I love using circles, though I have made myself have a break from them for a while, but the current challenge over at TIOT is Circles, so I have a good excuse to use my stencils!

This one is made with Distress Oxides and a couple of my favourite Paperartsy stamps.… I watercoloured the flowers with the Oxides, too.


…as is this one, though I’ve added white paint circles over the top…


I made the one above with the Addicted to Stamps challenge of ‘Make Someone Smile.’

I think this one would also fit into both categories, made with the same stamp, but a very different background, stencilled with Distress inks.


More circles, but this time coincidentally. Again, I used Distress Oxides to make the background.


I’d like to enter the first card into the challenge at Try it on Tuesday,

and also the ‘Anything Goes’ challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

It also fits the ‘Anything Goes with Flowers’ challenge at Addicted to Stamps Sunday/Monday challenge..

I’d like to enter the second card into the Addicted to Stamps Challenge, Make Someone Smile.

See you next time!

Thanks for looking.
