When a Doodle is as Good as a Stamp

Posted on

I went to a friend’s house a few days ago to craft some cards together. Although I have fun crafting together, I find that I never get much done because I’m so busy chatting. However, I did get a card completed and I had fun with Kim and Linda.

I have been thinking about buying a stamp that features birch trees. There have even been a few birch tree stamps in various shopping baskets of mine online but, I just kept balking at the cost. So the other night I decided to see if I could doodle some instead. And the result was really pleasing. Plus I saved myself at least $10!

Stacy Yacula Studio stampsI doodled the trees and the banner as well as the presents, grass and dandelions. The adorable animal stamps are from A Sweet Summer set by Stacey Yacula Studio. You can find them here at Purple Onion Designs And all but the shading under the black on the birch tree bark, was colored with colored pencils and blended with baby oil.

Next time I would stamp the birds first and then draw the wire under them. It was hard to see because, they are red rubber and not clear acrylic stamps. But hopefully my niece won’t notice that the bird is not quite on the wire.

Happy Stamping Doodling,

Mo
