There She Goes Round and Round Challenge



This week's challenge on the There She Goes blog is to make a card with no angles on it!  That means round or oval only - including what is on the card!   Kept having to say "nope, can't do that", "nope, that has an angle on it" as I thought of different things I could  use on a circle card - wasn't as easy as I though it would be!

I finally settled (aka: wimped out) on creating a scene with this adorable little gnome and his little mushroom house.  I just love this My Little Friend set!  So many cute images which are fun to colour and so many fabulous coordinating sentiments :)

After stamping some extra grassy bits (thanks Torinco for including that little image in the set!) I coloured the images with Twinkling H2Os and popped up the two focal images.  There was a "hole in the sky" that needed  something so I hand drew a cloud and added it into the scene.  Was about ready to call it a night when my wonderful daughter told me my line of orange half pearls was straight so I curved it instead - phew!

That's it for today.  Off to help with Hot Lunch at the school and then hopefully still have enough time before the kids get home to get inky again :)  It feels soooo good to be stamping regularly again!!

Marisa, I love the mushroom house. I think you did great with the round and round. Daughters come in very handy, don't they?
