Still Seeing Spots

SPOTS, SPOTS, SPOTS.......are you seeing 
them everywhere? 


The current challenge at CAS-UAL FRIDAYS is SWEET SPOTS.  This is a great challenge!  Although I have plenty of patterned paper with polka dots,I decided to design my own polka dot paper.  I began by using the eraser end of a pencil and stamped a strip of multicolored dots onto my white cardstock and used a Q-tip to add smaller black dots on the colored dots.  I purposefully tried not to center the black dots to make it look more random. I cut a scalloped like edge along the two outer edges of the dots leaving the top edge of the card intact.  I lifted this polka dot strip up and adhered a piece of black cardstock under it.  For the flowers, I created a series of  dots on white cardstock with a black marker.  I cut a flower shape from the black and white polka dotted paper, added a black center and fringed the flower. To make the flower pop, I added a black mat. I finished the card by writing the sentiment with a black marker.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
