Circus Ring

Hello.  Welcome.  Went a bit crazy yesterday didn't I??  Wow, that's a personal record.  5 posts in one day.  Nothing like a deadline to get things moving right along LOL.  So, how has your day been??  Happy 1st of May.  Hope the month has started sunny for you.  Over at Marks Finest Papers this week the challenge is only use the center.  So here's my idea using a stamp from MFP lovely Tiger set.

As you see I am still in neutral mode.  I stamped the tiger and embossed with black embossing powder.  Then I water coloured the background and cut out using Spellbinders Decagon dies.  I cut the same size in black and offset it behing the tiger panel.  You might just be able to see the corners peeking out.  Then I cut the largest decagon in black to frame my tiger.  Mounted on a grey base and black edging and smudging to finish.
