Art Impressions - Challenge 230


It's the second week of Art Impression Challenge 230 - Good Goes Around! Easy peasy, just create an uplifting card with 'circles' somehow incorporated on or in your card!! AI also has a great new release of Circlet Mini Tryfolds! Basically Tryfolds in circle form! You can make a circle card or a regular rectangle card, your choice!!

My card today features the Cabin Circlet set and I made a circle tryfold card!! I folded some cardstock just like I would for a regular tryfold card. Then I went further and die cut the card with my largest circle die, the folded card needed to be just inside the die on the two folded sides. You can adjust the folding of your card based on the size of your circle die.

Next, I stamped each of the circle landscapes on watercolor cardstock and used my Spectrum Noir AquaBlend pencils to color it. But instead of water I used a basic colorless blender, it acts like water without the water! I used the follow pencils on the images Parakeet, Pineapple, Black Umber, Anthracite, Regal Blue, Fossil Grey, Ginger, Ebony, Cypress, Apricot, Umber, Midnight Blue, Oregano.

Then I used smaller circles to die cut out each image, I did a little planning as for front image I wanted a frame for it. I used the biggest circle to cut out the pattern paper and then started adhering the paper and using the dies that come with the set to cut in the 'window' areas for the first two layers.

Once I had everything cut and adhered I just trimmed the bottom of the circle card to make sure it would stand up okay.
