Pull Out Some Punches at Gingersnap Creations

It's time for the Wednesday Spicy Supply Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations, and this time the challenge is to use Punches.  I know that I sometimes tend to neglect my punches, so this was a fun one.  I wanted to keep with the current "Ancient Ages" theme at GC, so I pulled out my (sadly retired) Cornish Heritage Farms set called Reach 4 the Stars.  I stamped some images and my sentiment onto some Basic Grey "Basics" paper.  Then I made a masterboard of sorts with lots of the astronomy images from the set.  I used circle punches (3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/8") to punch both from my masterboard and from some black cardstock.  Then I just adhered the circles in a random order, using the black circles as shadows.  Oh, and of course, I distressed all the edges of everything in one way or another ;).  A little spinner from Sir Tim seemed appropriate to finish it off.

I hope you have time to pull some punches and play along!

I cannot say I am much of a fan of punches, actually own very few. Looking at your card I can say that you have used a punch in a very imaginative way and it has added such dimension to your card. I might need a re-think on my punches! Lynne x
