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 -

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.
