Probably The Best Circle In The World

No I'm not boasting, it's just a little hint to where the circle came from lol. Yep I've been stealing beer mats again to make a  hangy thing for this weeks Just For Fun circle challenge. The idea was to colour with gold UTE, then emboss through my creaky old Bug. Then I wanted to highlight the embossed parts with brighter UTE's All went well until I added the green and purple and re-heated, the embossing disappeared! I was really surprised at this, I thought it would have held it's shape. Never mind, I just heaped the UTE's on top then embossed again.
The dashing chappies are from Artistic Outpost, and the charm is by Tim Holtz.
I really enjoyed making this, so thanks very much for the challenge x

  2. Am I right in thinking you heat embossed and then put through an embossing folder ? didn't it come out well:) great images you have used and the ferris wheel clock is a clever idea
    A great take on the circle theme

  9. Lovely circle piece. Guess the reason it "sunk" when heated was the many layers of pulp like stuff the mat was made from. Now we know for next time.
    The happy accident turned out good in the end, it looks fabulous. Quite grungy and I love how you have used that centre piece for it. The addition of the guys and the TH piece finish it off perfectly.
    Thanks for joining us at JFF - Hugs, Neet x
