LIM Week 24 theme (circles).

Oh my I can't believe it's now week 24 over at
'Less is More' . This week it's theme week and
that theme is circles. You certainly keep us on
our toes C&M...and no Mandi I don't want
another acetate week just yet thank you lol !!!!!
I thought  long and hard and nothing came to
me, but in the end this idea jumped into my head
thank heavens!!!
I used an 18 cm x 10 cm card base for a change,
I punched some circles them stamped little flowers
in tangerine versacraft ink. Nice to try a new colour
for once I thought. Then I used the negative of the
circles I punched as a template to chalk some more
circles . Then I mounted the card circles onto 3d
foam pads to add a little height. I added a few stems
with my trusty Promarker pen ( bright orange) &
stamped a few leaves with the tangerine ink again.
I stamped the sentiment with an Anita's new stamp
I aquired recently also in tangerine ink, shaded with a
little( ice grey1) Promarker. I added little dots ( circles!)
to the centre of the flowers( which also have a circular
kind of shape I thought :O) .) A little sparkle with my
glamour dust on some of the flowers completed the card.
Hope you like it, nice change from my usual pink I thought !
