SDC52: Oodles of Doodles




Kaz is our hostess over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge today and here is what she has challenged us with:

"I can't draw and that's why I love stamping! I'm trying to work on my lettering, but some of the Design Team can do either or both and I am regularly in awe of their talent. I used to be frightened of doing anything freehand, but now I can't stop doodling and if I can do it, anyone can. Whether it's a few dots to highlight or a simple border, right through to drawing an accent on a stamp, I'd like you to do something freehand on your project."

Now, I'm with Kaz in that I can not draw, but I can do some major doodling!  This weeks Clean & Simple Challenge at SCS is to use scallops so this card fits perfectly with that as well.


For my card I used the Bird Tiles by stamping them twice on white cardstock.  I colored the one and cut them out, popping them up with dimensionals on the other strip.  I added my doodling to the border to my card and the dots in between the scallops.

Want a chance to win $30 towards stamps at the Stampotique Originals store?  Join us for this weeks challenge to use doodling on your card- Remember to use STAMPOTIQUE only stamps for your creation.
