Seeing Spots

A couple of weeks back the Funky Hand Gang were given a new download to play with and it's now available to buy from the Funky Hand shop site
It's called Rainbow Polka Dots and that pretty much sums it up - but not quite!  For just £3.49 you get all of this lot of dots - how fab is that?
Over on the website you'll also find a gallery of cards and other projects made by the team using these wonderful new papers.  Here are a couple of the cards I've made
The first one is Karen's birthday card - hopefully it arrived safely last week!
I made the flowers with 6 layers of paper petals (Nesties large scalloped circles) using 3 from each colourway for each flower  ie 3 from white dots on yellow background, 3 from yellow dots on white background, crmpled  up then fixed together with a brad.
The brads are topped with Stickles
mosaic border made from small (1cm) punched squares
Stems and "leaves" are made with Seam Binding (Creative Treasures)

For the second card I've made the flower in roughly the same way, but using the Nesties Dahlia dies.  The paper frill was made using my scoring board and a lot of cursing....

I've got more spotty dotty cards to share next time, so please visit again soon, I'm a bit tide up with non-crafty stuff atm so I'll have to catch up with blog-hopping once it's all settled down again
Thanks for popping by
