Going Round in Circles with Halloween in Wonderland for Frilly and Funkie
Hello Friends! It’s time for another wonderful challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. This time around the lovely Sue is our hostess and she has set the theme Going Round in Circles. Here’s what she has to say about this challenge:
Challenge Theme: Going round in circles – Including circles in my projects is one of my favourite things to do, so for this challenge I want to see circles, lots of circles, not just one ! Stencilled, stamped or even a circular project such as a wreath !
Circular elements really do add a lot of visual interest to a project. With Halloween peeking around the corner, I pulled out my Graphic 45 Deluxe Collector’s Edition of Halloween in Wonderland and started going round in circles!
- The focal image is a circle
- Circular frame around the focal miage
- Background paper and ribbon both have polka dots
- My embossed background has a circular motif
- White Rabbit’s pocket watch is a circle
- The 2 O’s in BOO are both circular
- Spiderwebs in the black ribbon have a circular shape.
Yes, indeed…I think this card is definitely going round in circles!
Fun with Grit Paste
The most fun I had in making this card was adding the stenciled background. I don’t have a lot of stencils, but I found this one from Dreamweaver’s in my stash. Since I had just procured some Distress Grit paste, I was anxious to have a play with it.
I added some Aged Purple Embossing Powder to the grit paste while it was still wet, and then heat embossed it to create a spooky Halloween sky. Then I die cut gold glitter paper using Tim’s Crescent Moon and Stars die .
