Do A Doodle

It's Donna's turn to set the challenge this week at Creative Card Crew and she has chosen the theme of 'Do A Doodle' I am a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to doodling, but took a deep breath and gave it my best shot!

Thought I would give Miss Anya Rain a bit of an inking up as it was raining when I started to make the card. The papers are from an MME, Magnolia paper stack, loving these papers, they are all delish.
I had fun and games with the image, had coloured Miss Anya with copics, just thought I would add a little shading and the ink bled all over the edges of the stamped image so that ended up in the bin - in little pieces.

When I had sorted out all the layers and stuck them together I put them on the card base the wrong way round, grrrrr..... so off came the card front and stuck it to another. Boy is this card heavy now, even more so as I have decorated the inside, just glad I used papers not cardstock, otherwise the poor old postie would be getting a workout ;-)

The sponsor of this week's challenge is the lovely Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts, lots of lovely stash at wonderful prices, why not pay a visit and do some online shopping, my kind of shopping these days, don't have to put a foot out of the door or even get dressed!

I've followed the recipe at Anyone for Anya this week which is to use 3 papers, 2 buttons and 1 bow. The buttons are tiny but they are there, just about visible under the bows.
