Cascading Circles Spellbinders Mother's Day Card :D


A really cute Mother's day using the fabulous Cascading Circles Spellbinders die, I love this die (along with the Cascading Butterflies and Cascading Stars) so much, as they can be used in so many different ways :D And the circle die looks especially cute when it's teamed up with these gorgeous little Mama Elephant critters too :D

I started by ink blending on some Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, then I used a sentiment stamp to add some tone on tone stamping using some Bubblegum Hero Arts ink :D I stamped out all my little critters using my MISTI so that I could get a nice crisp and deep black image (and I also stamped them twice so I had some already stamped for a few other cards you'll see over the next month or so :D) I then used ProMarkers to colour in the critters using some traditional colourings of the animals and some slightly more wacky colours too to give a fun feel, and also to tie the critters in with the background colours too :D I cut out all my images ready, then I die cut the Cascading Circles die, placing this down on the card along with the sentiment to get my positioning right, then I added in all my little characters so that some were tucked into the circles, some overlapped the circles and some were jumping across multiple circles :D I wanted to give this card a really fun feel, as it was a commission of a Mother's Day card from my little God Daughter to her Great Granny :D Hope you liked the card, I really want to try this design with the Cascading Stars die and some more masculine colours, I think it would look fab :D
