All things Circular!

This was actually finished on time... honest, but I didn't get up in time to get a pic in the daylight before work! BG Granola loveliness and my new Fiskars Threading water punch with a Purple Onion Stamp! Happy Friday :)

Fish or Frog

What a fab dare from Rein this week, it really got mybrain cells whirring. I ended up playing about with some dingbat fonts in Photoshop to make this little picture, cute eh! The fonts are Tombats 7 for the cat, Eller for the two fish and Komika Bubbles for the thought bubble. Thanks to the designers of the fonts who share them for free, they're all easily findable with a quick google search.

I watercoloured the image, matched it with these gorgeous Basic Grey Offbeat papers and added a slip of ribbon. Yum :)

All is well here, the nights are geting lighter and it's FRIDAY!!!! Have a great weekend.

Spot the difference. It's easy to see I changed the owls a bit, they were just a bit too green!
Owl stamps by Stamps Away, basic grey paper & chipboard. Scallop cut from a BG card kit, which I go cheap on Do-crafts a wee while ago, same with the choccy coloured letters.

Once more in Pink & Green

3 more papers on this one for Lythan's dare, made for my fabulous friend on a very special day. I haven't braved the 3 different manufacturers yet, still warming up!
All papers Basic Grey Sultry, American Crafts Thickers, velvet ricrac, spotty ribbon and lace from stash, Impression Obsession Happy Birthday stamp & K&Co little 30 stamps from a mini alpha set.
The greens match better in real life but as the photo was taken on a very dull day I had to do a little photoshoping to make the colours more realistic.
