Hello everyone! One of my favourite things with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog is the great variety in challenge themes, you really never know what you are going to get and this week is no exception. We have another super fun challenge for you, a Carnival challenge. There are lots of options with this theme, be inspired by the colours of carnivals, a specific detail, maybe scrap about a circus memory, etc.
I had photos taken in a vintage carousel and thought this was the perfect time to scrap them.
I wanted to mimic the ornate mirrors on the carousel and gold embossed a frame on cream paper. The centre was cut out and I inked the frame with Tumbled Glass. A mirror sheet was placed behind the frame, which looks like a real mirror (and is therefore hard to photograph).
I hope you will join us this week and it could be you who will win the $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp, as always drawn randomly.
Thank you for stopping by!
