Circles and Lines

Hello hope you are keeping warm, with the return of winter in my part of England (returned with a vengeance) :( Brr. BUT it did mean I got to do some crafting as far to cold for the garden.
The Artful times ladies (Von & Neet) are asking for Circles / Lines or Spots / Stripes great makes by Von and Neet.
I must admit I did a lot of thinking and not a lot of doing just couldn't seem to settle on a design, I think the cold got to my brain. So I did this little comedy tag :) I used water colour card and covered it with old book paper and gave it a wash of acrylic paint cream colour. I then punched out circles and gave each a wash of paint, stamped with lines. The smaller circles are punched from striped paper.
Balloons or flowers? well I settled on flowers as the little bees thought so (Bees have stripes). I doodled lines around the edge of the tag. Thanks for dropping by to look. Keep warm hugs Sandra X

Hi Sandra. Thanks for your well wishes - it's been a bit of long haul but things can only better.
This is sweet tag with lots of lovely details. Great take on the challenge.
It's very cold here too and I had to go out in it today - FREEZING!
