A Week of Circles, Day 5

Thanks for joining me the past few days for a Week of Circles!  Here's our last card with a circular element:

I began by stamping Penny Black 40-168 Holiday Delight with Memento Black Ink onto white cardstock.  It was colored with Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Markers.  After rounding the corners, the background was inked with Brushed Corduroy and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The circles in the middle of the wreath were cut with Spellbinders dies and inked with Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans, and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The sentiment, Penny Black 40-167 Peace on Earth, was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.

Thanks for popping by! 
Have a great weekend!

I have to admit, I don't use circles much when I craft--but this week has made me want to re-think my circle aversion! :) And the coloring on this card is amazing, as always!

Did you use a sponge dauber to ink the center of the circles? Or an inking tool?

This is so gorgeous!! I tried to click on it to see it up close but it said it was private :(

Hi Pat! Thanks for your comment- I used the Tim Holtz ink blending tool with a foam pad to ink the circles.

Renee- I'm sorry it says private! I'll look into that. Thanks for letting me know!
