New Challenge "Oodles of Doodles"


Kaz is our hostess over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge today and here is what she has challenged us with:

"I can't draw and that's why I love stamping! I'm trying to work on my lettering, but some of the Design Team can do either or both and I am regularly in awe of their talent. I used to be frightened of doing anything freehand, but now I can't stop doodling and if I can do it, anyone can. Whether it's a few dots to highlight or a simple border, right through to drawing an accent on a stamp, I'd like you to do something freehand on your project."

So, I pulled out my fun "BLESSED SKELLIE" image from Roc Nicholas and made this tag. :)  I got to use my new stencils, paints and doodle!  (love that!) 

Blessed Skellie reminds me of New Mexico where I try to visit my sister as often as I can.  The art there is so fun and ALOT of "day of the dead" stuff which is what this reminds me of.  Skellie is colored with copics and paper pieced and doodled on with a  white uniball pen.  The arrow types are punched out old BG cs and sewn on.  I think I may have to give this to my niece...she loves skeletons!
Head on over to the blog and look at the creations by the dt...     to win the challenge of a $30.00 gift to the store please use Stampotique only images.  TFL!

Totally fun tag! There's something so smile-inducingly fun about a skull character carrying a big red heart and sporting a flower on its head.

Thank you ever so sweetly for your celebratory comment on my post about Chronically Vintage's 3rd birthday, I really appreciate it. :)


Wishing you a beautiful Thursday,
♥ Jessica
