Morning All! Time for my weekly make for the DTDF Blog.....using Circles Circles Circles from Clearly Whimsy Stamps.
I stamped a few of the different circles with versamark and then embossed with white powder then I inked all over with DI......I did have a little mishap with the sentiment....I originally stamped straight onto the panel but the ink smudged where I had embossed so to save having to redo the whole thing I just stamped onto some scrap cardstock and then diecut a fishtail and added to the panel with some 3d foam tape.......problem solved!
