TPS #76- Circles

Welcome to the next challenge at The Paper Shelter, and a big hello to the new design team members who have joined in the fun !!  This week the theme is "Circles" and I have colored up the gorgeous image "A Mucha Influence - Summer" available here.

After coloring the image with Copics, I wanted to give the card the look of stained glass, so I left the center untouched and painted the rest of the image with Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint.  When the crackle was dry, I lightly rubbed some Antique Linen distress ink over it to highlight the cracks.  The clear drops around the center frame are clear acrylic decorative fillers from the local big box store.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.
The Paper Shelter offers a wonderful prize for the winner of the challenge - if you use one of their adorable images you could win a $20.00 gift certificate, but if you use another image you can still win a prize of three digital images of your choice from the store.  For more details please check out the challenge blog here, and leave some love for the newest members of both Team A and B while you are there!!
