1 stamp 3 ways - doodled lines

the doodle background by pinkfresh is a really adorable stamp but it has been neglected in my collection. this week i'm making it the star with 1 stamp 3 ways. here is my second card:
i used clean color markers to color just one strip of the background and then stamped it on bristol. clean color markers aren't really great for getting a sharp impression when using direct-to-stamp and they will stain clear stamps a bit BUT they are awesome for matching colors with no-line watercoloring.
then i used the matching clean markers to fill in the border image and blended it with a waterbrush.
i die cut 2 hearts and placed gold paper in the negative space.

i mounted the panel to a card and added some gold sequins.
super simple and sweet!

xo,
carly
