HHC31 Can Ya Doodle?!



Our wonderful guest Diva Karen chose the theme for this week's challenge at the High Hopes Blog! She wants us to doodle on our projects/cards this week! How fun!
Now don't be intimidated, a doodle can be as easy as adding a few dots around your image panel with a black felt pen, or going all out with swirlies and floral patterns, the sky's the limit!
Adding a link to your project onto the HH blog will give you a chance to win two free HH stamps next weekend! What are you waiting for, get doodling!!!
I stamped Sweet Dreams, from the latest release, onto Manga Drawing Pad paper using Tsukeneko Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it in with Copics, colors pictured below.
The flowers in the four corners are actually punched out of the Basic Grey "Bittersweet" Peanut Butter paper, allowing the white of the layer below it to show through. I doodled around on the Basic Grey with a black ink felt pen, and then traced beside those doodles with my Signo white gel pen.
I used my CB and a Nestabilities Labels 1 die for the main image panel and sponged Distress Vintage Photo ink around the edges while it was still in the die.
I also used this card for the IC on Splitcoast Stampers today. Lots of fun! You can click on the card for a closeup if you need it. Thanks for looking!


The browns on the ant were done with the E70 group and the browns on the ground were done with the E50's and also E44 and Y26. Other than that, I think its pretty easy to guess what went where :

  13. Hi Crissy,
    Just love this card--especially the ant's little hands, cheek and antenna. He looks so contented laying there!
    Your colouring is lovely as well as the background done with distressing ink. Thanks for the tip about leaving the cut out in the die and then distressing it--I'm kinda new to the CB and haven't learned all the neat tricks yet.
    Hope you have a great week!

  20. Great doodling! Love the contrasting white! Of course your ant is just colored wonderfully! Adorable card!

  21. What awesome doodling...of course, I wouldn't expect anything less from you!! I love how you created a mat around the image with the shading while in the die. I may need to try that with this die since the next larger size up leaves too much of a border for me.
