Doodle Card for the IC!

Stamps: Kind Thoughts, Season of Friendship, Sweet and Sassy, Riveting. Ink: SU Black Classic, White Craft. Palette Canvas, VersaMagic Thatched Straw and Sea Breeze. Accessories: Zing White EP, Signo White gel pen, Black Copic.
Hello All! I'm hosting the Inspiration Challenge over on SCS this weekend (Keyword IC211)! I hope you pop over there and join in, I really love the website I found recently when looking for some fun inspiration for you!! The inspiration website is "FabulousStationary"!! It is filled with simple, clean and fun inspiration -- perfect for this busy time of the year!! I chose this piece as my inspiration, very CAS!! Loves it! For my card, I stamped the branch images in SU Black Classic and then I started stamping the solid circles. I worked a little on enhancing the colors of the circles because the colors sort of got absorbed by the card stock. So I first stamped them using water-based dye inks, then brushed them over with Judikins Mica Gloss (now they have a soft shimmer!). Then I stamped them again in chalk inks. When I was finally satisfied, I doodled around the larger circles with a black Copic to highlight them. Easy and fun! If you don't usually participate in the IC over on SCS, I encourage you to give it a try!! These inspiration pieces are fun, bold and basic!! Perfect for a busy holiday season!! Hope you give it a try too!! TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
