Thanks for everything

Hi there!

It feels like ages ago that I played along in a challenge. No better way to get started again with the inspiration of some of my favorite challenges :)

My card was made using the negative of a Silhouette cut from a previous card as a stencil. Sponged with Versafine black ink. Dots and sentiment is from a Casual Friday stamp set called wallflower.
After stamping the dots, I added a touch of glossy accents to every dot. The gloss added almost give the look of an enamel dot, don't you think ? Something to remember for the future when I don't have the right size or color enamel dot to add!

Hi Hannelie ~ Love the elegant simplicity of your lovely card. The addition of Glossy Accents to the colorful dots was a perfect way to set them off (I thought they WERE enamel dots!!). Thanks for sharing!!

Beautiful card! Love the dot idea. I think I'll have to try that sometime.

Oh my gosh Hannelie, what a gorgeous card, great idea to use the negative of this beautiful flourish as a stencil but, the idea of stamping the dots and adding Glossy Accents to make enamel dots is inspired. Now I know what to do to create my own.
Thank you so much for sharing.
Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.
