Alpha Challenge - W

W is the letter for the latest Alpha Challenge  at the Craft Barn but there is a twist - we have to put circles in the background.
The word I used is Wheels.

I painted the background with DeckoArt acrylic paints then stamped the bicycle. I then coloured one of the wheels with a felt tip and randomly stamped the wheel on the page. I then drew the circles using a circle stencil and my Sharpie pens. I then stamped the honeycomb pattern with white acrylic paint and used my white Posca pen and black pen to write the letter W and Wheels.
The stamps I used are.
Stampers Anonymous for the bicycle.
The Artistic Stamper for the white honeycomb.

  I always forget to do a close up of the word in the dictionary - but I remembered this time.


  1. What a good choice of word to tie in with the circles. I really like the white honey comb stamping against the pink/red painted bg.

  2. That is so cute. Don't you just love all these challenges out here. They are so much fun. I love to look and see what everyone is doing even if I don't enter the challenge. You always come up with neat and imaginative ideas.
    Hugs Mary

  4. Fabulous design to this Hazel. The wheels and the circles complement each other perfectly.

  12. Hi Hazel - internet now fully functional so I'm back! Sorry to be missing for a while - it's been a nightmare.
    Great page for your dictionary - I've barely started mine so I need to get a move on. I considered wheels and then another word caught my eye but I do love what you've done here.
