Doodling With Stamps and PTI

This weeks Make-It-Monday Challenge was a bit out of my comfort zone. Ashley had a great video (found HERE) about doodling with your stamps.

I started by doing the water coloring technique using Happiness In Bloom, on watercolor paper. Once it was dry it was time to doodle! To be honest, my heart was pounding before I made that first doodle with my ink pen. I kept pressing forward with it and discovered that the more I doodled, the freer and easier it became for me.
In the end, I'm happy with the results. I even think I'd like to try it again! The "Mother" sentiment is an oldie from a QVC set my mother had bought and never used. I even made a little doodle under the sentiment. That was hard work. ;0)
If you've made a card for PTI's MIM challenge, please leave me a comment so I can be sure to stop by and see yours.
I'm also entering this into the following challenges:

  17. What a sweet and beautiful card with your watercoloring and doodling, BIrgit! It was quite nerve-racking taking pen to paper, wasn't it?
