Circles...continued: "Less Is More" Challenge

This week's challenge was so inspiring at the Less Is More Challenge Blog: Circles.   I couldn't help myself with just one entry.  Two more popped into my head and had to make it to paper!

This tag features the Inkadinkadoo clear stamp set "Circles & Dots."  I stamped it with Versamark on my tag (neutral cardstock cut with Plantin Schoolbook cart).  I went over the flower portion with my bronze Viva Decor pearl pen.  I'm still getting the hang of it, it reminds me of cake decorating in that for consistency you need to practice with pressure, ink flow, ect.  Then I went over the "stem" with Prismacolor pencils and inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The stickers are Heidi Grace.

Here's just one more CAS card using the circle theme.

I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder "Boo To You" to emboss the Halloween circle images.  I then punched them with a 1 1/2" circle punch and went over them with ink.  Papers were inked and layered, sentiment stamped.  The punches were raised up on foam tape.  Fun, easy, and perfect for my Halloween stash!
Thanks for stopping by!
