For the Love of Dots from Practicing Creativity Designs is a super fun stamp set. There are so many options with all the dots.
So the inspiration for this card originally came from some red ribbon from Stampin' UP!. That is why I colored the stamp set with red and finished it with black. The problem is after I got all done the ribbon was too "casual" for the elegence of this card. So I had to make some changes and the only thing I had was the black Specialty DP from SU. This card is a little "darker" than I would usually make but none-the-less it was so fun to mix and match the dots from the stamp set.

I used a Kraft card base, inked one of the dots from the set with Versamark and used my heat tool to dry the ink. I then combined two of the other dot stamps from the set to make the border at the bottom of the card. Now In the close up pic you can see I smudged the ink a bit and that is because I didn't have a clear block big enough for the stamp. I mostly had wood mounted stamps until recently and I have not picked up any clear blocks.

Anywho, I colored in the stamp with one of my red Copics. It took me some time to figure out how I wanted to add a sentiment. I used the Celebrate sentiment from the same stamp set. Seriously this set is so cool. If you would like to purchase this set check out my store, Artfuldelight.com.
I think the card looks crooked but I think that is just the way the picture was taken, it's not really crooked. LOL!
