Hold on to your dreams!

Hello Again!! 

Are you ready for some new Stampotique weekly inspiration?!?! 

This one is a super fun piece... I love polka dots, and who doesn't love using text for backgrounds so, I had to jump in n this one to create a super fun card!!  

I loved the idea of combining both of this months challenges, and I love how it came out


I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

To start I stamped out the "Little Hoo-Hoo" stamp on a piece of card stock where I colored him and cut him out. (He was colored using zig cleancolor brush markers.)

*Its ok  if you mess up a tad coloring few people will notice... but I took a close up (below) so you can see below I do mess up, and just go with the flow... 



For my text background I started with a piece of scrapbook paper (it was a pale tan-ish color originally).  I inked it with various Tim Holtz distress inks in yellow and oranges.  I used two different stencils to add the polka dot pattern randomly around the card base. 

once I was satisfied with that I added black around the edges of the card base with a marker.  I also chose to add my sentiment at this time (from the Tim Holtz chit chat stickers), and inked around them in black with a pen. 


Last I just glued everything together. 

I hope you like this as much as I have enjoyed making it! I so love these little monster stamps from Kira Nichols!!! 

(I think I NEED them all!!!)

Don't forget to hop over to our challenge and Join us!!!
