Doodle Friend

Hi and welcome!  Today I'm thrilled to be Guest Designing at Addicted to CAS.  The code word this fortnight is:



Because doodling is not my thing, I decided to look through my stamp collection for an image that has the doodled look to it.  A Paper Artsy image came to the rescue:




I stamped the image onto a white panel and colored it in quite a one-dimensional fashion with Polychromos pencils, in keeping with the doodle theme.  Once that was done, I die-cut a scalloped frame and adhered it with foam tape.  The "Friend" die-cut was cut from black cardstock and I adhered it using the negative so that it lined up and was evenly spaced.



I even have a You Tube video for you, if you're interested.  It shows a foolish mistake I made and how I covered it up ;)




Thanks so much for visiting!  The Addicted to CAS design team have some gorgeous cards, I'm sure, so head on over and check them out.






Cheers
Karren
