Basic Grey Challenge 26

All round without a corner in sight!! I hope this fits the bill. A great Basic Grey Challenge this time, not as easy as you might think, my first attempt had a star on it until I realised how many sharp angles there are on a star, then remembered these woodware stamps from the jungle retro set, no corners at all! The paper is from the Sophie collection and while still grungy, it has lovely bright colours which really lifted my mood. Colour thereapy for the cost of a couple of sheets of paper and the thrill of the challenge too!
The little circle domes were cut out of the paper and domed using the dome former that I use for my jewellery, I thought they looked like the paper bits from craftwork cards.

Not done much crafting this week as I've been reorganising my stash and putting up new shelves n stuff to house the growing collection of stamps. Who got me into this lark I wonder!! Was really pleased with my finished craft room till Clarky J sent me this link to pictures of a fellow crafters den Scrappin Connie Now I think I need to redo everything!!

Tara for now

Fabulous work. I think we would have accepted a star as the focal point - but I have to say the funky retro shapes are just perfect.
Fantastic papers and colours.
Thanks for joining in at BG.
