Doodled Cards

A Cut at Home Design Team Project

I've been bitten again, yes you understand what that means don't you.  I've been bitten by the doodling craze and I'm loving it.  It's such a relaxing form of creativity.  I watched a fellow YouTuber this week incorporate her Zentangles into flowers she had stamped.  I didn't have any flowers that would work but I did have a Spellbinders in'spire Cage die that I had so been wanting to play with.  I figured it would be just about the right size to try this out.  Now mind you my doodles are by no means Zentangle quality, check back later and I might tell you I've grown to a Zentangle presentable doodle.  Right now mine are just fun.

I used the die to cut an aperture in the front of my card base. I set the die cut piece to the side and embossed the front of the card with the Sizzix Retro Circles embossing folder.  I took the die cut piece and carefully cut away the cage and bird from the bottom of the skirt. I then took some Micron fine tip pens and traced the dress onto white cardstock (I'm using American Crafts white 90#).  Once traced I added partition lines to divide the dress into sections which I then filled with my doodles.  How fun, no matter if you're an experienced Zentangler or a beginner doodler your dress will look fabulous once you're done!

I share several styles in the video below to give you inspiration on making your own doodled cards. If you have larger stamps with large areas you could use them, or any die that has an area large enough to create several doodled areas. So come join me and I'll share how I created my cards, let you look over my shoulder as I doodle a dress and share a few things I gleaned online this week using my Wink of Stella Glitter pen.

These are really pretty cards.

It's a small world Patti...I'm a fairly new Facebook user, and every now and then your face would show up on my face book page asking me If I knew you and did I want to send a friend request...and I would think who is this person?
and then when I just commented on Deloris's blog, I saw your name and then it hit me the group that Deloris and Jenny had, Have? I was a member in it with you many years ago..

Anyway, enough rambling from me, Just wanted to tell you make very beautiful projects...thank you for sharing.
