TT109 'Doodles' with Tuesday Throwdown


Welcome to another Tuesday Throwdown Challenge! This week we are inviting you to 'Doodle' on your projects to be in with a chance of winning a very generous gift package from this week's Sponsor, Sherrod Studios

Kim is one of my Co-TTDT members,  but she also makes the most beautiful bags, phone cases, diaper bags, wristlets and much more...all via the online store.  You can visit her website here.

I was inspired by lots of the beautiful bags on Kim's website, particularly the fresh modern cotton prints and have tried to incorporate this into today's card.


I used a scallop edged oval lace frame available as a digital image from 'My Grafico' and a 'Thinking of You' digi stamp sentiment by 'Meljen's Designs' and printed off onto Kraft Cardstock and fussy cut around the lacey scalloped frame. I decided to draw a little tree as the Doodle element on my card.  I started by drawing a teardrop shaped outline and then used a black Faber Castell drawing pen to go in and create the doodled pattern on the tree iteself. I added a little colour to the tree and the lace frame using Copic markers.

Don't forget to visit the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge blog for FULL details of this weeks challenge and all the fabulous 'doodling' projects the rest of the TTDT have created.

I used the lovely ' July SFYTT' sketch by Jen Del Muro for my card layout...

Have a wonderful week...
