Swirls & Curls

Tuesday Taggers challenge

Swirls & Curls

Good morning my dear friends. I'm hoping today is going to be bright and sunny as it was yesterday. A bit of sunshine works wonderfully to pick up your spirits, well it does mine.

Today being Tuesday it's time for another Tuesday Taggers challenge. The theme this week,which was chosen by myself, is swirls & curls. I decided to use Crafty Individuals swirl stamps CI-235 and I am delighted to tell you that the fantastic Crafty Individuals are our sponsors for the challenge this week. To be in with a chance of winning please put a link to them in your post and a winner will be chosen at random. Why not pop over to the CI website to check out their fantastic products.

I decided to make a circular easel card this week after being inspired by Debbie Dolphin's fabulous creations.

The paper has been created by using distress inks (worn lipstick, dusty concored & peeled paint) sprayed with water and then misted with Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. I stamped the CI-235 swirl stamp onto the paper using the dusty concord ink.

The little girl image is from one of CI miniature pads People & Places inside a frame cut using my pink slice.

The curls are circles of the paper cut around like orange peel.

Now it's your turn. Please join in with the fun this week and if you need any inspiration pop over to the TT challenge blog to check out the fantastic creations the DT have come up with. I'm looking forward to seeing your projects.

Thank you so much for visiting today and please leave me a comment so I know you've been and then I can come and visit you.

Have a good day,

Hugs, Pat xx
