Four Doodle Flower Cards (by Debbie)

 
 
A couple of cards from me today.
 
I started by stamping the flowers from Sketchy Doodle Landscapes many times onto a piece of
A4 white card. I love these flowers, they are really funky. I outlined the flowers with a charcoal pencil and smudged slightly, this gives them a bit of depth.
 
 
 
I admit I started colouring the flowers and after two nights of colouring gave up and changed to Alcohol pens which has been much quicker.
 
 
I managed to make four cards from the one piece of stamped and coloured card.
A square, two DL and a note card.
 
 
 Changing the colour of the matting card picks out the different colours.
 



Thanks for visiting

  1. Lovely idea, they look completely different colours with the different backing papers

  4. Wow, what a great stamp to make a background stamp. Love them all but the tall skinny one really has my attention. Lovely flower set.

  5. I agree, the tall skinny one is eye-catching

  6. This is a clever way to make lots of different cards and the colour combination is lovely. The charcoal pencil in the background on the edges gives just the right amount of shadow to lift the flowers a bit. Really pretty Debbie! x

  7. Great cards, thanks for all that inspiration. Gotta say that I like the look of them just in black and white too :)

  8. I love that second DL sample especially. A really super demonstration of judicious matting to change the feel of the coloured panel. I can see that using alcohol pens would be significantly quicker & less arm aching too! This is a really super idea.
