Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

These fortnightly challenge deadlines come around far too quickly! I am sure that my fortnights’ are only lasting a few days…

Over on Craft Barn the challenge letter for this fortnight is ‘C’  and I chose Circles.

Dictionary 08-16 C sig

The background to this piece is painted with watercolour paints that have mica in the colours to make them sparkle. Difficult to see in a photo however I have had these paints for years and they have proved to be extremely good value. I think I paid around £2 for them from The Works!!!

The large circles were created with home made ‘stamps’; funky foam die cut with a small circle die.

Materials Used:

Inks – Versafine Onyx Black

Distress Inks Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral.

Stencil – First Impressions circles

Stamps – Papermania Chronology; The Artistic Stamper; Marianne Designs


Thanks for looking x

  1. Good word choice and you’ve even managed to get some clocks and cogs in!

  2. I agree each day seems to pass in a flash – perhaps we are having too much fun. Oh I wish!

    A great page with bonus words beginning with “c”.
