Where has the last week gone?! I can't believe it is already time for another High Hopes challenge. This week, Janette challenged us to use lots of circles on our cards. I have to say I had so much fun with this challenge! I have never made a card with this many circles, but I think it turned out cute.
I recently got some of Cosmo Cricket's new Early Bird patterned papers. You all know how much I love vintage or vintage inspired stuff. The patterned papers in this line are so cute and wonderfully vintage inspired!
I cut a large circle for my cute little ladybug image and colored it with copic markers. Then, I masked my two bugs and sprayed my white cardstock with a E51 copic marker. I sprayed it a little heavier around the edge. Then, I sponged some dark chocolate ink around the edge and distressed it with a pair of scissors. I added some paper piercing and some black buttons as the buggy wheels.
I chose three patterned papers and cut some large circles using nestability dies. Then, I sponged the edges with dark chocolate ink, distressed the edges, and added the paper piercing. I did the same thing pretty much with my sentiment circle (it's vintage cream cardstock). Stamped my sentiment, sprayed it with a copic marker, added an ocean tides mat, sponged dark chocolate ink, and added paper piercing. Then, I layered all my circles and tied a piece of ocean tides swiss dots ribbon around my card.
Have a great day!
