done at the end of March, it's faded now. Plenty of inspiration though!

ICraft
04-07-2012, 12:25 PM
Glad y'all like the cards - I was so nervous about them.

Awesome cards RoOskie - I really love the 3rd one - what a great idea to have the swirls in the flower petals - I'll have to remember that one - soooo pretty!

moonrose442
04-07-2012, 05:51 PM

04-10-2012, 11:10 AM
Wow Lovely cards Melanies. Cant wait to get them.

son_in_aquarius I can see how that would be hard to do. Going from body to a atc card. I mean its not easy going from card to body, lol hennas sure not like a pen.

RoOskie
04-10-2012, 02:42 PM
Very nice Melanie!

ICraft
04-11-2012, 08:14 PM
Oddly, I'm actually having trouble. Seems I do henna better on a 3D surface! :D

I'm a total novice but have you tried breaking down some elements into individual parts instead of thinking of a design as a whole like you probably do when you are putting it on someone. Just a thought - I'm sure if you've done it before it will come together for you. :)

son_in_aquarius
04-11-2012, 09:27 PM
Oh, I was, but I'm used to working in bands around say an arm or finger...on a flat surface, it just looked odd. So I went outside of the box.

I went and bought a golden brown marker and some pinkish cardstock. It's going much better now! I think some of my block was the stark black and white! LOL.

ICraft
04-11-2012, 10:16 PM
What a great idea - hmm - when I looked at my work I felt that something was "off" (well besides the fact that I am a novice - haha) - one card I did in a metallic platinum color ink I felt was much prettier than the others - perhaps because that card did not have the stark contrast of the white and black like my others did. Wonderful input on your part - I'll be remembering this for sure next time around.

moonrose442
04-11-2012, 11:52 PM
Ya its funny how colored paper works well with the henna designs.

He loves to just sit on my sons shoulder like that. So cute.

my 14#tabby boy does this too. you should see the scars on my back where he holds on!!! he is big/long enough to wrap around the back of my neck so he is on both shoulders. he insists upon it when he is very tired, and gets really grumpy if I will not let him. It has to be that or he HAS to be on my lap or I have to walk him with him on my shoulder like an infant. His name is Pookie, and he is!!

catladybj
05-19-2012, 06:41 PM
my cards are done, I will get them to the PO sun or mon-I can take them sun but they will not go out til mon

Well the job has come home with me most nights. This week is the first week I've got 2 days off, Split but theirs 2 of them. :D and and and I only work 8 hours on most of the days. :D
so I have to say Im sorry if Im out of it.
I will try and trade any late cards with late cards.

catladybj
05-22-2012, 02:25 AM
I hate it, have my cards done but never got to the PO, and never tho to mail from home! course it was way past the mailmans time before I realized I was not going to get toPO before it closed. I have just had a 'hurrier I go the behinder I get' week. and all at home/ have been working on different art, and I swear, I have dropped and cut and lost more little bits than I can count. not to mention no less than 2 cats, sometimes 3, bound determined to get on my lap or the table and supervise! ACK!!!
will get my cards in my gallery-have to reduce the sizes tho.

moonrose442
