A Stencil and Stamps



Another card today for the DTGD challenges on Splitcoaststampers. It was made for these challenges:
DTGD14ChristineCreations, DTGD14bfinlay, DTGD14cathymac, DTGDvdutchr. I did this card using a new technique for me, pointillism. The tutorial can be found here on SCS.  It was my first time to try it and I LOVE it.

Recipe:
Stamps-Flourishes/Butterflies & Blossoms, Inspired by Stamping/Big Wishes II
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaMagic chalk ink/Spring Pansy
Accessories-Dylusions Stencil/Chequered Dots, scissors for fussy cutting image

Looks like you have mastered the pointillism on your first attempt! Stunning card! I watched the video on Splitcoast and thought it was cool looking. Was it it time consuming?

I just recently saw this technique for coloring but haven't tried it yet. Your card looks amazing with all the great color, and those purple dots partially creating the background add some real pizzazz to this pretty birthday card! Thanks for the inspiration!

Another beauty. Was intrigued to see you did the pointillism. I tried that with copics after seeing a Colleen Schaan tutorial. It is not easy, and you've captured it wonderfully. Those background dots are a wonderful backdrop to your pretty flowers. Wondered if you had done some of the gesso stenciling. I'll check out the tutorial link too. TFS & Hugs. Great cards!

Okay you, I love how you are branching out with the colors. I like pointillism too and your example is beautiful!! A vibrant and uplifting fun BD card!!!

I never would have thought to pair big polka dots with a bouquet of flowers, but I LIKE it a lot! It takes any stuffiness/seriousness out of the flowers and injects a bit of fun. Great job, Benzi!
