Below is a Henna Tattoo Card which I created one evening just for fun. I used a henna hand design stencil which I bought some time ago in Little India. This stencil is used mainly by Indian ladies to paint their hands before their wedding day.
They use a kind of ink known as henna paste or mehndi which is taken from the root of a plant. It's also used for staining the hair for beauty. Not just for beauty but I understand that it's also for a practical reason - it's said to have a cooling effect against the heat of the sun.
I have tried it many times for my hair and it's great.
Anyway, I love the hand stencil and think that it's great to use it on my card making. So here it is - a henna tattoo card!
The above image will give you an idea how a henna stencil looks like. It is a sticker made of plastic and used for transferring tattoo designs onto your palm by applying henna (mehndi) on it.
I used the right hand stencil for this card. (The stencil on top is for the left hand).
You can use it more than once and I did. I made another Colorful Hand Card with it but mess up when I tried to do a third card. Anyway, here's the Henna Hand Tattoo Card.
You can click on the image to see a bigger version of the card.
It is a fun card to make for just any girl friend whether to say 'Thank you for your helping hand', or just to say 'Hello!', I think it is so appropriate.
Try it if you could get hold of one of these hand template.
