Seein' spots?



Over the weekend, I made more dotty backgrounds using my favorite Hero Arts stamp. Can you believe it's not a flower or a butterfly, but DOTS? I stamped with Versamark on white cardstock, clear embossed, and then sponged on distress inks. So much fun--I can do it all day and not get bored....or see spots!



I really wanted the Pure Innocence umbrella image and could only find it at My Favorite Things as a clear stamp. Because it's an exclusive design to MFT, it won't be turned into a digi. So I bought her, and didn't realize she was so small. I guess I'm spoiled with being able to resize digis...but I love her anyway.

Thanks for visiting today...can you believe it's February?

Stamps: Pure Innocence, Hero Arts , My Sentiments Exactly
Catdstock: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento, Distress inks, Versamark
Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities, Martha Stewart butterfly punch,
clear embossing powder, gems, ribbon, pop dots
