Ive wanted to have a go at doodling for ages but as one of my mates Lynne is the doodling queen I was always a bit scared to have a go! But this weeks Daring Cardmakers Challege by Jo was the motivational kick in the right direction that I needed.
I have to admit, I tried on a piece of patterned paper and mucked it up completely (basic grey sublime, may it rest forever in its ruined state, sob). I I think I was just scared of ruining such a lovely piece of paper and forgot to relax. So I tried again in front of the telley with a plain piece and dahhdahh! Result! Its messy and not perfect but thats the point and it works! Before I chalked and coloured it for this card I scanned it into the pc to print onto the lovely patterned paper and that worked too, so if you get the fear of ruining scrummy paper thats my top tip! Plus you can muck about in photo editing programs and change the colours and stuff.
Apart from my doodled background I used...
Chalks and watercolour pencils
Big Brad from Gail, Its actually one of the spotty christmas dovecraft ones heated with a heat gun and dunked in some pearlustre Embossing powder then heated again. Hold your brad with pliers though, they get very hot!
