Doodling Journal style

I just wanted to have some inky fun last night and experimented with distress stains on two different types of card and on canvas with and without gesso.

I need a birthday card for my teenage granddaughter so decided to enter the Stampotique challenge - Oodles of Doodles - as it's such a long while since I have done so and made this, using the top piece of card.

Over the inky and paint layers I added an inky frame, stamped onto tissue paper and glued on, stamped the heart border, punched some extra hearts and lots of doodling round the edges, round the frame, on the punched hearts and made the birthday tag. Hey-ho complete.

Sooo good to be getting back into the swing of things.

For those who know me, hubbie is home from hospital, having had a scan and an endoscopy. Some bits wrong like hiatus hernia, gastritis and sludgy gall bladder and he will have that out in May. So we are hoping he doesn't get the awful pain back again before he has to go in and have the gall bladder out. Here's hoping!!

Have a good evening .
