I created this card for our new Incy Wincy Designs Challenge on Anything Goes with a Twist, Seeing Spots or Dots or Circles (Minimum of 3). I created this card using circle windows. I colored this image several times. I just love this image from Fabrika Fantasy called Funny Friends! The critters are just so cute!
I created windows for the critters to look out of. There are dies to create this lay out but I thought of stretching my dies to re-create a window lay out. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles die. I drew the circles first on a note card. I used a T-square ruler to make sure the circles are aligned with each other. I aligned the metal die to the traced circle, then ran this thru the die cut machine. This was done on a heavy weight cardstock, 5 ½”x4 ¼”. I aligned a same sized patterned paper to this windowed panel, matched the circle metal die to the already cut circle window then ran it thru the die cut machine. I was able to re-create the same aligned windows on the patterned paper. I saved this windowed white cardstock panel for future use.
I created outlines for the windows using the SSS Stitched Circles die and MFT Circle Stacked die. I inked the edges with red dye ink to hide the white core of this red shimmer cardstock. I adhered this to the windows.
I colored the image using Copic markers. I fuzzy cut the images right on the line. I lined the edges with a black marker to cover the white core of the cardstock. I adhered the critter to each window, using foam adhesive in some areas to make the critter pop, and adding liquid glue to some areas.
For the sentiment, I heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Sunday Sentiments. I adhered this with a foam adhesive. I rounded the bottom corners with WRMK Corner Punch as a last finishing touch.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed and brilliant day!
