TMTA - Geometric

Very quick post tonight. I'm late in from work as I had shopping to buy for the Team Retreat on Friday. I wanted to complete this ATC that I began in my lunch break but had hair to wash. Tea is almost cooked so here it is. The TMTA theme this week is Geometric. I used an off-cut piece of my distress inks background, see below for technique I use as it works for me best. (colours Brushed Courdroy, Fired Brick & Tattered Rose) Then i took my MM eyelet setter & punched intertwining circles to represent the ring of friendship. I stamped the CI image onto separate card & coloured with distress inks. Then mounted onto plain ATC sized card so the circles would show up better. It looks effective but boy, those circles were hard on the hands!!

On a very sad note, my workmate & good friend, (for this read partner in crime) Louise lost her grandfather today. He has been ill for some time & he slipped away at lunch time.
