The newest and greatest invention... CIRCLES!!!! And colorful too!

Scroll down for current challenge or click HERE!

The long winter days are over for us here but it's still cold! We haven't had much snow, but they say we might have a big one tonight!! Anyone have any free snow?! :D

At our local art store, my dad and I bought two stretched canvases and some Tombo Mono adhesive. I'm hoping  to try out painting but don't be expecting a masterpiece!! Just something fun to do but I haven't even decided what to paint yet but I'll keep you updated on that!

So, as you all probably must be waiting for, a card!!!

Mainly, the circles in the background took the most time on this card! I have these templates for different sizes of circles and colored them in! Stuck a DP on there and later, lots of time thinking. I adhered the DP on and I couldn't think of a sentiment! I was thinking of some small, white letter stickers to spell out something but I didn't have any so... I trimmed off a piece of CD and it look good. I wrote a simple "hello" and colored it. Cut a little triangle off to get a 'banner' look and adhered it on. I watched a video that said that clustering your embellishments would give them more potential so I tried it out! I think it looks pretty good! What do you all think?

Also, added some circles inside with the card but forgot to get a pic of it. I'm also hoping to get a stamp that says "Handmade by Iris" so I can stamp it on the back of all my cards! Any of you out there have any preference for a good, solid ink?
That's all I've got to share today! Have a fabulous one!

p.s. This card goes with ths challenge:
 I DID IT CREATIONS- Anything Goes


  1. Iris, this is adorable! So cute! I love your hand made circles for the background, and I do think the clustered embellishments look awesome! So glad that you shared. I know you will have fun with your canvas. They are always fun to craft with, and anything goes - you can paint, stamp, sponge, decoupage, whatever you like! Can't wait to see it. As for inks, on tiny delicate work, I use Versafine black or brown. With Copics, I used Tuxedo black or brown. Other than that, I just use what I like! Lots of Tim Holtz Distress inks for distressing too! Hugs...

  2. Wowee love all the dots! hehee
