Sweet Stamps- Polka Dots

We are creating with Polka Dots this week at Sweet Stamps .

   Well, water coloring seems to be pretty hot right now, so I cracked open the new Technique Junkies Newsletter, and tried the Tie Die Circles technique.  I used Shades Die ink Spots Dandelion, Peapod and Paprika for my 'Dots'. I stamped the Crown Butterfly in Black Tuxedo ink. Next, I used Distress Markers Wild Honey, Tea Die, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Dried Marigold to color and stamp the butterfly and the crown.  I added some AF French Writing on the BG and some machine stitching too.

Here are the Sweet STamps Products I used on my card:
