It's been a bit wet here today so my veg patch has taken a back seat. At least I managed to get my spuds planted as Al managed to finish filling the latest of my raised beds on Friday. I can't really complain as the soil was quite parched. Anyway as I had a few moments to myself I decided to join in over at a couple of challenges with this card.
Over at LiM, they want to see one layer cards using circles and/or stripes and PP want us to use red, orange, turquoise and orange. I saw this card on Pinterest and decided I liked the look of it but after looking in my stash for some circle stamps I could only find a couple so I decided to use a stencil and draw them. I also liked the idea of making them look like they were popped up off the front as in the original but keep it one layer.
I've done similar designs with balloons, first using die cuts then using stamps so this was along the same lines but this time I added some shadows to the right of the coloured circles with Copic pens to give a 3D effect. The colours I used were the nearest match in Copics to the PP ones.
The sentiment is from a free set in a mag.
The weather looks a bit wet tomorrow so I suppose I better get some housework done while I can. :(
