HOT!!!!!! Dotty.......................................................

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
 I got to play yesterday with one of my new Kenny K images that I was thrilled to win, and yep I am sort of dotty over them all but decided to play with this one.  No only did I make a card it is another grand 21cm x 21cm creation, don't you just love the large cards, although when I had finished the sketch it sort of looked a little empty so I just had to fill it out a little, but the main elements of the sketch are still there.  I also made my own flowers and coloured my ribbon to match................well I needed a black ribbon and my pale pink one just did not cut the mustard, so those fabulous copics did me a real treat - hasn't it come up well, you just have to work this in one straight movement to avoid the over hits, which cause shading differentials.

So I started off this one with a clear idea of the challenges I wanted to enter. I started with the Sketch Saturday Sketch and new that I wanted to use the Crafty Catz colour theme of Pink, Black and White and the make it colourful dotty technique. Here is the sketch I followed.

Here is my creation.
The base layer and contrast is in black textured card, with those gorgeous Making Memories papers for the pink contrast with the white in the dots.  The image place is from my grand circles again and the punch is one of my new MS purchases.  The pearls from the Hobby House and the flowers hand made.

A close up of the image
I love using the dotty technique and loved colouring her with my copics.

I also followed the sketch through into the inside
