Spirograph - stamping stylee


Happy Wednesday! We're half-way through the working week :)

Just poppin' in today to show a stamping experiment that took me back to my Spirograph days.


Spirograph was one of my favourite toys and past-times - just sittin' and creating cool patterns over and over...*sigh* I like that as a bigger kid, I'm still doing the same thing - just with stamps :)

This pattern is created with one circular image from Daily Designs (Papertrey Ink) and rotating it through 360 degrees. For those of you who are visual learners, here's a little guide:

Spirograph instructions

This card was also created for our new challenge on A Passion for Papertrey: Super Circles! I know the hexagon is so on trend right now, but it'd be nothing without the humble circle...after all, a hexagon is just a circle with straight edges and corners, right?! *wink*

Thanks so much for stopping by this li'l area of Blogland today! :)

Catch ya later!

Brilliant! I loved my Spirograph - my dad got it for me when I was in 1st grade and broke my ankle playing with my Lemon Twist! Good times!
