Scribble-dee-doo-dah

No, I've got no idea where that post title came from either...

The other day I stamped a few Scribble This flowers on watercolour paper to colour at my leisure. I coloured two with the idea of cutting one out and mounting it over the other, but when it came down to it I liked how I had coloured each so much I couldn't bear to cover one up... so then I could make two cards instead of one. This one ended up being a CASE of a card by JanTink. The flower was coloured using the Elegant Eggplant and Rose Red inkpads (along with a touch of Bravo Burgundy) and an aquapainter, mounted over a Certainly Celery 1 3/8" square with a Pale Plum button for the centre. The celery square was stamped with the swirly scroll stamp from Scribble This in Certainly Celery ink, and then I stamped this on the Whisper White layer twice. At the bottom of the WW layer I stamped the Warm Words sentiment in Elegant Eggplant ink and the three little flowers, the "dot" at the bottom of the question mark from the Scribble alpha, has been stamped in StazOn and coloured like the main flower. A layer of Rose Red on Elegant Eggplant card base, Sweet Shop Ribbon Originals ribbon, and some cute little photo corners and voila! Bet you'll never guess how I did the photo corners...

WOW Carol!! It's been ages since I had a chance to do some blog visits, and now I've just spent all my allocated time here! You've been a busy bee lately! I'm loving everything you've been doing, so this is one big WOW instead of leaving about 100 comments. I see I'm going to have to visit more often!
