Ring, Ring - Bling, Bling



Good morning blogland and a warm welcome to my new followers.  Today I am posting my altered dictionary page for the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge.  The letter this fourtnight is "R" and my chosen word is ring.

 
A ring was placed around my chosen word and a few other associated words, the pages were coloured with distress inks in picked raspberry, mowed lawn and peacock feathers.   Using a set of Spellbinder circle dies I cut out 4 rings in different sizes, these were stamped  in the DI colours with the circle stamp from the Bitty Grunge stamp set by Stampers Anonymous.  Picking certain words from the variations on ring I set about finding some pictures/stamps etc to use,  the telephone, dancing children, circus and engaged lady are all digi stamps, and the words are computer generated.  The pictures were coloured with watercolour crayons and cut out ready to fix to the pages with the stamped rings, the words were cut out and coloured with DI.  My letter "R" was stamped with the circle stamp and fixed to the page along with the rings, pictures and words.
 

 I added some white acrylic paint rings using an eggcup, to give the impression of cup marks on furniture and added a ring pull, I had to force hubby to have a beer last night so I could use the ring pull bit!


Can't wait to see what you other ladies have come up with your entries are always fabulous, I will be popping over to the Craft Barn Challenge soon to take a look.  A big thank you to all of you who leave me comments I love reading them.

Excellent word and you have really pulled out all the stops to show the versitility of the word "Ring". Love how you have also used circles (rings) and ring stamps, brilliant. BJ
