Spots and Dots at Whimsy

Hello all, this is my very first post for the Whimsy Digi Design Team!  How exciting is that?  The Challenge we have for you this week at the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenges is 'Spots and Dots'  I've used spotted grosgrain ribbon and dotted pearls around as accents.


This is the first time I've used digital papers and I have to say, I love them!  These Michelle R Designs Blue Linen Floral papers are gorgeous vintage style and I've added some ink on the edges to add to the vintage look.  The image is a digi from StampArt called Full Bloom. My apologies, I incorrectly listed it as a LiaStampz when this post first went live. I've coloured it up with copic markers and spica pens.  The Sentiment is Spring Sentiment 5 from Raindrop Echo Designs.

A funny thing happened on the way to making this card.  See those lovely pearly flower centers?  Well, they are tiny adhesive pearls, I put them on and then completely forgot about them and ran the image through the bigshot to die cut it and it squished the little pearls flat!  After a moment of sheer panic....I realised that they looked OK like that and I finished the card off.  I have to laugh because, I 'discover' a lot of things by 'accident' just like that.


Head on over to the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenges and see what the talented Digi Design Team has to inspire you

Cheers,

  5. Very pretty! I had to chuckle at your story. I'm so glad that I'm not the only one that does things like that. Who knew the pearls would flatten and looks so pretty?
