Polka Dots over at Stampotique Challenge

Hi Everyone
Well rain stopped play today! it's been absolutely shocking, weather wise, here in the North West it just hasn't stopped raining. So after frightening the floors with the hoover that was enough of that housework malarky I decided to have some crafty play time.
 It has been absolutely ages since I have played along with the Stampotique Designers Challenge, my beloved Stampotique wooden friends have been gathering dust, work, life and other crafty commitments have prevented me having much spare time, that is until today!!! I also wanted to make a card for my sisters birthday tomorrow so this was the perfect excuse.

The theme over at Stampotique Designers Challenge is 'Polka Dots'. Mine come in the form of stenciled dots and a touch of dotty washi tape. Background has been created by using Leanie Pujol die 'in a spin' cut from the background card and then cutting it again on a background scrap that I had stamped the "Bla Bla Bla" stamp all over. I then glued the white cut back into the card and using the waste from the coloured card pieced it all back in. I have used 'Relaxin' and coloured her with pencils, cut out and applied the card with 3D foam. 

Sentiment is from Dylusions. Matted onto black card and then onto a card blank.
It's been really good to ink Stampotique stamps up lets hope next time isn't as long.
Thanks for stopping by
