Ready to Doodle do?

hmmm now do I watch far to much CBeebies or is that This Weeks Dare ? Or Maybe both ;) I cant help the first one, that Chris (from doodle do) is just sooo yummy. Anyway onto this weeks dare

Jo set us this weeks dare and it was to get doodling! Our challenge was to make a card which incorporated some sort of doodle. Now that was a challenge for someone as artistically challenged as me, hell I cant even draw a straight line! But i perserved and thought I might as well make a couple of christmas cards whilst I was at it. So here they are .. (and if i ever see another holly leaf it will be too soon

Card One - Holly and Joy

I covered letters from the MakingMemories Poolside alphabet in a dark green Bazzil card and cut round them, then highlighted the edges with a black pen line (excuse the dodgy "o" i cut my finger on the knife!!) I then attached 3d Foam pads and double mounted it onto Blonde moments paper and green bazzill card, each which had been inked around the edges. I then drew holly leaves and berries in black pen and coloured them in with Gel pens.

Card Two - Merry Christmas


This was a quick and simple one, I copied the lettering from a doodle font onto white cardstock with black pen and drew stitching around the edge. I then attached it with 3d Pads on a piece of Blonde Moments paper and then onto green bazzil. Which was then attached to a white DL card blank. The whole thing was topped off with a sizzix holly die cut.
