ABC - G for Going Dotty

This time at ABC our challenge is Going Dotty, so we want to see your projects with spots and dots.

We are sponsored by Little Darlings Rubber Stamps with 1 Little Darlings, or Cutie Pie Stamp and Marker Pop with a $20 gift voucher for their store.

G Going Dotty Dark

I have used a Saturated Canary stamp called ‘Jules’ and coloured her with various green copics. My papers are all from different digital kits, some of which I edged with peeled paint DI. The holographic dies are from Memory Box and the curles down the edges are the waste from the border die I used top and bottom of the card. The Dies beneath Jules are Marianne dies, and she is sitting on a diecut from Spellbinders.

The ribbon, pins and sparkly gemstone were all in my stash, although I coloured the pins and gemstone with some of the copics I used on the image so they would tone in. I also went over the dots on her dress and tights with a sakura sparkly pen and likewise her frilly petticoat and the bow in her hair. The pic below, although over exposed, shows up the glittery bits much better than can be captured by the camera in normal light.
