Dragonfly and doodles

Good morning and happy weekend, today my card is for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin'...our theme this week is 'add some doodling' can be a little or a lot as long as it's there. It seems that doodling is something you either love...or hate...doesn't seem to be a middle ground :) Me, I love it, so I had a great time creating my card. The cute dragonfly is a stamp, but he looks kind of doodled so I chose him as the focal point of my card, stamped him onto white card, coloured with copics and die cut into a circle. I then doodled the border around the edge. I matted the circle onto a slightly larger green one then placed it in the middle of my card base and lightly drew around it with a pencil, I used a black pen to draw a border around the edge and then doodled the corners and edges that showed around the circle...I started off trying to make it symmetrical, but soon got tired of that so just drew where I wanted to...sooo relaxing!
Well, are you a doodle - lover or do you hate it with a passion? Whichever it is why not have a go and join us this week...if it's something you love doing you'll enjoy it and if it's something you hate you might surprise yourself! Take a look here and see what my teamies have come up with, there are some brilliant makes, some of the team are definitely not in the doodling fanclub but they've all come up trumps with their clever ideas.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the weekend.
