the next two weeks at Cardz 4 Guyz. Julie has provided 
this interesting sketch, you can tip it, flip it, but we do need to see 
the same design, in some orientation.

The gold fish stamps are from a set in my stash-source unknown.
The Angel fish are by All Nigh Media
Coloured with Promarkers and Crafter's Companion Glitter Pens.

Going Around in Circles

Hi, today we begin a new two weekly challenge at Make My Monday.
Emma has chosen Going Around in Circles - we need to see at least 3 circles.
Please pop over to check out the blog, the DT have some wonderful
inspirational cards for this challenge.
I was inspired by a card I saw at the last Ross Craft Event I attended.
I first coloured a sheet of A4 watertcolour card, using a mixture of 
blue and purple Brusho colours.
With a Woodware Grasses stamp, I stamped 4 x, then using
different size circle dies I cut the circles from the coloured sheet.
Once all were assembled on the DL card, I added highlights with a white Glaze pen. 
I also went around the circles with dots using a Nano-Liner pen.
The sentiment is from Crafter's Companion.
