Embrace (2 Challenges)

Challenges

Truly Scrumptious (3) - Sketch (Shiny)

Penny Black (41) - Doodling

This gorgeous little elephant stamp was kindly lent to me by a friend so that I could stamp a few images out, thank you Jean.

I enjoyed using this lovely sketch and will no doubt use it again. I decided to go with my favourite colour pink and chose papers accordingly. Now 'doodling' and me don't get on, and I try to avoid it like the plague but thought I had better have a go. Have you spotted it yet??? If you look very carefully... Yep! it is going around the edge of the circular bit of paper. Well done if you spotted it as it doesn't show up very well. I used a white Sakura pen expecting it to show up more. I watercoloured the image using my pencils and stippled ink around the edges before attaching it with foam pads. I have put buttons in the corners and just to be a bit different, I added gems to them.
