CCM 137 Dots

Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time around is to go dotty. NOT difficult for me as I am pretty sure I am more than half way there already!

137 Dotty

I created my dotty background by stencilling through a Prima Bubbles stencil with three different mauve shades of Distress Inks over some Imagination Crafts patterned paper. My image from A Day of Daisies called Hepburn Dress was coloured with copics and then I dotted some sharpie pen over the skirt to add more dots to my card.

The ribbons are from my stash and the diecut is an Anja one from Marianne. I added a couple of gems in her hair where she might have a hairband or ribbon around her up do, and also one to the sentiment, all of which I coloured with the same copic I used for her dress.

I am entering this into:-
