It's That Time Again!

     It's time for  this weeks Art Impressions Challenge!  It is called Lots of Dots, and it was such fun to create!  I was fortunate enough to have my DD come home this weekend and bring me all of her Art Impression stamps to use.  Woo Hoo, now I have more to choose from!

The AI stamps I used are:

     I did a narrow card and it will be a thank you for some friends we dined with the other night!  The base is soft suede from SU!, with white card stock and a perfectly matched polka dot scrap I found hiding in my stash.  The images were stamped in tuxedo black, Memento ink, and colored with Copic Markers.  Sponging was created with VersaMagic inks, and images were cut out and layered with Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals dies.  Some shimmer was added with a Sakura clear star pen.  For accents, I used twine and a red button to coordinate with my cheese, and add a pop of color. 

     It is raining with a chance of flooding again.  Mother Nature is sure not happy this summer!  It was another weekend of wedding chores.  Time is moving so quickly!  I am just happy to be able to squeak in the couple challenges I am trying to be faithful to.  Thanks for stopping by, and all the notes of encouragement I have been receiving!

Mary Anne,
This is perfection. Love the way the dots pop behind the image it really makes it stand out. Coloring is perfect as always.

This is so pretty! Love the narrow card and the image of yummy cheese and bread. Sounds like a nice time with your DD and friends. The weather has just been crazy all over, we are drier than dust and everyone else is getting too much rain :(
