New SplodgeAway blog

So the time has finally come after many months behind the scenes the SplodgeAway blog has gone live be sure to pop over and check it out, in the coming weeks and months there will be tutorials, challenges, giveaways we already have guest designers lined up so what are you waiting for! 
Here is my first design work for splodge away 

I wanted to make an impact for my first card as part of the Splodge Away design team, so what better way than a 3D circle card using a lovely Tilda image.

I cut out 7 circles of splodge Away elegance card on my cricut and then used a nestie to cut the inner circle on 5 of them, I then used my splodge Away mat to blend sail boat blue Adirondack ink on all but one of the circles , the card takes the ink perfectly and with the help of the splodge Away mat you can’t fail to get a good result. I coloured my image with promarkers and between each sandwiched layer of circles I added an element layer one was the sponged cloud and grass background, layer 2 was the tree, layer 3 was the clouds in the sky and finally the fourth layer is Tilda. On the outer layer I sandwiched acetate in between 2 of the circles, so that the cover was see thru. I then made a card hinge to join the outer cover to the front. I then added the lovely flowers to the front to frame the focal point, and then last but not least I added a dusting of diamond stickles, as I do with all of my cards. I hope you like my first card and get some inspiration from it. Thanks for joining us on the splodge Away blog.
