Hello Beautiful!

I'm still playing with these Vintage Roses, this time paired up with some polka dots for The Challenge this time.

I have ALWAYS been drawn to dots, but until now they were in the form of design papers and on a much smaller scale.  Suddenly I find I'm loving bigger dots, and especially the effect I can get with a stencil and several shades of ink.  Here's my card:


supplies: Altenew Vintage Roses, Wplus9 Hand-Written Hello, Simon's Medium Dots Stencil, 4 shades of pale pink to raspberry ink

Here's the graphic for the challenge:


ETA: and I just found the May Power Poppy challenge, which is to fussy-cut around a stamped flower image, so I'm entering that one, too!  I love to fussy-cut, and I adore Power Poppy's wonderful stamps, and don't have a one, so fingers crossed I can win a set!

Oh, my, this is the prettiest thing! I've got a thing for dots and I absolutely love the different shades you stenciled on. A most beautiful stamp set that I have fallen in love with, too. Thank you for entering this in our Power & Spark Cut it Out Challenge at Power Poppy!

Morning Lin! Looking for a card for Mum's 91st birthday I spied this beautiful creation and it just has to be THE one. Its gorgeous! The combination of the geometric dots and natural form roses is inspired! Mum will love it - hope you don't mind if I use your inspiration. xx

Elaine, this is just a guess, since this was done so long ago, but here goes, from palest to darkest: Ranger Sea Shells Shell Pink, Hero Arts Bubble Gum, Pale Tomato, and Raspberry Jam. For the greens, Hero Arts Green Hills and Grass.
