Dot, Dot, Dot!
It's Monday. You know what that means...time for another challenge from Outlines Rubber Stamp Company. This week the challenge is to incorporate Polka Dots somewhere in your design. Make sure you play along too for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Outlines. You can find all of the details on the Outlines Blog.
I love working with Polka Dots. I think they are so fun and whimsical, so a fun bright card is the result of my efforts.
I stamped the gorgeous image of Olivia 1002-I from Outlines with Marvy black dye ink onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers. Wanting to add dimension to Olivia's hair, I stamped her again onto the Neenah cardstock and colored the hair again. I pop-dotted the hair and adhered the pair of sunglasses from Dress It Up Buttons on her face. To give her the pearl necklace she is wearing, I dotted a line around her neck using an Ice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen. The Polka Dot shirt Olivia is wearing is paper pieced using patterned paper from Doodlebug Design, along with the flower centers, and the three dots along the bottom of the card. The white flowers, stamped from a portion of the Olivia image, was ran through the Cuttlebug with a Swiss Dot embossing folder to give them a little texture.
Patterned paper from Jillibean Soup's Watermelon Gazpacho pad are used for the green and white Polka Dot background, and the sentiment..."summer time is the best time", which came from a fun piece of paper that had summertime text. I thought it went nicely with the overall feel of this card.
A little bow of Baker's Twine was adhered to the card, and some pearl drops using the Ice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen put the finishing touches on this card.
I had a blast making this card, and I'm sure you will have a blast visiting the rest of the design team's blogs to see their Polka Dot creations.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.
