Totally Doddled


I just adore the Doodle This set from the spring mini!! I stamped the big flower image on the "Au Chocolat" designer background paper - the other flowers are stamped on chocolate chip with white craft ink - the centers are stamped on b/g paper.
-
I also adhered some "au chocolat" paper to the chipboard pieces - this one came from the basic grey undressed chipboard assortment - I have these for sale on my website if interested.
-
I used brocade blue for the background and stamped it with the doodle flourishes, which were then highlighted with white gel pen. The brocade edges were sponged with choco chip ink and distressed with a thread cutter. Ya know those round pendant things to cut yarn or thread??? They are perfect for distressing edges too!

Don't forget that leaving a comment automatically enters you in a chance to win on of the cards from this week. As an added bonus, I'll also add a couple pages of stamped images from one of the Spring Mini sets that I feature this week!

You are killing me. I have been playing with my Doodle This and Doodle That and I cannot wait for my au chocolat papers. There going to be here Friday but I may die before then. I love all your cards, even the orange one :), but my favorite color is purple and I was sad to read you don't use that much. I subscribed so I won't miss a thing. - Mary R
