Hi and welcome to another fabulous challenge at SugarPea Designs.  Here is the new challenge:

I went with the sketch this week and decided to do some ink blending and die-cutting.

I sponged various colors of distress inks onto scraps of watercolor paper and then spritzed with water.  I then die-cut the pieces using different sizes of Zig Zag Stitched Circles dies.  A strip of black and white striped patterned paper was adhered down the left hand side of a white card base and then I added a thin strip of black cardstock to finish it off.  The circles were arranged on the card base with the yellow circle popped up on foam tape.

Lastly, a stacked die-cut using the brand-new Celebrate die.

Thanks for visiting!
Here are the guidelines to join in our challenge:

Those wonderfully sponged and splattered circles are perfect behind the "celebrate". LOVE the black and white stripe to accent it all.
