A Bit o’ Doodling!

Hey folks! We’ve got a new challenge that starts today over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog.   The theme for this one is Valentine’s/Love + Ribbon, so put your crafty hat on and play along with us!  My sample for the challenge has a lot of color – big surprise haha!

LoveBirdsTag_AUsing a PITT Artist Pen from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft, I did a bit of fun doodling, too, which is new territory for me.

LoveBirdsTag_CBling a la Studio G.  A great discovery through the doing of this project – how a simple hand-drawn frame can make your project POP – wow!

LoveBirdsTag_DAll my stamping was done with a really cute clear stamp set from Hampton Art – SC0040 “Whoo Loves You” and Clearsnap dye ink in Pinkolicious.  As for the background, I blended Tim Holtz distress inks in Salty Ocean, Spun Sugar, and Picked Raspberry, following that up with a nice spritz of water.

LoveBirdsTag_BBecause there was so much color in this tag, I chose a fresh White Seam Binding from the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop, wrinkling it before tying in order to up the funky factor!  I love how effortless it is to make bows with seam binding.  I’m always fiddling with thicker fibers.

Hope you’ll check out the rest of the team’s inspirations over at the RRR blog, and also that you’ll play along with us on the challenge!

  1. Hey! Just wondering if you have tried to die that white seam binding with distress inks yet. It looks like it would take the color well.

  2. Such a happy card! Love how you complimented the pink with the blue. The heart tree is fun. Your doodling gives it a nice touch. Thanks for sharing.
