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!
