Challenge: Super Circles!


Welcome to a fabulous new challenge! We hope you're ready to ink along with us! :)

This fortnight we're honouring the most super of shapes - the circle! We know, we know: hexagons might be so on trend right now, but circles still rock! Afterall, a hexagon is just a circle with straight edges and points, right? *wink*

So my brain got tickin' for this challenge and I started stamping the circular image from Daily Designs. I wondered what pattern I'd end up with if I rotated the circle through 360 degrees....


This pattern reminds me of one Christmas as a kid when I went crazy over my new toy: Spirograph! Did you ever have one of these? I used to make so many patterns with that baby and pin them on my pinboard to admire :)

If you're a visual learner, then here's a peek at how I stamped that image:

Spirograph, stamping stylee! I like it! :)

Over to Caryn...

Well I decided to go punchy with my card and broke open my Raspberry Fizz patterned papers and paired them with the Aqua Mist ones.  It was a simple case of punching circles from different papers and then layering them up to give this scalloped effect.  I die cut the letter from the block alphabet die and adhered them to a strip of AM card stock and that was it.

Here's Kate: "I had a real urge to stamp a circle background for my card so used my Mehndi Medallion set - technically some of them aren't true circles but hey! I'm loving this combination of Melon Berry, Aqua Mist and Harvest Gold!"
