Splitcoast Tutorial: Circle Spinner

This week's tutorial over at Splitcoast is a Circle Spinner card - it's a fun variation on the spinner cards we used to make with a single straight cut, and dies make all the difference! Here's my card... and I thought I'd show off a few of the new Impression Obsession stamps in my sample! These are from Lindsay Ostrom's line - she has such a fun style.

Instead of using a contrasting paper, I stamped the image twice and colored the images up the same with Copic and Touch markers - this let me position the spinner track over the image without losing any of the details.

You can see how the two images layer together - and the bat spins (or it's supposed to!) around the little track. I'm having some issues getting it all the way around - not sure what science I'm missing... but it's still fun.

Stamps I used: Mr. P. Umpkin, Bart, Going Batty 

Remember you still have time to comment on the IO designers' blogs for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate - we're giving away 4 of them! For all the details and links, check the IO Blog. All the new Fall/Winter stamps are available in the IO webstore now, and headed to a stamp store near you. (By the way, if you ever see my stamps in your LSS, will you send me a picture?
