Sending You Circles

Happy Friday! Anybody have any fun plans for the weekend?
I'm working all weekend but at least the nice weather is still around.

Since it's Friday I'm posting a card for Wee Memories Favorite Technique challenge.

I love all kinds of techniques so it was hard to narrow it down to one lol. I decided on a CAS card stamped with paint. (Please forgive the pic :)

I started by inking up my background stamp (Hero Arts, Large Fabric Design) with a Adirondack Snow Cap paint dabber (Ranger) and stamping on a sheet of white cardstock. I ended up stamping it twice so I would have enough to cut all my circles. Once the paint was dry I rubbed on scattered straw, worn lipstick, and shabby shutters. Make sure you wipe away the excess ink with a damp rag or baby wipe.
I cut my circles using spellbinders and inked the edges with black soot.

The base is a standard sized card with one rounded corner. I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts, Truly Appreciated) with jet black archival ink. To attach the circles I used some liquid adhesive and some foam for dimension.

I topped the circles off with stardust stickles or glossy accents to make them pop. Lastly I added clear rhinestones for more shine.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!
