Doodle Challenge

I combined the sketch challenge and color challenge for this week with Doodle This and Doodle That and came up with this card. I was having a hard time at first combining those colors and then decided because there were lots of layers with this sketch they would work well together.

I flipped the sketch so I could use the round tab punch on the top. The flowers are stamped in all of the colors (really rust, old olive, chocolate chip, so saffron, cool caribbean) and then I stamped it again in chocolate chip and colored it in with markers. Then cut it out and used a dimensional to pop it up.

Now to see what the challenge is for today. I think it is the limited supplies challenge. Hopefully I can sneak in a little time to stamp again this afternoon before I pack my stuff up for tonight.

I just checked and it it the ways to use it challenge. This week you are to use fibers, if you don't have fibers you could use yarn instead. Anyone want to play along and try it? I have to admit I have lots of fibers but very rarely use them. This will be fun.

Edited (again): I really shouldn't try to post before I take Ian to school. I guess I was in too much of a hurry and read the wrong challenge. LOL!! So the real challenge for today is to use die-cuts in your project. Here is a link to the Ways to Use it Challenge for today. Ok, who wants to do the challenge with me? You don't have to have a die-cut machine. I'm sure most of you have purchased die-cuts or if you don't have any you could fake it and make your own.

Hopefully I got it right this time and won't have to edit this post again:)
