Red, White & Blue Tilda + New Colouring Technique!

Good Morning!
I saw a new colouring technique in a magazine a few days ago and thought I would give it a shot! What you do is colour in your Stamped Images by using dots! I thought this would take rather a long to do but I was actually surprised that it didn't take me too long!
The technique is called 'Pointillism'.
I might try this again in the future, feel free to let me know what you think of this card using it.

This card fits the Challenges at:
MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS - RED, WHITE & BLUE
CUPCAKE CRAFT - 52, SKETCH
ALLSORTS - FREE & EASY
SIMPLY MAGNOLIA - BIRTHDAY CARD
SIMON SAYS STAMP - ANYTHING GOES
(I have used a DP with stars on behind Tilda)





RECIPE:
Magnolia Stamps & Paper
PM Stamp Sentiment
Cuttlebug 'Snow' Embossing Folder
Nesties
Cheesecloth
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Glimmer Mist, Twinklets, Gesso Paint, Ribbon & Dew Drops from Stash

Before I go here is a piccie of Millie & Hollie I took yesterday, Millie had just had her fur cut so she looks rather bare compared to usual lol and you can see how much Hollie has grown since the last piccie, she's in trouble atm as she chewed half a leather sofa seat the other day ... tut tut.


Thanks for Popping By!
Happy Crafting!
