I'm so glad that Doodle This has made it to the big catty. It was my absolute favorite of all the doodle sets in the Spring Mini. I stamped the flower image onto Shimmery White with Basic Black ink and decided to try something new for me--I watercolored with reinkers and my aquapainter. I usually use my Watercolor Wonder crayons when I watercolor but wanted to try something new. Wow, I was not expecting the color to be so intense and I'll definitely have to try this again. Anyway, the flower is colored in with Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, and Taken with Teal. I sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie as well and set it aside to dry. Once it was dry, I sprinkled on a little Dazzling Diamonds after hitting a few areas with my Quickie Glue Pen. I matted this onto Pumpkin Pie and stamped the words from Amazing to Zany with Taken with Teal. The card base is Taken with Teal and the swirlie thing from Doodle This is stamped on it with Taken with Teal ink. I pierced and faux stitched the Chocolate Chip strip and attached it to the card base. I scored the card 1/2 inch from the top and then punched three holes in it with my Cropodile and then attached three silver eyelets. I stapled on a few snippets of chocolate, tangerine, and white grosgrain and then adhered the focal image and tah-dah! I love these colors together and can see myself playing with them some more. Then again, I'm not sure how much stamping I'm doing tomorrow because it's the 4th of July and my SU order arrives this Thursday so I'll have new In Colors to play with :-)
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful 4th of July to all of you!
