52CCT - Stash ....

.....  Good morning!  Can you believe it's the last Saturday in October - only two months to go until Christmas.  Which brings me to our new challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, this week we have a Stash Challenge.  We want you to use Enamel Dots on your projects.  Here's my take:

Stamps: Dimension Stamps - Funky Tree; Waltzingmouse - Tis the Season
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Smoky Slate
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Basic Grey and Doodlebug Sprinkles - various; SU Marker - Basic Black


I decided to let the enamel dots be the star of this card, so I stamped the funky tree and sentiment in black and then went wild with lots of enamel dots.  I drew the frame by hand.  On the inside I cut a mat layer in black.  On the white panel I stamped the tree in grey and added a bold greeting in bright red.  The card is actually brilliant white (not sort of pink as in the photo above) - I'll try to take new photos later in better light!

Check out the blog to see what the rest of the team have made using enamel dots!  You've got until Friday 31st October, midnight (7.00pm EDT) to join in.  Have fun!
