Here are two more cards using Doodle This. My inspiration for these cards came from Maria who challenged her readers to use a minimum of five layers. Being a lover of layers, I went right to work. The first step was to go to a Stamp'n Up colour chart and keyed in cool carribean and white as my colour choices. Wow, there were 91 combinations to choose from. The Certainly Celery and Really Rust interested me, and because I didn't have those colours in stock, I turned to the textured cardstock I had from Hobby Lobby. The textured cardstock colours are of high quality and resemble S.U. colours. Next, I layered my card with several colours of cardstock, and finished off with a patterned paper from Magnolia. The stem for my flower was stamped onto white paper using Cool Carribbean ink and coloured in with matching Tombow markers. Using Magnolia paper, again, I stamped the flower onto a colour that resembled Really Rust, and embossed in gold. After cutting out the flower I curled my flower and attached it to the card front with a brad. To finish off my card I added orange stickles to the smaller flowers on the stem area, and added brads.
For my second card I added several layers of coloured cardstock, then stamped my image onto Cool Carribbean and embossed with gold. Areas were coloured in with a turquoise Tombow marker. Three flowers were embossed in gold and edges were curled up. Three brads were added to finish the card. I can't believe I actually made these cards without any ribbon. How did that happen?
Why don't I think I have enough ribbon?
