Thinking of You

I do not draw & I do not doodle!  But I hate to miss a PTI MIM challenge, so when our plans changed to staying home yesterday I watched Ashley's video.  I was skeptical but figured wasting a little ink & paper was no big deal.  My last PTI order included the beautiful Friendly Flowers set because I loved the cards Rosemary made here & here.  Thought they would be a good choice to make it as simple as possible to do the doodling.  
I played around with lots of colors & settled on Hawaiian Shores for the large & small blossoms with Aqua Mist for the text, also PTI.  I wasn't happy with any of my pens & then I saw the Distress black soot marker & the fine tip end worked great.  I doodled around the petals & added dots to the flower centers which I covered with Stickles.  
The sentiment from Friendly Flowers is stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black. Finished off with DeNami twine & white sequins. Must admit it was fun to do a bit of doodling & I might even try it again.  I love the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches & used it for my layout.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

I honestly thought the doodles was part of the image. So I guess that makes you a good doodle-er? If that is even a word. Lol.

I can't even draw a stick figure that looks right - so I don't think I'd ever try doodling. But I have to say that looking at your flowers really shows how much a little doodling can add! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
