Triangular Circles

I picked up a new delivery from Simon Says Stamps this morning and I have about a million things to do today, so naturally, I'm not doing any of them and am playing with my stamps instead!   And it being Saturday, the first place I always go looking for a challenge is Less is More where today the challenge is a colour based one - a metallic element plus a colour of our choice

I'm hoping that using lots of shades of green is permitted as I really wanted to play with my new "lots of circles" stamps so I stamped 3 different sized solid circles in 5 shades of memento inks into a triangle I'd masked onto my card base to form a Christmas tree.  I then used 2 of the outline circles to add some gold embossing onto the tree.   The die is also from SSS and is called sparkling tree lights and I die cut it, and the tiny star on top, from some gold card, adding extra sparkle to the lights themselves with gold stickles.   I finished with a gold embossed sentiment underneath (Christmas Quotes from Kaiserkraft) with the "I" looking like the tree trunk (well hopefully!)  I'm really pleased with how this turned out.

Right - I really must go and get a stew in the oven or we'll be eating at 10pm!

Catch you later.

  3. This is wonderful....and not just because my favorite color is green! I love the look you got from your lots of circles stamps.

  4. Absolutely fabulous! Love the circles inside the tree and the touch of gold!

  5. Very clever to interpret the one colour as shades of one colour Tara! The tree looks fabulous and gold and green definitely gets the thumbs up from me! Hope you ate considerably earlier than 10pm! Vicky x
