April 2016 Papertrey Blog Hop

This month's inspiration picture is very cool  over on the Papertrey Blog hop... I took the concentric overlapping circles and used those as my jumping off point.  I created some stencils with different size circles and used some makeup sponges (!!) and Avery Elle/Fresh ink for overlapping colours.  What fun!  I used shades of blues, teals and greens because they were calling to me from my wide array of inks. :)  Here are the colours I used:
Avery Elle: Aquamarine, Sea Glass
Fresh Ink: Pool, Blue Sage, Sicilian Blue, Turquoise
 A very simple card with an unusual layout in the corner on a piece of Kraft cardstock as my base.  I used lots of foam tape behind to make sure it was tacked down properly and a Hugs die using a perfume packaging that I loved the colour of ... :) It is a divine scent that I love called  from Giorgio Armani.   I just love it but only buy it when there is a special as it is not cheap ...  At any rate, the packaging is this pale peachy pink that makes me think of the amazingly talented Debby Hughes ... 
I layered multiple die cuts to make it more substantial and glued it on using my new favourite adhesive - Tombo Mono Aqua.  Clear and fab!
A bit of clear Wink of Stella on the die cut and that's it!  Well, I'm off to hop and take a look at everyone's wonderful creations.  Happy hopping! :)
