circles postcard


The theme at Sunday Postcard art is to make a 6"x4" postcard with the theme circles. I have used circles on the background by stamping with water onto a distress ink background with a ringer stamp and stamping in distress ink as well.
I have combined this with the lots to do challenge "in stitches" by stitching some circles with string. The base of this piece is corrugated cardboard.

The main image (from Inka) is on vellum, hence the various ways it is attached to the background.
