The January challenge theme at the One Sweet Challenge blog is Black and White (and grey is also okay) and I thought I'd incorporate this into my creation this week. :)
I've been feeling quite arty lately and the black and white theme made me think of the contrast between black ink and white paper so I decided to do a doodled card.
I used Helena Reis' adorable Joy Is... A Basket Full Of Cats digi stamp and shaded it simply using a HB pencil. I then carefully cut around it.
I rounded the corners of a 7x7" card blank and cut a panel of card slightly smaller than that and rounded the edges too. And then I just went to town with my Uniball fineliner, doodling a frame over which to place my image, a greeting and some pretty flowers and butterflies. Finally I added a simple border around the cardstock panel.
To finish the card, I simply adhered my doodled panel to the card front and attached my cut-out image using foam tape. :)
This lovely stamp is available in red rubber or digi format from the Sweet Pea Stamps store - and don't forget there's currently a sale on!
