Because...

Hello... i'm late i'm late.... for a very important date..!!!

I hope all Paperbabe fans managed to catch Kim on Hochanda on Friday 2nd February 
showcasing the new *Wonderland* themed templates and stamps 
ALL available to purchase in the Paperbabe Store .. YAY..!!

*****

But for now it's all about *Dots* over on the Paperbabe Challenge #66
and for the next fortnight we would like to see you get a little dotty.

Here's a quick card I made in a style that I really struggle to create..


Using the dots stencils I created backgrounds, blending candied apple oxides 
through the stencils onto hammered card and then using up the ink by spritzing and 
then running them through an embossing machine to transfer those left overs. 
Fibreboard embellishments and extras were coloured using posca pens.


Stamping the word *Because* onto the dotty background stamp also 
included in the stamp set I heat embossed in white. and cut down to size.
Layering up those embellishments I printed out a dotty sentiment.


Flat back pearls embellish the substrates with glossy accents 
applied on top to bring those elements to life.


As Valentines day looms this would make a super card
or even just a note to say how much someone means to you!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
what ever you are up too..

Take Care & Stay Safe

Creative wishes

    1. So sad to hear you are not feeling too well Dorthe but i'm glad you came over to visit. My card was simply created using different sized dots stencils for the background and transferring ink from them by running the stencil through a big shot. I should have shown all the background pieces I created and the choices I had to choose from, it may have explained it all a little easier. Hope you are feeling better much better soon xx
