Stamp n Doodle Thursday!

Welcome to Stamp-n-doodle Thursday! We DT ladies got to work with an image from their wildlife collection called "Call of the Wild". First I have to say, that the wildlife collection is my favorite from Stamp-n-doodle. I love all things "animal" and please Lynne make more of them! I am writing down some ideas to send your way!

Anyhoo, you know me, I love a simple sketch, it keeps the card looking so clean and doesn't detract from the image. I colored the moon with a prismacolor marker, and then used a Copic blender pen to take away a little bit of the color. Yes, the Copic blender pen does work a little bit, and I stress a little bit with the prismacolor markers. Obviously it works perfectly with it's own kind. Since I am on a tight budget being unemployed, I only own 2 Copic markers at the moment. Sniff Sniff. LOL Someday I will have more. I colored the rest of the image with my Stampin Up chalk pastels (Handsome Hunter, Going Gray, Chocolate Chip, and Elegant Eggplant). The card base is SU Crumb Cake, Elegant Eggplant, and then a metallic Silver by DCWV. The ribbon is from Michael's craft store, and so are the dark purple gem accents.

Now, hop on over to the other DT blogs and the SND blog and see what inspiration they have for you to see!

Come back tomorrow and visit me, I am off to schedule a post of a card where I have used some gorgeous gold outline stickers!

Until then...................Blessings, Lisa
