Round in Circles

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my Dads birthday which was the other day.

I used some new stamps from Paperartsy which were designed by Kim Dellow:

I created the background stamping in distress inks - squeezed lemonade, crushed olive and blueprint sketch - from stamp plate EKD01.
Added a little bit of stencilling with one of Darcy's newest stencil releases for Paperartsy.

Stamped the trees in the foreground and coloured with distress markers.

The hedgehogs and clouds were stamped on separate card then added with foam pads.

The sentiment stamps are by Waltzing Mouse, stamped in black archival.

Distressed the edges with vintage photo then mounted and added to a 7x7 card blank.

I'm linking my card to the current challenge over at the That's Crafty Challenge Blog - the theme is circles and I certainly have a lot of those going on on this card! You can find out all the challenge info HERE

Thanks for looking,

Claire x
