Stampotique Challenge goes Polka Dot Crazy

Hi everyone

Just nipping in to post a card tutorial and to join in with the SDC 193 Stampotique challenge this week!  I thought this card would fit the bill as I always like to include a few dots in any arty backgrounds I make and this card was no exception!

I used my Dots Fades stencil for tiny polka dots and some sequin waste for larger ones!  Don't forget the dots I made with splattering too ;-) This tutorial looks at how you can create fun arty background like I did using a variety of items and mediums.  I think they are perfect for showcasing your fabulous Stampotique stamps - let me know what you think.

Click on this link if you have a project featuring polka dots that you want to enter into this weeks SDC 193 challenge - there is a new challenge each week so don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss a thing.  I am a relatively new collector of Stampotique stamps and I have to say that they always give me a chance to be adventurous and a little crazy ;-)

The stamps I have used are designed by Magda and Daniel Torrente for Stampotique.  Here are the cutting dimensions:

Yellow card - 11 1/2" x 8" scored and folded at 5 3/4"
White card - 4 1/2" x 6 3/4 " - cut 2
Navy card - 4 3/4" x 7 " - cut 2

As always I show you how to make your inner match your outer!!!  That's it from me I am off out into the sunshine to do some pottering in the garden.  I hope you find the tutorial useful as there are a million versions of this technique that you can come up with to create fun backgrounds for your stamps!

Thank you for popping by X
