Sweet Stampin' Design Team Card - Spots And/Or Stripes

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team Challenge project with you. Our fab theme this week is 'Spots And/Or Stripes', and I think you can see what I chose to use......Spots. Lol

Don't forgot to enter our challenge you must include a stamped element on your card/project, follow our theme and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize from Lili Of The Valley.
This is actually the card I made for my mum's birthday, and I loved this stamp when I first spotted it (oops sorry for the pun!), so bought it straight away. It just reminds me of my mum; she tends to nods off to sleep at the drop of a hat especially when we're in mid conversation....I guess my voice lull her off to sleep or something. Lol  I decided to create a frame card and decoupage the central image which I coloured with Copic pens.


Here's What I Did
I used a 7" x 7" white card and matted it with blue spotty paper.  I die cut a large frame from white card using 2 square dies and added it to the card front with funky foam to raise it up.  The sentiment was printed directly onto colouring card and die cut into a square. The image was hand stamped next to the sentiment and just the chair was coloured in with Copic pens.

The image was stamped again onto colouring card and just the sleeping woman was coloured in using Copic pens, and then fussy cut out. The square topper was attached to the inside of the frame along with the woman using foam pads. To complete the card I added pearls to the top and bottom of the frame, and stamped lots of pale blue dots everywhere and added glitter.
