Pile It On - Dots

This week the theme for the Pile It On challenge is "Dots".  You probably can't tell that the paper that I wrote my sentiment on is dotted because there's so little of it, but it is there.  Also in the image there are dots on the wires on which the birds sit.  I've also added some red pearl dots around the sentiment and a couple button embellishments to make it a little more dotty.  If you count my dotty brain...

This image from Stitchy Bear is digital and it's printed on patterned paper.  I like the look of stamps on patterned paper and since there's no coloring to do on this one I decided that a patterned paper background would make it more interesting.   Some of you may not realize that you can do that with your digital images or that your paper doesn't have to 8-1/2 x 11.  It just has to be a bit larger than your image.   This was done with just a scrap of paper.  All you have to do is lightly tape the scrap where the image is going to print.  This is the same thing you would do if you wanted to paper piece with a digital image.  It's easy peasy, give it a try, you'll like it.

Here's the deets:
