Polka Dot Cutie

I found this new challenge group today, Tag You're it!, and well....you know me and tags, so I gave it a try. The challenge is polka dots......now...believe it or not...there are many, many layers of dots on this tag, and I don't quite understand why they are just disappearing into thin air, maybe someone can explain this to me. A couple of hours ago, after applying the dots for the 4th time.....I thought I finally had it down...but nope....they are just gone again! So everyone, please look real close and you will see dots! I did the Rainbow Brilliance technique from the current issue of the TJNL on this tag....however I first painted the tag with the Ranger dabbers. I can only guess there must be some kind of chemical reaction going on. First I stamped the dots in Versamark-and when that did nothing, I went on to use 3 different inks-not only colors, but brands! By morning, they probably will be all gone, LOL! The stamp is from Artistic Outpost, and the saying is Hero Arts. I look forward to the next tag challenge, hopefully with better results.

I love it! What are the three circle shaped things on the right hand side? They look like screw heads, but my eyes aren't the best either! LOL Literally blind in one eye and can't see out of the other! I found the same blog a few days ago-and it's a good thing you found it cause I'd forgotten to make my polka dot tag! I just love those!

Hugs!

LOL! @ your disappearing dots!! :o) I can see them, I promise! And I LOVE your tag! The dots are really subtle and arty! I wonder why you had this happen though? Sometimes I get it with my white Sakura pen - I doodle something, then when I look at it 10 minutes later, it's gone!! LOL!!

Thank You so much for playing along - you have some wonderful art on your blog, and I'm so glad you found us! Look forward to seeing you again! ;o) x

LOL at your dots fading - how strange! In any case, it's a STUNNING tag! I adore the little girl!

Plus your company has now been added to the list of stamp companies worldwide that we are currently working on - I didn't know about you before so I am so happy to have found you (I know, where have I been?!?)
