I doodle on scraps of paper whenever I’m sat with a pen and paper, waiting out my time on hold to various companies. But, it has never been something I felt brave enough to add to my cards, just in case I go wrong….! However, doodling is a must for the new challenge over at Sentimental Sundays, so this week, I doodled on a card!!
We were lucky to be sponsored by Scribbles Designs for this challenge – I have to admit I struggled to pick just one stamp! Her designs are so cute and a pleasure to colour 🙂 But, bearing in mind that my doodles are usually stars or paws, I thought this little fox would be the perfect companion to my paw print doodles!
I coloured the image with Pro-Markers as usual, even colouring the background with Cool Grey 1 to help it stand out. I then cut a circle aperture in the front of the card and mounted the image inside the card, allowing the fox to “peek” through. The sentiment is in Minya Nouvelle font, cut straight from black cardstock and mounted directly to the front of the card. And then it was time to doodle….. I kept it simple, drawing a light pencil line to keep my paws in a straight-ish line, and just used my black Pro-Marker (after checking that it wouldn’t bleed too much on a scrap of paper). Have to admit, I’m delighted with the results! I like the fact that the footprints are not all the same size, or even straight and evenly spaced. I don’t think this will be my last attempt at doodling on a card!!
I’d love to see your doodled projects – make sure you head over to Sentimental Sundays with your entries, and take a look at the other DT projects while you’re there too!
