GOING ROUND IN A CIRCLE

Before Orange Esmeralda was a blogger she was a card maker, making cards under the original name of "Orange Esmeralda Cards".  So when Orange Esmeralda, the new blogger, discovered blog challenges to make cards, she was ecstatic.
The latest challenge at CASology is to make a card which includes a circle.





I started with this.  Not a circle - yet.


It's actually one of Jaggy's toys.

Those of you who followed me on flickr or via Sunday Postcard Art might remember Jaggy helping Mrs. Spiky to welcome her friends for coffee.  You can see them here.

I recoloured it.




Gave it a twirl.




and made it into a card.




Now where are Jaggy's other toys?

  2. Just fascinating! Jaggy has an interesting but rather boring looking toy. That is until Mrs. OE got ahold of it and gave it a twirl! Love seeing these processes. You've got me fooled that you aren't a geeky nerd.

  14. This turned out so well! I love that you used a very dark background to set off the warm colors. I also really like the "manly" card in your last post. I really appreciate that you keep playing with images and remain open to all the possibiities until you find just the right one.
