The the beary best

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: We're going around in circles.

As the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is"Anything goes, I thought I would add one more.  Sadly no Whimsy stamps this time.

For my card I tried something Laura Bassen showed a few weeks ago on her Youtube Channel.

I already had the big round circle as a stencil and so diecut a few more from nesting dies.

I masked off the bottom half of the circle, then applied the blues first. These are all Distress inks:  Tumbled Glass, Broken

China, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jeans, Chipped Shapphire.

Then reversed the masking and applied more Distress inks, I used less colors as I felt these go very well together, others not so much ;-) So Cracked Pistachio, then Cracked Pistachio again, Evergreen Bough and again, Lucky Clover and Pined Needles.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Punny Animals, I wanted something modern, not scripty to go with my funky circles. So I stamped also some silhouette animals that went with my sentiment, these are from Marianne Design.
