Well, I knew for sure I wanted to use the "Seeing Spots" set for this, but how to go on and make it into a card?? Took a bit of thinking, but then I looked up the book, which I wasn't familiar with, and I was up and running. I smooshed wild honey, shaded lilac and cracked pistachio DOX inks onto my mat, spritzed and make my background. Then I stamped the spots, using the same colours, and grey for the larger circles.
Well, I have another stamp with Spot in the title, so I took The Perfect Spot, stamped it on white card (after stamping and masking Puddles, who is pretending he is Spot the Dog today), and coloured with Polychromos pencils. I used an old Fiskars texture plate under the tree, to add texture. Trimmed it down to a square small enough to let enough of my background show, edged it with a black pen and matted it on white. I had some clear acrylic dots which were close enough in colour to look good in the centres of the large circles, so I added those, a pen border on the main layer and then called it done.

Not only is this card absolutely adorable, but it is also a work of art. Both the image panel and the bg are amazing in their own unique ways, and they look incredible when paired together. Your little spot the dog is so stinkin cute sitting under this tree. You blow me away with your backgrounds Sabrina and this one is just exceptional- I love everything about it! ~Karen.

You really took the theme of spots to heart with all the spot references on your card. I LOVE your bg..really cool. The tree and dog look familiar (I believe I have a similar card of yours with those images)..really sweet scene. Love it!
