Doodle Leaves

Monday, June 22, 2015

Hello again! Today is the first day of my summer vacation YAY!  I got up early and got my exercise out of the way.  It's only day one ,so I'm not patting myself on the back quite yet.  After breakfast I decided I had earned a little craft time.
I started this project by stamping these solid leaf images in a fun color combo of WP9 Nautical Navy, Lake House, and Sweet Gelato Dye Ink.  I allowed time for the ink to dry before adding some doodling with a white gel pen. I then colored in the entire background with a T1 Copic Marker.
I added a little texture to the background by applying some rubbing alcohol through a stencil.  I used a paper towel to pick up the alcohol and press it through the stencil. Finally, I stamped the sentiment on vellum using Versamark ink and embossed it in white.

Thanks so much for coming by!
