The theme at Theme Thursday this week is to make something ROUND.  I actually woke up – early, I might add – thinking about this today.  In the end, I did something a little different to what I’d imagined but it was still fun.

I started with three different sized circles, cut out with my trusty Creative Memories Circle Cutter, used them as masks and sponged Wild Honey and Barn Door Distress inks on glossy card, edging with some Rusty Hinge, then used a reverse mask of a circle punch to stamp some of the Non Sequitur Time words through, creating circles of text - the others are spirals, anyway.  The clock face is a Heidi Swapp clear stamp but the face clock is another Non Sequitur.  The brown ink is Memories Chestnut – a great colour!  There are so many circles on here that I couldn’t count them but it was fun to go with a theme like this.

TT Circles Time

This also ties in with the NEW Stampman Challenge, which this week is ANYTHING GOES.  Non Sequitur stamps are available from the Stampman.

Yummy colours and I love how you've used a time theme to play around with the circles. Lots of stamping in this yet it manages not to look too busy. The contrasting white for the clock and letters really make them stand out from the background. Beautiful, as always. P x
