Seeing dots

 

Happy Saturday everyone!

So, it should come as no surprise that I LOVE background dies. The Altenew Doodled Dots cover die is no exception and I was fortunate enough to get mine during Dies to Die For’s recent Easter discount weekend. It is such a beautiful die – I’m looking forward to using it with an ink blended background, but first of all I decided to play along with this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge (pink, red, mint) and used it with some coloured cardstock.

(That cardstock really is mint-like in real life, honest! Unfortunately it looks quite aqua in my photos…)

I’d love to say these were quick makes. That would be a lie! It took HOURS to inlay all those little dots….. I may have got a little frustrated… but now that it’s over, I like having the set of three cards to compare! Plus three more cards to add to my ‘stock’!

To finish off the cards, I used dies from Savvy Stamps and Penny Black.

So, which one is your favourite?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Wow! I’m impressed with your patience on inlaying all of those teeny, tiny dots. The end result is great! Thanks for joining us for this week’s Color Throwdown!
