Hello! I used the new 16 Circle Shadow stencil on my card today, which was released this month from A Colorful Life Designs. I got to use a background I had in my stash, so this card was quick to put together.

The background was made with rolling the Creole Spice Kaleidacolor Inks onto watercolor paper with a brayer. Then, I took the stencil and stuck it onto the panel on the diagonal. I applied Distress Oxides through the circles with my Mini Ink Blending Tools. I used Fossilized Amber, Dusty Concord, and Faded Jeans. Fossilized Amber looks very different than it normally does, probably because of the colors underneath. Next I flicked on Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Copper and Rich Cocoa Fireworks! Spray. After I removed the stencil, I placed one of the circle masks on top of a circle and traced around it messily with a thin black marker. I did this to all of the circles and added scribbles to them as well.
I applied VersaMark Ink around the perimeter of the panel and then sprinkled on Chipped Sapphire Distress Embossing Glaze. I die cut a large “hello” from Pinkfresh Studio’s Classic Word Die Set. Then, on the card base, I ink blended Scattered Straw and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks.
