Spots and Dots and Dinosaurs!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog



Hello, friends! It is time for a brand new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and today it's all about SPOTS and DOTS! Yup! We want to see you polka! HAHAHAHA!!! Yup. DANCE, people, DANCE! No, but for reals, grab your favorite polka dots, spots, dots, etc. and make something fabulous! The Design Team is featuring Paper Smooches products this week. You don't have to use them to enter, but we would LOVE to see how you rock that cuteness if you have some on hand!

Cheer up, Grumpasaurus!

Ummm.. dinosaurs. I kinda love 'em. For reals, though. Make it a spotted dinosaur and you've just got pure and utter CUTENESS!!!! To achieve that look, I first colored my image with Spectrum Noir pens and then used the colorless blender to remove color to create the spots. I love this technique! It's fun, gives great texture, makes you look all fancy, AND... it's wicked easy. HA!

Cheer Up Grumpasaurus (detail)

If you look closely, you may be able to spot the bit of glimmer on the horns of my little speckled friend, there. Yup. Wink of Stella in action, baby! I do so love that thing.

Now it's YOUR turn! Create something awesome with SPOTS and DOTS and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! You can enter up to FIVE times. Your entries must all be NEW projects and you need to link back to the challenge blog. One lucky participant will win a $50 Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store! WHAT?! Yup. Totes, you guys. Totes.

You can find my complete supply list in the links below.

Have a Happy!
