Dilly Beans Challenge: Pop it Up!

Greetings! It's Friday, so that means it's time for another Dilly Beans Challenge! This week, the challenge is to use Pop Dots and layers. And I have a special treat for you...my son Phoenix liked this challenge so much (plus he just loves Dilly Bean's images), so he decided to play along!  Here's what my almost 6 year old made!

Isn't it adorable? He made a birthday card for my sister. She loves snowmen, so he thought this image would be perfect for her. Look at all of those layers! That boy used a lot of pop dots!

Phoenix is very proud of his work...as well he should be! And he is very excited to know that his card is on, not only my, but the Dilly Beans Blog too! And now, on to my project.

How great is this guy??? This image is called "Little Monster Head #475." I colored him with watercolors, and i love how he turned out.

You can see the colors a lot better here. Like Phoenix,  I used a bunch of layers and pop dots (though not quite as many as him!). I also thought it would be cool to use the spotted texture plate to go along with the pop-dot theme.


My sentiment is from Inkandinkado. I thought it was cute for him. I hope you will join us for this week's challenge. Please visit the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT has come up with! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
