STAMPlorations Bi-weekly Sketch challenge #18

Hi friends! Its time for a new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations, Bi-weekly Sketch Challenge #18. This challenge ends on August 29th and the winners would be announced on August 31st. We have a very talented Guest Designer Carol joining us for this challenge. She makes awesome cards and has an amazing style of writing. She is sweet to read ur entire post and make the sweetest comments ever :) Welcome Carol! You can check out more of her creations at her blog Just Me :c
Let's get to the sketch and my card... Actually two cards, I wanted to try the same concept in different colors so I ended up making two cards :)


To make this card, I stamped the dots from Vignette - Retro Mod shapes beginning from center and moving outwards to the edges. I then created several layers in different ink by stamping dots by overlapping  them. To create this pattern I was inspired by Donna Mikasa's card for CASE Study Anniversary Week #2. Next to match up the sketch, I heat embossed the sentiment from Subway Art sentiment builder - Dare on vellum. Also heat embossed a few more dots. Next, I added the twine and vellum and sequins to finish my card. I am entering this card to a few challenges - Simply Create too #68 - MonochromaticCAS-ual Friday's #134 - Tic-tac-toe (Dots, white and sequins)
CASE Study 4th Anniversary
