I have always been fascinated by hamsas and all of the gorgeous designs that other artists have made in them. I thought it might be fun to create my own doodled design for the front of a greeting card.
The Hamsa Hand in all faiths is a protective sign. It brings it’s owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. Those are all great sentiments to add to any card!
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. This post also contains affiliate links. The opinions I share are solely my own.
I had my husband draw a hamsa on the computer which I printed out on white cardstock. I then cut out the shape with scissors. Another option would be to find some clipart online that you can print.
The first design I added to the hamsa was an eye. Most hamsas include one and the Many Faces stencil was perfect for this. I used a Sharpie pen to trace the eye shape and then filled it in.
The next stencil I used was the Loopy Flower Fragment. Again, just tracing the shapes that fit around the eye.
The final stencil I used was the Daisy Window Fragment for the top of the three finger. I then filled in all of the stencil shapes with a few doodle marks to tie everything together.
The final step was to attach the hamsa design to a piece of shimmery pink cardstock with pop dots and then attach the pink cardstock to a plain white card.
There are so many stencils that I could have chosen to help me doodle the hamsa design, that I will never run out of ideas to make more!
