Fun with Polka Dots

I wanted to try out a new polka dot background cling stamp that I bought by Hero Arts.  So, I used it to create some black and white polka dot backgrounds and made this card.

For the black paper with white polka dots, I heat embossed white embossing powder on black card stock. For the white paper with black dots, I simply stamped with black Versafine ink on white card stock. I then took those sheets and die cut some flowers using Spellbinders dies and assembled the layered flowers that you see.  At the center of each flower, I used red brads to keep them together and add some color.  On the right, I used some of the left over polka dot scrap to cut a scalloped edge and added the red edge for additional accent color. On the left,  I used a Paper Smooches die for the dotted border


The supplies I used are below:

White card stock
Black card stock

Red brads (large and small)
