I love the symmetry of the repeated stamped image, the vellum overlay and the the clever use of color. I went in circles coming up with my twist on this design - yes, the pun is intended :)
In the end, when I gave up on the idea of symmetry but stuck with circles, the card came together super fast. A white panel is cut with the largest sizes of the PTI Tipped Tops dies first and then the right angle of the panel is lined up with the right angle of the second die, so just a piece on the angled side is cut off.
The largest Circle Scribbles stamp is inked with Versafine Onyx Black and stamped in the corner of the panel, overlapping both pieces. The image is rotated a bit and stamped again.
The small piece of the white panel is adhered to the card base and a piece of waxed linen thread inked with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink is wrapped and adhered to mimic the circle scribble.
Random circles of linen thread and yellow jute are adhered to the larger white panel and a sentiment from the PTI Splat stamp set popped up over them before this panel is popped up on the card base.
Since this is the first time using these stamp sets, I am linking up to Darnell's NBUS challenge which has been going on all month. You are being given fair warning, drink with caution when reading Darnell's delightful posts - you may be wiping off the computer screen before you are done :)
I am also linking to the current Seize the Birthday challenge, where Anything Goes!
I want to give a huge "thank you" to Iwona Palamountain for inviting me to create along with the CASE Study Design Team this month - I had a blast!
Thanks for stopping by,
