I'm so excited to be sharing with you my love for polka dots. Almost every thing I own is dotty!
Polka dots are great fun as a main feature or as a delicate accent to artwork. My other love is my favourite colour combination, pink and turquoise. So for this weeks challenge I'm inviting you to have fun with my favourite things: Pink, Turquoise and Polka Dots! I can't wait to see your creations, so get your rubber out and have lots of fun creating :)
Here is my dotty card.
Used Portfolio Pastels through a small circle stencil to create the background, used the bump technique to add a little dimension. Drew larger circles over the top using the same pink and turquoise Portfolios then used some free Indigo Blu stamps for the flowers, dragonfly and the sentiment.
Coloured the flowers using the new limited edition Inktense Pencils, used carmine Pink, deep rose, turquoise, beech green, spring green and sun yellow to colour the flowers.
Hand drew the stems which are not quite right on the pink flowers, perhaps i should have left them floating like large bubbles… Yes, that would have worked much better! Hindsight is a wonderful thing lol. Hand drew the black circles also.
Made this for a friend for their birthday. Here are another couple of images.
The envelope was stamped with the larger set of grasses from the free Indigo Blu set.
Thanks for dropping by, any help on creating good stems on flowers would be appreciated.
