CASology: Dot

Hello Everyone,
After making my card for the CASology: Dot challenge, I am seeing spots dots! Goodness, when this card was percolating in my head, I thought, "That is going to be quick and easy." Wrong! Why is it that the simplest designs are the hardest to execute?

My cute little smiley face is from the Neat and Tangled stamp set "Kindness Matters". I created a mask to help me stamp the smileys evenly and then one to sponge around them to create the pink "dots". Three pices of cardstock later,,, I finally got it, only to smudge the sentiment - AARGH! The sentiment is from AveryElle "Handwritten Notes". I managed to cleanit up enough to photograph, but I am not sure that it is one I can send to someone :( Anyway, I created my pink smileys by stamping in Versamark, clear embossing and sponging with Hero Arts Neon Pink ink. I really like the bright clean graphic look of this card. I am finished crafting for the day, time to go for a nice brisk walk!

Happy Stamping,
