Less Is More Challenge #200 - Take Two

I have a second card for the 'Celebrations' challenge at Less Is More this week. I watched a video by Dawn Woleslagle on coloured stamping on kraft - you can watch it here. She stamped her dots in a wreath shape, I decided to try a cascade effect. It has a bit of a Bokeh feel to it. I am also entering this in the challenge at Addicted to CAS which is 'Dots'.

Stamps - Polka Dot Basics, Movers & Shakers Sentiments (PTI)
Paper - Kraft CS, Black CS
Ink - White Pigment Ink, Various blue and green ink, Memento Tuxedo Black
Other - bitty rhinestones, 3D foam

200th Challenge at Less Is More!

Congratulations to the fabulous team at Less Is More for posting their 200th challenge this week! I love their Clean and Simple challenge blog and I have been trying to play along with them more consistently the past couple of months. The theme for this week's challenge is 'Celebrations'. I am also entering this card into the challenge at Addicted to CAS which is 'Dots'.

I needed a masculine birthday card, so I went with a clean, black graphic card. I had a difficult time photographing this card, either the black would fade to grey or the green would look white. Ended up with have a lot of glare in the top left corner too.

The dots were stamped with versa mark on black CS and heat embossed with clear EP. The sentiment was heat embossed with black EP on green CS

Stamps - Polka Dot Basics (PTI), Shining Star (CTMH)
Paper - Black CS (SU), Pear CS (CTMH)
Ink - Versa Mark, Clear EP, Black EP
Other - 3D foam
