I used a Ebosser folder by Teresa Collins called Woodgrain Cottage. The chalkboard sentiments are from GKD Designs stamp set that is sadly retired. I created the crick wall with a Creative Expressions stencil and embossing paste, coloured with Distress ink - Fired Brick, when it was dry, I added some copper Perfect Pearls and set it with a little hairspray.

Dotty About Outlawz

Happy Monday

It has been a sad week since my last Outlawz post, my dear friend Chana has decided to step down from the team, she has been out intrepid leader for such a long time and I will miss her terribly. The bad news for the team is they will now have to put up with me leading them, with the lovely Linda Webber as my right hand girl, I promise to do my best for not only the team, but all you lovely people who take time to enter our challenges each week.

So as the title says we are going a little dotty this week, as the theme for The Greetings Card challenge is "Polkadots"

Our lovely sponsor for this challenge is 

My card uses the image - Heels Polkadots


I started by colouring the image with Copic markers, and then fussy cut it out. I added some Stickles, this I will admit is a first I think for me, I purchased this product in several colours a couple of years ago in a sale, and there they have sat. Well perhaps you may see them and some Perfect Pearls popping up occasionally in future. I used Spellbinders Card Creator Matting Basics B and Polkadots  and also the M-Bossabilities folder Graduated Dots, to complete my project, you may recognise the flower from yesterdays post, it was a left over that was just begging to be used.
