Circles and Dots

A while back I saw a picture that really intrigued me, so I saved it in case I could make something similar. This morning I came across the picture and realized that if I could create it, it may work for two challenges and this is my version.

After cutting the CS to a 5″ by 5″ piece, I made a mask for the larger circle. Before adding the mask I went over the panel lightly in Spun Sugar giving the whole thing a hint of pink. Then I added the mask and inked with Shaded Lilace and Shabby shutters. Before removing the mask I stamped the village house using a new stamp set from MFT called Seasons Greetings. I also stamped the sentiment from the same set. Then using 2 different handmade stencils (made by friends) I stamped 3 more circles using the same inks and each time adding an image before moving the mask. Those stamps come from older GKD sets. Then taking the graduated polka dot stencil added more circles in various places and different sizes. I wanted it to have some shine so I took some Perfect Pearl powder and went over the entire piece. I added foam tape to the back and adhered it to a 5 and one quarter inch card base.

I have surprised myself with how this card turned out as I was truly experimenting and playing with ideas as I went along. I like that this is so different from anything I’ve ever done in the past and getting it to work for 2 challenges is a bonus. I hope you like it and thanks for taking a look.

  1. Thanks Diane, I would love to add the other two challenges but that would be considered back linking now so I can’t do it. Glad you like it though.


  2. Thanks. I think I may make a couple more similar to this one as I enjoyed doing it and I like the effect. The photo is ok but in R.L. it is much better.
