Less is More Challenge - doodle card

Oh, this was fun!  I stamped the little girl then masked her to print the script over but put an arch shape over first so I could doodle the arch in afterwards!  My dear husband says it looks more like an iron than an arch but hey, its pretty good for someone who can't draw (at all!).  I like the doodle around her hat much better!  See what you think anyway.

  1. Hola Margie, thank you for your comment, i'm glad to "see"you:D
    Well, an iron...maybe a gothic arch, better, more artistic:D
    Fantastic stamps and great idea for your doodling, beautiful card.

  2. Wow Margie - this is really effective. I've got this stamp and never thought of doing this. By the way.... perhaps you better give your husband the iron to use while you get on with your doodling!!! lol

  3. I love your card. love the doodling around the hat. Oh and there is nothing wrong with your arch. I can't draw either and it's much better than I could do.

  5. I have to agree it looks like an iron, but it doesn't detract from how beautiful your card is. I wish I had that pretty image on the bottom of my iron; if I did, I'd keep it out and handy and actually do some ironing! Your work is fantastic! (I like the scalloped edge, too.)

  7. The aqua &black combination really works. I'm still waiting for inspiration to strike for this week's challenge. Anyway, I think more arch than iron - maybe your husband should become more acquainted with the iron so he can make a more informed decision?!

  13. Ouuuu! I love the way you've masked & doodled. I have to try that! It looks perfect. And I think an arch... but an iron could be fun too. Aren't Hubbies hilarious when they critique our cards?
