Pointillism Tree



I  couldn't find a PTI stamp to use for the Pointillism challenge during SAF.  I looked at Floral Foliage, but it has tiny flowers.  After watching the PTI MIM Sentiment Strip Grounding video I pulled out the matching die & decided to use it for both techniques.  
Gotta say--this was fun! I only used the dots (single stamp) from Twig Wreath which made it pretty quick & really easy. The inks are PTI Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, Fine Linen & Classic Kraft. The sentiment, also from Twig Wreath, is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. Love having the PTI cardstock sampler so I could match the inks perfectly. The die cut was sprayed with Perfect Pearls mist I made in an empty Shimmer Spritz bottle--works great & so inexpensive to make your own.  This card is already in the mail to give a blogging friend a virtual hug--hope she likes it.  I'm also entering the Share Joy challenge with this CAS card, Stamping Sensations & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  12. This technique makes fabulous tree foliage. Good idea using a stamp with dots to do this. My eyes would be crossed if I had to make each dot separate!
