Woohoo Doodles

Woohoo | by karen @ carefree creations

This week is spring break – no work (working for the school has its perks!!). Although I still have to do my taxes, I decided to get some stamping done this weekend first.

I’m squeaking in a card for CASology: Doodles. I love “keyword” challenges – it leaves everything so open.

I used to doodle like crazy when I was in high school, so of course I own a few doodle style stamp sets. I pulled out one I haven’t used in a long time.

Since I was reminded of my youth, I chose to color the image with colored pencils.

The background was done by sponging a light grey ink onto the background stamp. I was aiming for a fade just around the main image.

I tried to foil the center of the star. My toner pen stopped working, so I went the glue route, but didn’t know what I was doing. I thought I had destroyed the card, but I was able to salvage it and honestly, the grungy look of the foil goes with the messy/imperfect coloring. And my kid approved, so I kept it 🙂

Thanks for taking a peek!

Woohoo!

  1. Great ‘doodled’ card Karen. The faint lines behind your focal point is the perfect touch. Reminds me of doodling in school on looseleaf paper. Thanks for joining us at CASology this week.

  2. Ha! This looks like something someone did in school, thanks to those subtle lines! Great take on our cue card this week! So glad you joined us at CASology, Karen!
