CASE: Circle Mask Flowers...


Hey,

Happy Monday.

Only 3 more work days this year, then rest, desk playtime and hangs with the Hubs, glorious.

When I am a bit stuck for inspiration and want to play at my desk, I head over to my Pinterest ideas board..

I came across this -

Gorgeous right?

So, I decided to have a go. I had two scrap circles on my desk, so I used those as my centre masks - one is bigger than the other.

I used a great Artist Loft circle template to create my circles - if you don't have one of these, you need one, they are super useful. I used mini daubers to apply the colour.

I stuck with four colours for both of my cards - all distress inks - Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Peacock feathers.

Before I lifted off the circle mask I stamped all the details onto my inked circles, to create the flowers. For this I used three Simon Says Stamp sets and a Lawn Fawn set - Scribble Flowers, Favorite Flowers, Handwritten Floral Greetings (SSS) and Our Friendship Grows (LF).

Here is the other version.



To finish off I die-cut the panels using a SSS stitched die and added the sentiment. The sentiments are also by SSS Sketchy Banner Greetings and dies (they don't make this set anymore)

Sounds like a lot of work, but it really was very simple and I had a lot of fun creating them, totally doing this again.

As this is a CASE, it is only good manners to provide links to Therese's blog and the Altenew post.

  1. This looks awesome - is the circle template like a stencil? The color is so rich and it works so well. That second sentiment is awesome, I am a mega fan. x
