Dots Stampfest on November 18

For our November 18 stampfest, 
Lynette and I made fall tree cards.
we used Judith's dots stamp AAA-04 to add various colors to a little fall scene.
We started out by stamping a tree stamp on a small piece of white cardstock
using either Penny Black's Fantasy tree
or Rubber Stampede Posh Impressions Tree Frame Z283-F.
 Used a circle punch and a post-it, to create our sun mask.

LEFT-Lynette used Versafine black onyx ink on the Tree Frame stamp.
After stamping, she added extra branches by hand with distress black soot marker.
RIGHT-Lynettte colored distress black soot marker directly on Fantasy tree branches.
After masking the sun with our circle
we stamped dots, starting in the upper corners with blue.
Then we used the yellows circling the "sun"
going from lighter in center to darker toward edges.
At the bottom we used blues, lighter to darker.
To create the sun, we sponged yellow using the reverse post-it with the circle opening.
Finally we sponged the edges with various blue distress inks.

LEFT- Used SU's chocolate chip on the Fantasy tree stamp.
RIGHT-Used Versafine black onxy on the Tree Frame stamp.

Inks for the dots and sponging
scattered straw,squeezed lemonade,fossilized amber,
spiced marmalade, broken china, salty ocean, chipped saphire
Stampin' Up!-old olive
My Pentel fine point correction pen was clumpy
when I tried using it to add white highlights to my tree
so we switched to a white Sakura souffle pen.
