Awesome circles ...

I've been trying to sort my craft stash this afternoon but it is so easy to get distracted and that's exactly what happened ... instead of sorting I created!  It all began when I came across some pieces of "experimental" alcohol ink backgrounds in vibrant pinks, oranges and yellows ... this is the result:

I love the vibrancy of alcohol inks but I'm never sure of how to use them ... so far all I've done is create "interesting" backgrounds!  I punched out a number of different sized circles and adhered them to some card stock - some flat to the surface and others using foam squares.  I die cut the sentiment five times in black card to give it more dimension.

I also wanted to join in the celebrations for Becca's, The Damsel of Distressed Cards, 30th Birthday celebrations.  Becca creates amazing cards using mixed media techniques which I would love to emulate ... I just struggle and my cards always seem to end up just clean and simple.  Becca has set up a challenge to celebrate her birthday with this mood board:

Hopefully I have captured the mood ... Happy Birthday Becca.

I'm also going to enter the Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge at STAMPlorations as the Awesome die is on one of the new CUTploration dies ... it also seems approriate as Becca is one of their designers.



  1. Oh well I'm glad you properly labeled this card because it certainly is AWESOME! Those circles are so brilliant! And I bet this card was waaaaaay more fun than sorting things out. haha! Thanks for helping me celebrate my birthday!

  2. Love the colours! I really have to get more alcohol inks!

  3. I love your arrangement of the circles and they look stunning. Cara x

  4. Wanted to stop by and say your card is marvelous. I was stuck what to do with my backgrounds too and never thought of cutting lots of circles or any shape and laying them out like this...but I will next time! Thank you for the inspiration x
