Masked Dauber Dotting Technique. Stampin' Up! Australian Demonstrator.
Hello, and thanks for visiting my blog today. I trust you are enjoying the weekend. We have had some rain here in Sydney today, and I have spent the day in my Happy Place, crafting my little cotton socks off!
I have created a project for you with a technique called Dauber Dotting.
Rather than blending from one shade into the next as you normally would do with a sponge dauber, this technique celebrates the dottiness!
Start by creating the inside of a circle mask using the largest stitched framelits circle. I use Express It Transparent Masking Film, but you could use scrap paper and tape it down with some washi tape. Just be sure to rub your washi onto your clothing first to remove some of the tack, or it still may tear the Shimmery White card stock when you try to remove it.
Start with Daffodil Delight. Blend as usual, but add extra strength dots on top by pounding slightly when you finish blending. Next add the Peekaboo Peach and blend as usual, then add pounded dots to the top. Melon Mambo is next. Be sure to start blending off the circle as this is a stronger colour. I did less blending here and more pounding. With Wisteria Wonder blend in from the edge and then pound on top.
Remove the mask and allow to dry. You can speed up the process with your heat gun.
Assemble your card onto a Basic Black card base, and add a Shimmery White layer to the inside, so a message can be written to the recipient of your card.
I stamped the smaller flower from Birthday Blooms #140658 onto the inside layer as well as onto the art piece sponged circle. I do love the inside of my cards to look as lovely as the outside!

I adhered a strip of washi tape from the Pop Of Pink suite down the side edge. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Blooms Stamp set onto Shimmery White card stock and cut out using the oval framelits. I popped this up on dimensionals and the card was done!
I hope you give this a try. Have a good weekend.
Thanks so much for shopping with me! Vicki x 💝
