Going round in CIRCLES

Since my last post (really enjoyed taking part in that challenge) I've had to change laptops and therefore programmes and so, as the title says, I spent ages trying to figure out how to upload the photos I'd taken of the STAMPOTIQUE CHALLENGE entry I'd made yesterday for SDC245 CIRCLES, hosted this week by Kristen Cantalano, I've finally got my act together and all is well in the crafting world.... . I now have this...



This started off as a plain little round lidded pot..



For the lid, I painted darker watercolour paint in the background (the negative space) between each of  the dandelion clock flowers shown on the stamp to create what appear like daisies.

Then on opening the little lidded pot you find a string of circles all connected to each other by a ribbon...


"Sometimes. I pretend to be normal,...


but it gets boring, so I go back to being me."



I took a look through my stamps and picked up all the ones with some sort of circle that I saw...(plus a star!)

these are the ones I actually used.


All the stamps used are by Stampotique . I've set them out onto a piece of paper and written the code next to it...hopefully you'll be able to see this on the enlarged version...if not I'll edit and add them.

Hopefully now I've got used to the new photo uploading programme I'll be ok again :)

See you soon...thanks for stopping by xx
