Polka Dot Quickie...


A little tribute to my WOSFF, Laurie... polka dots.  She loves 'em.  Soooooooo I decided to give it a shot today and came up with this.

I love this stamp from Island Trees... easily creepy-able for Halloween, and yet, add a little Stickles and you've got a winter wonderland.  And did you notice... the moon is magically the same size as the polka dots.  Yep... more rubber stamp surgery.


I simply snipped the moon (or sun) away from the image so I can use it all by it's lonesome.  This way I can add a moon to the other images in the set, or... create a little polka dot action.


Stamps:  Island Trees, Hello Snow (retired)Paper:  White UltraSmooth & Black cardstocks, misc. lavendar cardstock
Ink:  Noir Palette, VersaMark 
Other:  Scor-Pal & Scor-Bug, Pop Dots, misc. sage ribbon, Stardust Stickles, Stardust glitter pen



And I love VersaMark... have I told you that lately?  Who needs separate matchy-matchy inks when I can use one pad of VM... yep, VM rates a 'me likey'... hands down.... or hands up... or hands up & down with a little 'whoop whoop'...

What do you think?
