I had to make a sample card for the color challenge for the yahoo group I co-own. I don't know why but I decided on pink, black and white. I could not come up with a card right away so I posted the colors and then mulled over them for a few days. Here is what I came up with:
I decided on using a soft pink and as I had no black and white background paper I stamped my own using Inkadinkado's Garden Flowers clear stamps by Brenda Walter (I love her stuff). Then I stamped the stylized rose from Inkadinkado's Floral Expressions clear stamps and did a stylized coloring with my copics. The sentiment is from Fiskar's All Years Greetings. Embellished with black sticky pearls and pink ribbon.
Well I wanted to join in on this week's Teapot Tuesday's 101 party. In honor of it being the 101 party the story is all about Duke the Dalmatian who was born without his spots -most dalmatians are born all white (get it - 101 tea parties, 101 Dalmatians . . . ) So Duke needs spots in order to take a job as dalmatian for Fire Engine 9 in Seattle and the tea party gang are suppose to bring as many dot - errrrrrr - spots as they can for Duke. I decided I would take the above card and tweak it for the party. Then I discovered it would also be a perfect card for this weeks challenge over at Stamping B's.
I love red with black and white - especially with polka dots - so I changed out the CS to red. I had no black and white polka dot background paper so I downloaded some polka dot images from the web (actually sample "colors" for some house hold items) and made my own paper. The rose is also colored with copics and I did polka dotted ribbon and bow to just add more dots.
