Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party


It's pyjama party time over at Waltzingmouse where there are four challenges to enter (I'm entering two).


Challenge No. 1 is Doodle Do - add doodling to your stamping.  I used the technique that Dawn Wolslagle demonstrated in the Stretch Your Stamps online class to stamp my images, then added some doodling with a black pen.

My next entry is for Challenge No. 4, Bedtime Story Sketch.  I just about kept to the sketch, with minor tweaks, which isn't bad for me.  I painted some Distress Paints onto a piece of kraft card, then stamped the sentiment in black Archival ink.  I swiped Tumbled Glass and Broken China inkpads across the base card, and stamped the solid flower image in Tumbled Glass and overstamped with the patterned flower image in Broken China, stamped the centres then cut them out and mounted everything onto the base card.



Flowers: Funky Flowers
Sentiments: Say It Loud

  6. Wow! I can't believe that doodling on the first - I thought those were stamps on top of the WM stamps. But nope! Just stunning! ANd that watercolor background on the Happy Birthday is fab. I think I need to stop by for some lessons here.

  16. I can't even draw a stick figure - so I am in awe of the art that you call "doodling"! It's a lovely card with the spray of softly-colored flowers.
