Going round in circles

A bit of 'mixed media' for you today, using Aall & Create stamps.

I had great fun yesterday painting watercolour circles after being inspired by a video on Pinterest by kristina del bano 

Hubby said the blue one looked like pebbles so I put that one aside to do a nautical theme and decided to do a floral card with the green one.

After stamping the sentiment and mounting it onto an A6 card blank with foam tape I decided to add decoration to some of the circles...

... so I cut a quick mask from paper to cover the area around the circles ...

and then realised I should have decorated the circles before I mounted it on the card, but it was stuck down fast so I had to make the best of it.

Because of the uneven surface none of the patterns stamped out properly so I ended up drawing in the missing bits with a black fineliner :D
