Outlines Rubber Stamp Challenge # 18

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challenge.  This week our challenge was to "Round the Corners".


I love the idea of the Design Enclosure Large (F-740) stamp.  Having a secret message or image on a card is such a fun element... and I thought it was perfect for this challenge.  The image itself has a rounded edge flower.  Of course, I added additional round elements... rounded corners on my central panel, the bottom edges of the card are rounded and the buttons.  I stamped and embossed the Design Enclosure Large (F-740) image.  I colored simply with copic markers to match the papered paper.

To keep my design enclosure closed, I used a button (at the center of my flower).  Using a glue dot that's been worked a little on my hands to take the tackiness down a bit, the larger petal on the flower on the right fits gently under the button.

To add a little bit of glimmer, I carefully painted some of the open areas with Illuminate Smooch paint

Because I used Copic markers to color the image, I covered the inside of the Design Enclosure with a coordinating patterned paper.  And I didn't add a note yet, but it would be perfect to add a love note!

Here's a peak of the open Design Enclosure:

I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration.
