Life Savers and Gloss!

This fortnight's Challenge is all about the sweet little ring of sugar known as a Lifesaver!

The packet is small enough to fit into your pocket and there are multiple flavours, to suit all types really.  Eat a whole packet and get a very sore tongue! They come in many different colours (flavours) and are round with a hole in the middle. 

My card was started when I watched Andrea of Annabelle Stamps fame, in a video at Stamp Embellish Create demonstrate how to create a very quick background with either paint, ink or a colouring pen such as a Copic.  I followed her instructions and created several backgrounds, and one of them I used to stamp onto, using TH's Distressed Ink Black Soot, and some images and sentiment from Annabelle Stamps Fanciful Flowers. The one I used uses Copics to create the background. 

I added three small buttons from Stampin' Up, and mounted my experiment onto a scrap piece of black card before remounting it onto a white hammered card blank. My buttons have lots of gloss and are round, while the stripes form the colours! 

Now it's your turn to enter into Lollipop Ladies Challenge #44.  Good prizes and a chance to be a Guest Design Team Member up for grabs.

Great take on the challenge. The fun colours, stripes and round things (aka buttons, lol) work perfectly!
