Polka dotty!

Thursday, March 25, 2010

This is a fun little card I put together for the Poppy Seed Challenge at Poppy Paperie. This weeks seeds (elements) were Buttons, Polka Dots and Light Moss. I did go a bit crazy with the polka dots! I hope my digital button qualifies as an element!

I love this digital flower stamp by Nina Brackett I got at Squigglefly, it's part of a set, the others are fab too! I really am loving the versatility of digital stamps, especially the resizing options. Anyway, I printed the flower on light white card and colored it in using Creative Inspirations Paints. I used blush on the petals, fuchsia on the tips, canary for the button centre and evergreen for the stitching. The paints give a nice little shimmer detail to the flower. I stamped the polka dots on the petals in fuchsia. I gently folded the petals upward to make them stand up.

The background paper is a digital paper from Attic Treasures Collection. For the petals I just drew them freehand in the same paper and cut out. I softened the edges with chalks, rubbed a little ink on the edges and folded lightly in half. The sentiment is from Anna Griffin and I softened the edges using blending chalks. I added some grosgrain ribbon to finish.
