Alpha Challenge 'O'

The current letter for the Alpha Challenge over at the Craft Barn is 'O' and as usual, I am entering very close to the closing time!  I haven't posted since the last entry for this challenge - I must craft more!  I chose 'oodles' cause I love that word and luckily it was in the dictionary though it has a very small definition!


The background is Tumbled Glass Distress Ink sprinkled with water then dabbed with kitchen roll.  I then inked through a Clarity Stamp Dotty Stencil with Festive Berries Distress Ink and put a dot in the centre of of each red dot with a white Inkessentials Pen.  The dots behind all the letters are done with a Promarker and everything is edged with Black Soot Distress Ink.  I then  added dotty Card Candi to finish the page.  I always use Pinflair Glue Gel to stick Candi rather then foam pads.  So there you have it, oodles of spots and dots! Please pop over and see the other fab entries and brilliant Design Team pages here. Thank you so much for visiting, I really appreciate it.  Have a lovely weekend and I will try and blog again soon!  Take Care, Christine xx

Another great entry. Love your choice of word and wish I had the oodles of money your definition cites. Fantastic idea to repeat all the spots and dots. Oodles of them everywhere. Sometimes we need a break from crafting, so we can appreciate it all the more when we start back at it. I look forward to yuor next installment.
