AAA Cards - #75 Photo Inspiration

Here comes AAA Cards first October Challenge. And we decided to go against the grain and ignore Halloween for a change. We came up with this photo inspiration challenge instead.

I love the bright, in your face, colours and the polka dots from the photo and they were my starting point for my card.

I masked off a strip and started by stamping my polka dots - the negative of the ones on the photo - allowing them to overlap in places.

I stamped the sentiment and added two torn strips of green polka dot washi - the same way round as the photo this time. Then I couldn't resist adding one little red enamel dot to echo the single ladybird from the photo.

Stamps: Inkylicious, Elements 1; Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #6
Inks: Memento, dandelion, tangelo, danube blue, lilac posies, grape jelly, tuxedo black
Embellsihments: Washi from my stash; Doodlebug Sprinkles, ladybug asst.

We're all very excited about our photo inspiration challenge and hope you'll enjoy creating something just a little bit different for this time of the year. See how our Guest Designer ..... and the rest of the AAA Cards DT have interpreted it here.

Thanks for visiting today, so pleased you spent some time looking at my blog.  And keep crafting!

  1. Fun and fabulous take on the photo, great masking x

  2. Such a fun and vibrant take on the photo Jane, to be honest I thought it must all be washi tape strips which seemed a super clever idea but even more so that you've stamped those polka dots. Well done. Hope you have a good week and not too cold!!! Sarah x

  3. Love your concentration on the dots! fantastic! This card does indeed put a smile on my face!

  4. Such a great card Jane! I love the fun washi tape strips and polka dots just make the card.

  5. Beautiful card Jane, lot all those dots!

  6. You are rockin' the washi Jane!!! So inspiring. I actually am buying washi because of you! Lovely card, super CAS and great idea.
