Less Is More Challenge no. 38
Less Is More, challenge no. 38. It's all about polka dots. As a little girl I had a favorite dress in navy blue with white polka dots that I loved to wear. I cried when I grew out of it. Since then, my polka dots have been more subdued in the form of an occasional blouse. Uh, an entire dress would no longer work on this 60ish frame I inhabit. So what a great way to have fun with polka dots by using them on cards. In fact, I own a BG polka dot stamp, and three embossing folders of various sizes of dots. I sure do love 'em.
This is a top folded A2 card. The beautiful big flower is from Hero Arts, and is called Tall Flower...simple enough huh? I also stamped the flower on a piece of scrap maize cs, and dry embossed with one of the polka dot CB folders. Then I cut the largest blossom and mounted it with pop dots. Hmm, do pop dots count as polka dots? The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set called All Occasions. It's my "go to" set when I need an all on one line sentiment. I colored with Copics after stamping the flower in Memento tuxedo black. The sentiment is stamped using an ancient stamp pad from Personal Stamp Exchange in Bubble Gum. Thank goodness I had the sense to buy a refill for it long before I knew I was to be addicted to stamping.
