Doodlelicious


Morning Custard Lovers.

Fancy a Cupcake? Mmmm, me too! (When do I ever refuse cake?!) This week over at Cupcake, our lovely Donna has chosen Let's get Krafty. This gave me a good excuse to get my pencils out. I've been playing with my Marers quite a lot recently, but I do love the texture pencils give on Kraft.


I had a crazy idea that this would be quite a quick card to make, but the doodling took almost as long as colouring the image! I am so naive sometimes! :)

I hope you'll get a chance to join us this week. We have prizes from Crafts U Love and Crafty Emma's Store up for grabs. Pop over to Cupcake for all the details. And don't forget to take a look at the brilliant creations from The Cupcakes...

Recipe

Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Image: Hero Arts

Hi Faye, well isn't that a brilliant card! Love the image and your colouring is perfect. I have tried doodling before, but I'm no good at it - don't like the way it turns out (looks like my Emily did it!) yours is fantastic. I'm really going to have to give in soon and get some Kraft, maybe it'll go on my (very long!) Christmas list.
