Happy Fall Mini Circle Card (bastel-traum challenge #93)

 Hi everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge over at bastel-traum and our theme for the challenge #93 is Autumn/Fall. :o)

The challenge starts today, September 15th, 2020, at 9 AM, CEST (UTC +2) and ends on October 15th, 2020, at 8:55 AM, CEST (UTC +2). Find all the details about the challenge, rules and prizes in a challenge post (here).

And here is my take on the challenge: Happy Fall Mini Circle Card. :o)

To make this card I was inspired with my own card that I created last year (here).

I used stamps from a super adorable Gerda Steiner Designs 'Happy Fall' stamp set, that I won in April 2017 from GSD. :o)

How I made my card....

First I created a background panel. I stamped randomly leaves and an acorn on a Kraft paper in watermark stamping technique using VersaMark Watermark Ink. Then I die cut a wonky stitched circle from the paper and stamped a sentiment in black on it.

Then I made a card base. I cut two circles from a white cardstock paper and glued them together on the top.

I glued the panel on the circle card base.

Next up were images. I stamped an adorable happy squirrel, leaves and acorns on a watercolor paper and colored them in watercolor technique with Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut images and traced their edges with a black marker.

Then I stamped same images again on a white cardstock paper. I colored images with the black marker and a black fine liner and fussy cut them, leaving thin white border around them. I glued watercolored images over the grey ones. I did this to make images thicker, as the watercolor paper I use is very thin.

I love dimension on my cards. I glued 3-D foams (2 different thickness) on each image, glued images on the card and my card was finished. I love how my card turned out!! :o)

Card measurements: d = 83 mm (3 1/4")
