Simply Stamped Stacked Circles

Welcome

As promised, a card using an image from our sponsor, Stamp Simply, at the Word Art Wednesday Challenge that started yesterday.  They are generously offering either two stamp sets, or a stamp set and matching dies as a prize. 


I really wanted to feature the fabulous sentiment from the Fear Not set of stamps, so I kept the card somewhat CAS.


I started alternately stacking the red and white die cuts slightly off centre.  That looked rather stark against the background, so I added the ribbon - the red base showed through it, so I attached it to a thin strip of white card before layering it onto the base. 



To add some interest without taking away from the focal point, I added various sized dots of clear Kindy Glitz - I love the finished look


The inside white layer had red ink applied to the edges, and then a strip of the ribbon to one side. 
I love the finished look of this.

I will be away from the computer for the next few days as I will be visiting a family member who is very unwell... please excuse my lack of commenting over that time.

I like how the layers of circles puts the focus on the sentiment. I have never seen clear Kindy Glitz before although I have used the glitter ones heaps of times. It almost looks like you stepped outside with it in your hand and some stray raindrops fell on it - so realistic.

The circles layered up like that are so effective. I can see how the addition of the ribbon has created even more interest to the card and of course, it has the Maxine touch inside as well. Lovely.
Blessings, Neet xx
