Hello friends! I hope you’re having a great week so far! Today is Thursday and it’s time to start a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday! This week we are looking for your “Circles” on your creations! So here’s what I’ve made for the challenge:
We are being sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps and I’ve used this adorable “Girl On a Bike” image for my card.
I’ve colored her up and cut her out with a circle die that I commonly reach for which is the Hero Arts Infinity Circle dies and then I cut out a black cardstock circle to layer behind her as well as the sentiment circle. I happen to find some papers that, for me, mimicked the bike wheels, so I cut that out in a circle as well for the design. For each circle, I took my ink foam blending tool and went around the edges with the same ink color that I’ve used for the cloud background.
Now that I had all the circles cut out for my design, I used a cloud stencil to ink up background which I cut out with a stitched rectangle die along with the pattern paper circle and then wrapped some black ribbon around it before attaching it to a black cardstock layer that was then mounted over a white A2 sized card base.
I added the circle image and cut off the right edge that was sticking out along the side. I took the sentiment circle and popped it up over the design with a foam circle and then I added some clear sparkling sequins in various places.
Here’s a closer look at the image and how I’ve got her colored up with Copic markers. I used a white gel pen for the flowers in her hair along with a gold gel pen for the centers of each of the flowers and her shoes and shirt waist band. I’ve used a silver gel pen for the bike wheels, petals and end handles.
I hope that you enjoyed my card today and inspired you to pull out some circles to play along with us this week! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with! CLICK HERE to go to the Cute Card Thursday challenge to enter!
