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.
Thanks so much for dropping in today! I appreciate each and every single comment and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!
