This card is for the StampTV Polka Dots Challenge where we are to use black, white, and/or gray with one other color. My additional color is tattered rose (peach). I started with a piece of Basic Grey polka dotted paper (the back side of "grapevine") and added a bunch of images to create my own patterned paper. The GKD stamps I used for the background were from: If I Had a Flower, Sympathy Label, Hope is Faith, Time, and Vintage Backgrounds. I used memento gray flannel ink to stamp the images and then lightly sponged memento london fog ink over the whole thing. For the focal image and greeting panels, I inked white card stock with Tim Holtz tattered rose distress ink . (I then stamped the floral image from If I Had a Flower randomly all over these panels in tattered rose ink to try to create a subtle background, but the ink soaked right in and you can hardly see it. I don't think it's showing up in the photo at all!) Next, I stamped my focal image and sentiment using memento gray flannel ink. The stamps used were from GKD Hopeful Flowers and Thank You duo. I created a mat for the gray background panel by sponging the tattered rose ink on white card stock. White and black card stock was also used.
