So this is my second Dotties World Challenge designer card....and I must admit I almost didn't get it done in time! Our house was the sick house this past week. My daughter was sick first and then she gave it to my son and then I got sick! Oh yikes! It was bad. So I was struggling trying to get my card done and submitted by the deadline.
Anywho, I not to worry-I got it done and submitted on time. :o)
This weeks Dottie's world challenge was to make holes and do some distressing. Okay distressing-no problem! The holes....now that was a little bit trickier! lol
I used my bazzill stitches template and my eyelet hole punch to make the little flourish designs. Then I used my marker and connected the holes. Voila! Holes.
Here are the rest of the details for today's card:
Paper is My Mind's Eye-Just Blooms
Image is Holly on the High Street...of course from Dottie's World
Brads are from my LSS and the ribbon is CTMH
I also added a bit of stickles here and there. I used my CM tag punch to make the tag and the sentiment stamp is CTMH.
The large chip board flower is also CTMH.
I sponged a bit of CTMH Bamboo ink here and there for some distressing.
It's hard to see but I also used my mini scallop punch by EKSuccess. The scallops have little holes in them...so super cute.
Just as a side note:
I was actually having some bleeding trouble while trying to color in my image with copics today. Not sure why....maybe it's the weather...it's snowing...yes snowing here today so I was thinking maybe the humidity was effecting my copics....
So I switched from my Wausau bright white cardstock to my Canson Manga cardstock and low and behold it worked awesome! No bleeding at all! And the blending was so flawless!
So if you are having trouble with bleeding and your digital images-try Canson Magna cardstock.
Thanks for looking and have a fab Sunday.
