Thank you for joining Tiffany Doodles’ first blog hop of 2012! I am so glad you’re here! It’s ALSO the second anniversary of Tiffany Doodles!
And here is my card for the hop…
My card is probably the most simple one you will see in this blog hop . But this is me, and nowadays simple clean lines, with no fuss is what I am all about. My house seems to be in an eternal mess, with plastic toys everywhere ( I have two girls under the age of 3 years…), so my craft projects tend to be more simplistic. This card started with a different idea in my head, but I LOVE what I made with it in the end!!!
I do not own a Copic marker. No madam I do not. I eye them everytime I am out at the art supply store, but I have restrained myself. I really have too many scrapbooking supplies at home that I don’t use enough, so I am trying to use what I have more and more. But with no markers, I had still planned to make this card with color pencils and glossy accents, but this clean kinda debossed effect of the flowers worked felt better.
For this card I used the color inspiration from the colourQ challenge #119…
And here is a looksie at how I made this in Adobe Photoshop CS5,
That flowering branch doodle is so pretty, it really didn’t need any more adornment. I just drew a rectangle pink box beneath it and a grey box (slightly larger in size) beneath it. The pink rectangle has a orange stroke around it. To highlight my sentiment, I colored one flower dark bright pink by using a mask.
Print onto a 8.5 by 11 inch cardstock, trim and form the card. And I was done. As easy as that. This would be great procedure for making cards in bulk. Imagine using one of the heart doodles to make your kids valentines next month!
I often make hybrid cards, so if you have any questions, ask them in the comment section below and I will answer them there…
