Less is More - theme week

Hello there,

This weekend I'm all about challenges, so of course I couldn't pass by the Less is More theme challenge, which this week is circles.

I immediately thought of my Circle Circus stamp set, and had an idea of making a Hungry Caterpillar out of the circles, (good thing I didn't) have just popped over to the blog to link up and found that someone else had that idea too!

When looking at my Circle Circus stamps I thought that one of them looked like bubbles so I looked through some more sets and pulled the whale out from Fox and Friends.

I masked off the edges of my vanilla CS and brayer Marina Mist into the centre, positioned the cute little whale, and set to work with my whisper white ink pad and my circles, which from now on are bubbles!!
I glittered a few bubbles, (the glue will dry clear but I had to take my chance and photograph the card in between showers) and cut out the Little Leaves die in Old Olive and Certainly Celery to look like seaweed.

I decided after much deliberation not to add a sentiment in case this made it over crowded.

Hope you like my fun take on the theme - xx
