Splitcoast Color Challenge Card
Mary gave us some of my favorite bright colors for this week's Splitcoaststampers color challenge. Unfortunately this was one of those days that everything I envisioned didn't quite come out as planned. I had these polka dot stamps (surprise!) out for one of my efforts. I can't believe in all the time I've had these stamps I've never layered the open circle and the closed circles. Duh! It makes a great effect. Now I'm thinking of all the ways I can make my own tone-on-tone backgrounds with them.
Anyway, for this background I did the Pacific Point for the outlines and the Daffodil Delight for the insides. A little very simple paper piecing and we'll call it done. Now I'd better clean up my work table. It looks like I've had every stamp set in my collection out!
Tomorrow I have a scrapbook layout and I promise there isn't a polka dot stamp in sight!
Thanks for visiting today.
