Good Morning all and welcome to a new week.
Today is a new challenge starting at Make My Monday
The theme this fortnight is
'GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES'
Make a project using at least 3 circles. You could go quite simple or all out with lots of circles. I decided to go circle mad with circle toppers, circle inking and a spotty embossing folder.
Make an XL DL card by folding black A4 cardstock in half lengthways.
I first stamped the crazy dogs and then die cut into a circle. I then masked the dogs with drawing gum, using a dotty stencil i applied ink through some of the circles and then stamped in the same ink with a dictionary stamp. I removed the stencil and drawing gum and watercoloured the dogs with distress inks.
I then inked around the edge and mounted onto black circles. Die cut a round birthday sentiment in white and matted onto a black circle. I then used a large spots embossing folder on a white panel for the background and used the same blue ink on the edges.
I stamped and coloured some of the tennis balls from the stamp set, covered in glossy accents and used them in the corners to embellish. A few extra balls and bones to finish.
Close up detail of the dog and inked and stamped background behind him. I also added glossy accents to the eyes and nose.
