Thinking of you

A recent wildlife magazine arrived and the envelope featured a graphic which was a circle with a ton of different species put inside sections and I immediately wondered whether I could do a card that would use the idea. This is what I came up with. Using the JUG’s chosen colours I inked half the circle with one and then the other half as you see. Then I picked out all those little stamps that so often don’t get used and stamped all over the circle till it was as full as I wanted it to be. All the stamps come from different sets which would take forever to list so you just have to trust me. When it was complete I spritzed the entire circle with Perfect Pearls and left it to dry. I had already die cut the center circle and I stamped it with a few more of the stamps added some shimmer with a rose gold sheen and adhered both pieces to the card front. I cut off the overlapping bits and then added the sentiment at a slight angle to the side. A few Pops of Color dots and I called it finished.

For a change, I think I achieved a good result with the colour match. I used Tattered Rose and Bundled Sage Oxides. I had fun making it although I’m not sure I really like it. As with many others, I reserve judgement until tomorrow as often I like the card better after stepping away from it. Hope you are all having fun and have a bit of sunshine in your lives too. Thanks for popping in to take a look.

    1. Thanks Lynda. I like it much better today and if I ever do something like this again, have already figured out how to make it using a slightly different technique.

  1. You never know where inspiration will come from and I’m so glad you took that envelope and ran with it, Johanna. All those little stamps you used worked well inside the circle. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

  2. Thanks my friend. I do like it much better today and have already figured a way to make it better if I do something like this again.


  3. I don’t know about you but sometimes I see something and wonder if it can be made into a card? I have a photo of a stage set from a play we saw recently and am wondering whether I can create a card using the idea. Needs a lot of thought though so I haven’t tried anything yet.
