Dots Challenge

Today I received my Splitcoasters newsletter for the week and one of the techniques was Bandana stamping. It is about using a white gel pen to doodle and make a background like a bandana. Perfect also for this weeks Hero Arts challenge- dots.
I used HA CL068 Paisley patterns - stamped in black on blue card and used my gel pen to put dots around the paisley. Used a dotty ribbon and button to finish off. As my Cuttlebug is still being repair, I used the nestie die as a stencil and used the pen to go round the inside of the die and then cut it out and popped in onto the ribbon.
I enjoyed doing this technique and will do it again. It will make a great background for a male card.
Thanks for calling in.

This is a terrific card, Dawn - love the blue and orange together (one of my favorite color combos)!

I wanted to drop by and thank you for the Lemonade Stand Award you so graciously bestowed upon me over a month ago. Please forgive me for my tardy response to it - time and life just got away from me this time around. I'm so honored that you thought of me. I was going to return the favor with the Renee award, but it looks like you've already been thus honored! (RATS!) I'll getcha, girl! I'll get you an award before anybody else does and it's going to be soon!
