A Day with Sherrie! and another sneak peak

My original plan to share something new changed when I found out the SCS challenge was dotty...because I was not planning to show dotty! So there has been a quick change in plans. The card I was going to share with you this afternoon will be the card that I showcase tomorrow instead. So today, you get something dotty!


This card design was so simple. I began by stamping the base image (the solid flat circle) in white pigment ink, followed by the circular image in black ink. The purple mat is a foam mat that helps to get a smoother image for solid stamps,


Here is a close up. You will notice that I offset the circle edge for each circle to make them appear 3-d.

Thank SOOO much for your wonderful comments and all your support. I can hardly wait to show you tomorrow's card. Make sure you check out Sherrie's cards too...it was wonderful having the opportunity to stamp with her.

I'm so glad you shared this with us. I saw your card on SCS today for the challenge and wondered if the white circle was one of your stamps from the new set. Love this card!

The idea of using a simple shape and repeating it is not one that I have been comfortable with, but this sure makes a clean pretty card.
