Do a little Doodling Challenge


Miss Lydia on Splitcoast Stampers has a challenge for us in mixed media today. Use your doodling skills and two or more media on your creation. It's easy-peasy this week.

Mix-Ability Challenge: MIX13

Here's my check off list

  • Media 1 - ink from a stamp pad
  • Media 2 - water soluble oil pastels (yes there really us such a thing)
  • Doodling + Media 3 - BONUS, right? Black India brush pen

I stamped flowers on white cardstock that was die cut with a Spellbinders Label die. Coloring them up with some water soluble oil pastels.

Now it's time to water down the color with an aqua pen, but first I sketched in some two-tone green leaves (I forgot to snap a shot until I had already done the waterbrushing so the only leaves still sketched are to the left of the sentiment. It's a lot of fun coloring with these pastels)

Now it's time to doodle! Since the pen is a brush I was able to pressure adjust the doodling and got some crazy squiggles. Here is the finished card with all it's squiggles complete.

 
 It's easy peasy as long as you don't use the aqua pen AFTER you added the india ink medium. When you go back over it afterwards you get a very messy black haze all over your bright cheery flowers. Start over and remember it a second time, then it's easy peasy again.

Details:
Stamps: Surely Goodness (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Smooth white (Neenah), Kraft (Wausau)
Ink: Jet Black (Tsukineko), water soluble oil pastels (Smith and Binney/Crayola), India ink brush (Pentel Color Brush)
