Paper Girls Challenge #18

I feel like such a blogging slacker right now! I know I was supposed to post this a week ago and I'm pretty disappointed in myself but as a disclaimer this post went live when I was out of town. First I was at a scrapbooking retreat put on by ScrapbookSteals and then I stayed a couple of extra days to visit with family I have in the SLC area. It was so much fun but I was exhausted when I finally got home. By the way I got to meet up with four other ladies from Paper Girls and it was so fun to see them in person. I met Heather and Kristy last year but Sheryl and Amber I had yet to meet. So much fun!

Here is my creation based on the inspiration photo. I absolutely adore the colors in this photo. I wanted to replicate the layered up shapes, textures, drips and the lovely transparent portions. So on some of my circles I created a mask and sponged ink within the mask, or painted inside of it. The large yellow is misted with Mr Hueys. My color palate in SU colors is: Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party. Then I used the Circle Circus stamp set from Stampin' Up which was perfect to accent the other circles and bring pattern into it. Lastly I wanted to bring the circles off the matted area so I cut some with punches and with my Cricut.I used some embellishments from Amy Tangerine Sketchbook to accent the rest of my page.
