Going dotty!

There’s nothing like leaving it to the last minute – it’s my speciality!!

I’ve just gone to enter this card and realised I’ve missed the deadline for I Love Promarkers:(

I followed this sketch:Plus they wanted to see spots/dots.

These are the challenges I’m not too late for:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge : Pink,Green and Flowers

Creative Card Crew Challenge : Going Dotty

Totally Papercrafts : Pink and Green

The Pixie Cottage: Circles

Sew Many Challenges : Let’s Punch It

I’ve used a Diane Duda  image I acquired in a swap.This one is called Believe.She’s been coloured with Promarkers.Highlights have been added using a white gel pen and although it doesn’t show in the pic I have gone over the wings,crowns and star with a clear glitter pen.The papers are Making Memories and the card is Core’dinations So Mod.She’s been mounted onto a Nellie’s Multi Frame Die from the Recangles set and the slider has also been cut from the same set.I’ve used a Martha Stewart Flower Punch and Stamp set to create the flowers around the edge of the frame.They were part of a recent QVC  TSV and I have to admit I was quite nervous using them for the first time.But I needn’t have worried they were a delight to use and breezed through the card.I shall definitely have to make more use of them!Some brads from my stash have been added to the centres.I was going to add brads to the ends of the strips but none seemed to be the right shade of pink.I’ve also noticed a lot of people seem to be using ‘Card Candy’ in their place on their cards so I thought I’d try making my own.I used a plier punch to cut the circles then turned them over onto a foam mat and embossed them with a large ball tool.They’ve been adhered with Glue Dots.The sentiment is from an old See D’s set.The ribbon is from a £1 pack that can be found in The Works or QD branches.
