Seize The Birthday - Dashes and Doodling


Welcome to Seize The Birthday, where our theme for this challenge is Dashes and Doodling.


This is another card for my great-nephew's stash of birthday cards for his classmates.  The little monster is from a PaperArtsy set by Elina Zinski.  I watercoloured him with Distress Inks and fussy cut him, added a pre-printed sentiment circle that already has dashes on it, then adhered it to a base that I had in my stash.  I stamped the brushstroke then added some doodling above it to make it look like the monster is jumping or bouncing.  Some glossy accents on the eyes and a die-cut 5 complete the card.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team, and join in with us.  If you don't want to use dashes or doodling, you can still play along with any birthday project.

  6. I cannot imagine a kid, or kid at heart, not just be overjoyed to receive this card, Shirley!!! What a talent you have... I thought for one moment that he'd gotten his foot stuck in something - probably cake frosting? xx
