Stamp-a-Faire 2016: Pointillism Play
Yes! I have finished all of the Papertrey Ink Stamp-a-Faire challenges! I had to take a picture of this one indoors since it's 10:40pm at night now, but I managed to do it. I'm so proud of myself. Here is my card for the Pointillism Play challenge. It was a bit time-consuming to do all the dot stamping, and I can't say I would do this very often, but I really like the look. It's so unique!
I followed Heather Nichols' instructions exactly and used the same Year of Flowers: Violets stamp set that she did. All those purples are so pretty on the petals. I really love it. All of the color was added with some small circles from Polka Dot Basics. I did the same thing with green inks on the leaves.
I decided to put my flower on a Noted: Scalloped Square card base using Kraft cardstock. It certainly makes a statement on the smaller card size. I stamped "hello" from Happy Hydrangeas in black ink directly on the card. On the white narrow banner from Tag Sale #10, I stamped the rest of my sentiment using the Don't Forget to Write set. I love this sweet little card!
