Going Dotty

The challenge this week at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday is to use a technique called POINTILLISM!!  Be sure to check out the tutorial by the very talented Allison Cope on this one.  In short, it is to colour the image or background using DOTS of colour!  I chose this image from Flourishes What A Catch stamp set, stamped it with Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, die cut it with a Spellbinders Labels Four and layered it onto dull blue cardstock.  For the background, I used paper from the Karen Foster collection, layered onto dark brown cardstock.  I added brown May Arts mesh with dark brown grosgrain ribbon and a knot.  I die cut dark brown cardstock with Spellbinders Lattice Pendant, added that to the background and then added the image piece with foam tape.
Thanks, Ally, for a great challenge - it was interesting and fun!

Copic Colours used were: YG00, YG03, YG63, YG67, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG45, BG49, B0000, B000, YR21, YR23, E21, E23, E25, E41, E44, E47, R22, R24.

Thanks so much for coming to visit!
