A little bit dotty...

Before you say it... no.. not me... the cards! lol
The background design for these cards has been very popular at demos and in classes.
It's so easy to do... all you need are some ink pads, an aperture and a pencil with a rubber on the end.

You can really add texture and design to your card, without needing lots of layers.
That way you cut down on the postage costs too.

I love this technique and will be using it again with some of my projects in this loop - so if you are at a demo and are not sure about it, please just ask and I'll show you.

Today I am off to gut that bedroom of mine.... I may be gone for a while! lol..... Tomorrow the new challenge goes live on the Cafe blog - so watch this space for that one......

Have a great day and enjoy what is left of your weekend xxx
