Circles - Stamping Dragon Challenge

Hello crafters and followers.  Are you having a good day?

My post today was a challenge for me as I am not known for doing shaped cards and my Stamping Dragon DT challenge was 'circles'.  So I decided to go hybrid and use Craft Artist.

My shopping list
Digi Stamp- Circles Floral Flame
Backing Papers from Lemonade Paper Pack
Serif Craft Artist 2
Sizzix flourishes
Spellbinders Sun kissed Fleur stamps and die.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - tea dye
Copic Ciao - Y02 | YR04
Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder - Tropic Yellow Lustre

I started with blank 8x8 page and the imported my two backing papers, placed on of them onto my page and stamped out my circle.  I them imported the digi stamp, used the cutout facility to cut out the centre of the digi stamp and when I was happy with that I then converted my digi stamp into an intelligent frame.  This meant that when I imported my photograph I could just drop it into my digi stamp frame.  Before I placed my photograph in I did change the colour of the frame.

My 2nd backing paper I used to punch out a couple more circles, roughened the edges and placed them behind my digi stamp frame.  I then printed it all out onto card and cut around the circle.

I used my copics to do a bit of colouring around the edges of my digi stamp and frame plus the butterflies.  Placed it onto a 8x8 card and cut around that too. I was then ready for my embellishments which are the spellbinders sunkissed fleur stamps and die plus the cosmic shimmer embossing powders all topped off with sizzix flourishes in brown card.
