Circle It at That's Crafty Challenge Blog

Hi Everyone
Where did the last 2 weeks go? As is time again for another new challenge theme over at 
Our theme for the next 2 weeks is 
"Circle It"

Here's my little piece of inspiration to support this fortnights challenge.
I first used a white wax crayon through the Dina Wakley stencil as I wanted a resist. I then swooshed the card through puddles of pastel pink and pastel yellow Aquatints I had put onto a craft mat. 
I then took some black and white papers and punched 3 circles of different sizes, I went round the edges with a distressing tool and then creased each one up and opened them out again. I have brushed pink Dylusions paint around the distress edges, layered them up and added a button to the centre. The stalk is black paper string and the leaves are stamped using a Carabelle Studio stamp. The leaves got the same distressed treatment and were coloured with Lime Dylusions paint. The stamped circles are a Katzelkraft stamp and have been stamped in Archival ink. Sentiment is from Tim Holtz. Some torn washi tape and black ink splashes finishes it off.

As always the design team has created some fabulous inspiration for you to hopefully inspire you to come and play along with us HERE.
Our lucky winner of this challenge will win a £20 voucher to spend at the That's Crafty online store.
What are you waiting for? Come and play.
Until next time, thanks for visiting
