It is time for another challenge with Speedy the Cat's Friends http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com. This week Colleen wants us to use polka dots on our cards. I have to be honest with you when I saw this I thought POLKA DOTS! How am I going to do that? After thinking about it for a little bit I thought OK this won't be too bad.
For my card this week I chose to use an oldie but a goodie stamp set. I saw a card made last week using this set and I said to myself I need that set. I am using Greetings of the Season from 2010. I chose red cardstock from Mark's Finest Papers http://www.marksfinestpapers.com/servlet/StoreFront Season's Greetings cardstock pack. I stamped my image on to my die cut using Basic Black ink, then I colored the image with my Copic Markers Y15, E15, E18, 100, G09, G28, R27 and R46. Once I stamped my image and sentiment onto my die cuts and colored them I brushed the edges of the die cuts with Glorious Green ink pad. I used polka dot designer paper mounted on my red cardstock. Once the designer paper was mounted I added my image and my sentiment. Then I found this great red velvet ribbon that I added to the card and mounted pearl gems to the ribbon.
On the inside of my card I mounted white cardstock and put a sentiment on the card which I do not do often.
I hope you enjoy my card. Thanks for stopping and commenting. Make sure to stop my SpeedyTV and join the new fun we have going on there http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com.
