Dotty Muse


Hi there!  I finally got into the Craft Cave for a few hours today and have managed to play along with a couple of challenges.  I definitely wanted to join in with the fun over at Muse because the lovely Bobby of Bits & Pieces is the Guest Muse this month!  I love the ombre, dotty swirls that Bobby created and they're even more cool because they're made with embossing paste!  Bobby challenged us to try using some EP and I tried, I really did but I just wasn't happy with the final result so I scrapped it and went back to the drawing board.  I pulled out Papertrey Ink's Dot Spot stamps and embossed the largest one with clear embossing powder.  Then I took some Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and went to town blending it over the circles. The sentiment is from Avery Elle and I added a few gems for some shine.  That's it for me now - off to cook some dinner!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Circle pattern from Dot Spot) Papertrey Ink, (Sentiment from Cake & Candles) Avery Elle
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink) Ranger
Embossing Poiwder:  (Clear) Ranger
Gems:  Recollections

I'm sorry your embossing paste didn't work out for you but you did come up with an incredible card. That Dot Spot makes a beautiful medallion and your background really shows it off.

This is a great take on Bobby's Muse, Jen - so glad you joined us!

Your sponged background is a total wow -- sometimes embossing paste just isn't the way to go, I guess! ;)

Love that dot spot set. Every time I see it used. Really fun background you created, and I love your sentiment flag too.
