MIM #203

I didn't think I was going to be able to make a card for the challenge at Make It Monday this week.  Ashley had a video about doodling around a stamped image and I didn't think I had any PTI stamps that would work for this technique.  I thought I'd just play around with Beautiful Blooms and see what happened and was delighted with the result.

I used HA Soft Lavendar and Butter Bar ink  The black doodling really makes the flowers stand out. I loved the bright polka dot look so added some PTI bitty dot paper as a frame to tie it all together.

This was so much fun I tried it again with Beautiful Brushstrokes.

Different flowers give a totally different look.  I have a feeling I will be using this technique again and again..

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Love both of these. So glad you were able to find stamps to doodle with.

  4. It's really amazing what a difference it makes! I have to try this on my tons of NBUS flower stamps! Thank you for the beautiful inspiration, Bobby! Hugs, Darnell

  5. I was hoping to play along with this challenge, but I think time has run out - love your sketchy flowers!

  6. These are both brilliant, Bobby ... love the sketchy look of the doodling ... really makes those blooms pop! Anita :)
