Hello fellow Crafters,

And again it is Wednesday. Doesn't time fly !

Today's Challenge on the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog was set by the lovely Samantha.
She chose 'pink, turquoise and polkadots' as a theme and this is what she said :

"I'm so excited to be sharing with you my love for polka dots. Almost every thing I own is dotty!

Polka dots are great fun as a main feature or as a delicate accent to artwork. My other love is my favourite colour combination, pink and turquoise. So for this weeks challenge I'm inviting you to have fun with my favourite things: Pink, Turquoise and Polka Dots! I can't wait to see your creations, so get your rubber out and have lots of fun creating :)"

Why not have a go as well. You could win $30,-- of those wonderful stamps at the end of the month. The only rules are : only one entry per person and no digi stamps.

This is my take on her challenge :

Recently I have been trying out my Gelli Plate which I bought in February when we were in the US on holiday. The background was one of the prints and I glued it down in my journal cutting off the excess around the edges. I added polkadots in turquoise, pink and white and did some background stamping. I used some India Ink to splatter. Next I drew the lines along the edges. 
I then thought I would add more polka dots so I die cut some big ones and coloured them with Spun Sugar DI, edging them with Picked Raspberry DI. I glued them down and used the same background stamp to give them some more interest. 
Next I stamped 'Underwhere' on white card and coloured him with Copics, clear embossed him and cut him out. I stood him on some washi tape on the page. I then thought it would be nice to use some more of this washi tape, so I stuck some on some paper and die cut some more of those circles. So now I have polka dotted-polkadots.... I stamped the sentiment on another bit of gelli print and adhered it on top of some more of the same washi tape.  

I used the following Stampotique stamps :
