Seeing Spots?

Here is a delightful impish image from StretchNBubbles - it's from the range of Imps, called "Nurse Imp". 

With a recent visit to the optometrist, I thought it would be fun to use spots (yes , I see spots!). Not going too crazy with colour, I thought black, white and red would be a nice medical mix...

Ingredients: Cardstock - Kaszazz; Papers - Portacraft, magazine freebie; Markers - Promarker Aqua; Aquash water pen; Stardust Pen - Sakura; Ribbon - DottyCraft...

I coloured the image with markers and a water brush, leaving the uniform untouched, and adding red stardust pen to accent. I trimmed her, the mounted her on layers of dots, black, and gold embossed red papers.  I created square layers to  add underneath, and tied ribbon to create corner accents.

This card is entered in the challenges at:
Your Next Stamp - #45 Black and White and One Colour (27/6)

Don't forget to stop by the SNB Shop to see the new images just released!  Thanks for peepin'!

this is such a cute card Pauline, love the spotted background and the main image.

I can't imagine how cold it must be in Melbourne as its so cold in Sydney. The weird thing is I am enjoying the weather.

Love the bold look on your card and the little imp is a cutie. I'm sorry that you see spots I can image that would be quite annoying sometimes!

Many thanks for joining in with our Bright Colours challenge over at Happileigh Scrappin' Challenges
