Polka Dots! Timeless Tuesday 259

Welcome back friends to another fun and fabulous Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!  I hope you all are having a good week so far, or for some of you, it's the start of the week.  Hopefully, you have or had some good weather to enjoy during the long weekend.

This week, the wonderful Jenny is our hostess and she has brought on some fun using Polka Dots! We all have something with that - whether it be paper, embossing, drawing, punches, you name it, you can make some dots with it. I love polka dots and had an idea in mind.  But then I went in another direction once I picked the stamp set I wanted to use. It always happens like that. :)

For this, I used the set Under the Big Top to  create this scene of the cute bear riding along the banner with the big top behind her.  (Pssttt... you can get this set at 50% off right now during the Gamblers Sale!!)   I decided to color it with another medium that has been neglected - colored pencils.  I whipped out those bad boys for a softer look and blended them in with a blending pencil rather than some Gamsol.  I always enjoy the soft look pencils give and tend to forget that when I always reach for my Copics first.  I started with some Flourishes Classic Cardstock in Ivory for the base while layering it with some Flourishes Classic Black cardstock and some patterned paper from Imaginisce.  For the layout, I used the newest Deconstructed Sketch.  The strips of solid cardstock are from my scrap stash.  The images were stamped in Versafine Onyx, starting with the banner, followed by the bear, and finished with masking the bear and stamping the tent behind her.  I colored in the tent, tutu, and banners with my colored pencils. The sentiment was stamped on a punched pinking circle from MS over the ball and popped up. The card was finished with some twine and the balloons cut out and popped up. 

That does it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment.  Be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the Timeless Tuesday Team!

    4. Beautiful, Deborah! Love the combination of stripes and polka dots in the bg, and the bear looks so cute on his bike! Great idea to round the corners on the image layer, but not the black matting layer. I'm going to have to remember that trick! Hope you have a great weekend!
