Spin me Around Beyond the Blue


Beyond the Blue challenge this week  BTB7 was to "Use what you've got!" - well I was going through my folder of started-never-finished things when I came to some watercolor practices I'd done while visiting my son in Japan in 2019.  There was one that had three roundish circles of color...and that made me think of another challenge this week at Little Red Wagon "You spin me around."  They wanted circles of all kinds.   So I dug out the SSS Circled Sentiments and a retired CTMH set Circle Around and found circles that fit my watercolor.  Then I masked and added a few more stamped circles, and finally got out a stencil and blended in some more circles with Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron Distress inks. I never would have thought of this without challenge inspiration.  Finished it off with a heat embossed birthday sentiment from the same SSS set.  It all spins around because my son requested some birthday cards. ♥
