CCT spots & dots: 'life friend'

CCT this week wants to see 'spots & dots'.  For mine, I wanted to try something I'd seen but now for the life of me can't remember where, sorry!   Anyway, it's the dotty background in my card which is just green cardstock with punched out circles using the same card stuck randomly, all over it (I just sponged bit of distress ink around all the spots before sticking them down - gives them a bit more definition and makes it 'pop' more - think it's really striking and effective.  There's more dots in the scallop border DP around the main image and the image and sentiments are big 'spot' shapes so that still counts right?! Oh and I've got a big circle on the inside for writing on as the base card is dark grey.

The gorgeous image is a digi one, courtesy of Phindy's Place who are this week's sponser (see CCT for details).  This one is called ' Cookie begger' and is just so cute I didn't think it needed much else so have kept it all very simple and clean although I couldn't resist adding a little wooden gingerbread man in the corner to tie in with the image :)


  • Stamps: digi image 'Cookie begger'- from Phindy's Place, sentiment from a Studio G mini sentiment sets

  • Colouring: Copics as per norm but have dusted off the old prisma colour pencils for a bit of background shading

  • Paper: Mainly just green cardstock with scraps of DP from Basic Grey ' Sugar Rush'

  • Tools: Fiskars Circle cutter, MS border punch, circle punches for sentiment, tracing wheel for the faux stitching holes

  • Others: Fineliner pens for the faux stitching

    Well, that's all from me for now.  Don't forget it's release day over on Whiff of Joy and you've still got till the end of tonight to enter my little WoJ candy to win 'Cool Oakley' - see post below this one.  Will draw winner after midnight (GMT).
