Doodle Do!

My turn to be Daring this week... I thought that doodling would be a good idea. Well it was until tried to make anything, I think that I found this the most challenging so far. After a few attempts, I finally made these that I am quite happy with :)


I used a dark brown card blank, I printed a greeting using the outline option on word onto Pink Basic Grey paper. This gave a guide and I then went over it with black pen and coloured it in. Layered it onto Blonde Moments Pink paper and white copier paper. I doodled a flower and some flourishes, coloured in bits with a white gel pen and used a glue pen and embossing powder to make other bits blingy. Flowers are Angel Kisses and Poundland! Spotty ribbon is from Little Silver Hat A couple of brads, and eyelet, staples and hand stitching and inking to finish.....




Started with a white card blank, covered the bottom half in brown paper, the top in Blonde Moments paper and covered the join with spotty ribbon. Doodled some trees, stars, hearts and a flourish, colored with gel pens, cut out and inked edges. Added detail with a pricking tool and mounted onto white card. Adhered it to the card with foam pads...

I really hope that you have fun with the dare this week, the girls have made some fantastic cards to use as inspiration, they are all on the Daring Cardmakers blog Don't forget to let us know what you create, can't wait to see them :)

Wonderful cards as always. I'm a bit concerned that the dcm member that chooses the dare has problems with it. I hope I'm not too mean to myself when I announce my dare next Friday.
