Polka dot flowers

Hey there. Playing in a few challenges today.TGIF wants some polka dots and Simon Says Stamp is all about Showers and/or flowers. I combined the flowers and polka dots for this birthday card.

I used an old flower stamp from the former Angel Company to create this. First of all, I stamped small polka dots (stamp from PTI) using Hero Arts Unicorn White ink. Heat set, then stamped the flowers using Red Royal dye ink from Hero Arts. The white polka dots showed through beautifully. Added some leaves to fill in the gaps.

Sentiment is from Avery Elle.

I used dark green cardstock for my card base to make the red pop even more.

I tried using the kissing technique on this first, but it just didn't give me the results I wanted. So this really came about by trial and error.

 Thanks for stopping by!
