Morning lovely Crafters. Another week done and dusted and as it's Friday again that must mean a new challenge over at The Stampman. Lisa Sparkle has asked us this time to CIRCLE IT!!!!!!
After many attempts this is what I finally came up with. A circle Easel. I had the initial idea of the little fairy scene but couldn't decide what to do with it and several cards ended up in the bin. Once the circle easel popped into my poor brain though things started to work and I just kept going adding the embossed stars and edging. You would never believe it's taken me three days would you???
The background to the fairies was done with Bundled sage and various blue distress inks, starting with Stormy Sky and working through Faded Jeans to Chipped Sapphire and then over sprayed with gold mica spray. I always stick the moon on after inking now, saves the hassle of masking and I quite like the raised effect. I added some stickles to the edge of it for a touch of sparkle and some to the stars too. All the stamps come from the Aspects of Design Starburst Fairies and Daisy Daydreams.
The greeting stamp on the bottom is straight but I found by bending it it would stamp out curved. It had to be done quickly though before it popped back into shape being rubber.
I'm still not sure about the flowers, they were punched out and sprayed with water and scrunched, with stickles added when they were dry. They look better in real life but I need to try this technique again with some brighter paper. Still they do the job of keeping the card upright.
Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team have been up to, there are some gorgeous projects to look through and we are delighted to welcome another new team member, Caroline this week.
So lets see all you circle projects. Jill is offering a £10 voucher to spend at her brand new website which will be up and running very shortly, please bear with her, there is a tremendous amount of work involved.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend. I don't think we are going to be lucky enough to have the weather we enjoyed last weekend but at least the wind and rain seems to have calmed down today and we have some sunshine again even if it's a bit chilly.
