Mr. Scarecrow - Markie's Mom Tech!


I finally managed to sit down and attempt to do a card a la markie's mom (link is to her splitcoast gallery).

For those of you who don't know, Faith Hofrichter (http://stampinwithmarkiesmom.blogspot.com/) also known as *markie's mom* on splitcoaststampers has a special way of putting dots on the borders of all her cards and elements. After months and months of looking at her lovely cards and chatting about them with my stamping friends, I finally decided to make a card using her *dots* style - and I have to tell you, it's really fun! The only thing I would change about this card is that I should have put dots where I put fake stitch marks around the scarecrow.

The stamp set is from Smartworks, they are currently having a 35% off sale on all stamps for the entire month of October.

stamps: Smartworks Scarecrow set
paper: SU burgundy, whisper white, Frances Meyer *Autumn Wheat* designer paper
ink: black stazon, copic markers, SU markers, hot cocoa Sailor paint pen
accessories: paper flowers, half pearls, coluzzle oval, SU key tag punch, dimensional pop-ups
