Going in Circles with the Artistic Stamper
The Artistic Stamper has "Circles" as their theme this month. I don't seem to have a circle stamp (does this pity party ever stop? lol) but I do have tons of circle scraps. I have a little container that is full of punched circles in every size and color under the sun. Sometimes I have just a small piece of some wonderful paper left over and can't bear to part with it so I punch some circles or squares and salvage just a little bit of it for later. For this card I stamped a face from Dyan Reaveley's "Bits of this" collection on an old book page. Her "hair" is a mass of circles. I colored her face with Distress Markers and did a tiny Zentangle across the bottom. It is a tangle pattern created by Diana Sexton called "Itsy Twisty". Since I mastered it a couple of days ago I can't stop doing it. It reminds me of buttons with a ribbon running through them.
Our weather here has finally cooled down a bit, I hope yours has too. Have a great weekend!
