TGIF!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their Friday! With my preschooler on summer break already - I am finding that I am really enjoying these mornings where we don't have anywhere we have to be - it's been nice to start my mornings with a bit of stamping! I made a card for today's Limited Supplies challenge over on SCS. Today's challenge was to use circles on your card and to use only ONE stamp set. Well - I immediately reached for one of my Our Craft Lounge sets - I LOVE OCL sets - not only are the main images wonderful - but the sentiments are always SO clever and you get lots of fun borders and accessories. The sentiment, main image and border image at the bottom of this card are all from the OCL "Bubbles" set - the turtle is cute enough - but that sentiment - OMG - it's SO flippin' cute!! LOL!! I started by stamping my turtle and then coloring him in with Copics. I cut him out using my circle nesties in keeping with the challenge and then cut some smaller circles as well so I could make a row of bubbles with them. To make them look like bubbles - I shaded around the edges of my circles with a BG10 (Cool Shadow) Copic marker and edged them with a BG13 (Mint Green) Copic. To really give them a faded out look - I went around the edges where the BG10 meets the white with my Colorless Blender. The border image was colored with Copics as well. I embossed the light purple background with more circles - using the Cuttlebug "Spots and Dots" embossing folder. The sentiment is accented with a Hero Arts gemstone. Thanks so much for stopping by!! I know a lot of my friends in the States are having a nice long holiday weekend and if you are planning on travelling this weekend - I wish you safe travels!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
