Don't be shocked, you aren't on the wrong blog haha. My printer is playing up and as I was messing around with the settings I had to print out some colour images.... well that is where I started off (like you do).
One of the kids is doing a project on India - hence the images, and although my in laws are Indian my husband was born and bred in the UK so he is no source of information!! Anyway as I was messing about I stumbled over a blog called Sunday Postcard Art - which as the name suggests you create a postcard sized piece of art (any medium) as long as it is 6" x 4" so that's where this comes in...
I hand drew the mendhi design along the side of the postcard and heat embossed using gold powder (obviously as it is gold), medallion stamps are Insignia- Basic Grey. The blingy bits are what my husband brought me back from India when he took his Mum over to visit her relatives last year, they are usually used as bindi - where (mainly Hindu) Indian women adorn themselves with as below:
Still didn't get my printer sorted, it is printing in colour no problem but the black/text is terrible. I have tried new cartridges and cleaning the nozzle, I have even sworn at and kicked the dreaded machine but nope, it still won't print properly grrr, if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears!
