Going Dotty...Challengewise, at Least


Greetings and thanks so much for stopping by. This is the week of the bi-weekly Creative Card Crew challenge and we are challenged to go dotty. I have so many deadlines lately that some days I think I am going dotty. But seriously, I love polka-dots so this was a fun challenge for me. I used another image from a recently discovered digital artist - Lindsay of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. She had a great sale over the weekend (sorry, it's over now) so I purchased several sets of her digital images. She does have some freebies on her site, plus her sets are very reasonable so it's worth a visit to see if you like her style. This image is from a set called Doode Flowers. I think it looks very country, which is a style I favor. And, again, I went to my digital files for both the paper piecing and for the designer paper, which I printed on my home printer.

I used an Onare paper piercing template on the kraft card stock which I sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The border punch used is the new SU one from Sell-a-Bration. I think everything else is self explanatory, but if you have any questions, I would be glad to answer them.

Be sure to stop by the Creative Card Crew blog and check out the beautiful work by the rest of the team. Our sponsor this week is Crafty Addicts and they are giving away an adorable House Mouse stamp.
