Timeless Tuesday #239 - Pointilism

This week’s Timeless Tuesday challenge brought to us by Hostess Allison is to…

Create a card or project using DOTS to color your back ground and/or part of your image.  This technique is known as POINTILLISM  (FTTC239).

I love this technique and used it to color my image as well as my background.
My images are from Flourishes' Love Notes. I stamped the guitar with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored in with my Copics using all dots. I left it a little open and not so blended to match the theme of the card. 
I added Light Blue Chevron Twill ribbon and an embossed button with blue twine to add some color.  Not many other frills, as I wanted this to be more on the masculine side.
Read all about our challenge and find a tutorial on pointillism HERE. Take a moment a leave a comment on the Friends of Flourishes Team member blogs and our guest designer for September…
