The monthly challenge at House of Cards is enamel dots. I love these things but the hard part is the scatter thing. I can sweat over the correct placement of 3 or 5 or 7 enamel dots, pearls, gems, etc.
I needed to make a good bye card for a co worker. This card is from the office.
I had made the background on which the flower is stamped. I made it awhile ago but I believe it was made with distress inks on watercolor paper. I like to make some of these up and have them waiting to be used. I hate the wait till it is dry. I also save all my scraps of background papers I have made. I know someday I will need them.
As you can see there are black enamel dots on the card. I also wanted to bring in the colors of the background paper but of course, you never have enamel dots in the correct colors. I have started using the old fashioned hole punch for circles. Place the dots on my card with a glue dot and then I add glossy accents on top. It is a "kinda faux" enamel dot that exactly matches. The flower was colored with distress paints.
Hope you liked my enamel dot card. Thanks for stopping by.
