Going Dotty

Good morning! I’m so sorry this didn’t go up last night as promised but I couldn’t get online – anyway better late than never, welcome to our new challenge!

For this challenge we’re going dotty!! Polka dots to be precise – we’d like to see some polka dots on your creations, this can be polka dot stamps, dotty ribbon, punched dots, doodled dots or any other interpretation of polka dots you can think of!

To be in with a chance of winning a randomly drawn PTI goody bag create a project with polka dots on it that uses at least one PTI product.

For my sample I used the polka dot Christmas tree from the ‘Tree Trimming Trio’ set, and made it in three colourways – it’s a simple design so great for mass production.

The tree was embossed with Versamark and White Embossing Powder onto Kraft card – the ornaments were punched out then covered with an clear epoxy stickers:

Recipe:
Stamps – Tree Trimming Trio

Ink – Versamark/Enchanted Evening/Aqua Mist/Sweet Blush
Card – White/Kraft/Enchanted Evening/Aqua Mist/Sweet Blush

Ribbon – Swiss dot – Enchanted Evening/Aqua Mist/Sweet Blush

Other – Epoxy clear stickers/corner rounder punch/whit embossing powder

Enchanted Evening:


Sweet Blush:


And my favourite (of course!) – Aqua Mist:

And here’s Aimes’ card – “made for my very own honey for our anniversary – he really is my star and he really does send me dotty at times ;D)”

Recipe:
Stamps – Star Prints/Fancy Flourishes
Ink: New Leaf/Dark Chocolate
Card – New Leaf/Kraft/Vintage Cream/Dark Chocolate Bitty Dot Basics
Other – New Leaf Button/Dark Chocolate Button/New Leaf Twill/Jute Ribbon Twine/White Gel Pen

To enter the challenge leave a link to your card in the comments section below by 9am GMT, November 2nd 2009. Your card must use at least one product from Papertrey Ink. While we love to see entries from around the world I’m afraid we can only send prizes within Europe.

Thanks and I hope you have some dotty fun!!
