For those of you hopped over from Leigh O'Brien's blog, you've reached the end of the road, and you know what that means*. But first, I'd like to share my creations with the newest Doodle Factory Stamps. Allow me to "Set The Scene"...
Tracey came up with this idea sometime last year. She wanted to give the Doodle Factory characters scenes to play in, and I have to admit I was uncertain about drawing and then stamping these images since they were so different from anything I'd done previously. I waited until the last minute to finish my cards, but I'm actually thrilled with the outcome and had a great time putting these together.
There are FOUR scenes total. The first one I inked was the "Jungle", and here's the final card:
Once I colored in the background, I decided to ink up a few characters from the Great Outdoors set. I'm pretty sure bears don't live in the jungle, so I decided to color him in camouflage green and have him hiding out behind one of the ferns (I inked just a small section from the jungle stamp and cut it out for Yoris to hold). I originally wanted the card to say "Where Have You Been Hiding?", but I found the "Feeling A Little Lost?" in the Outdoor Sentiment set instead. As a final touch, I used some flower soft in the grassy area. [Close-Up Here].
Honestly, I didn't think I was going to finish a second card, but I had to give another one a try. This time I used the "CountrySide" scene featuring "Fern" (the doe) who is also from the Great Outdoors set.
I cheated on the sentiment - I added it in digitally because I messed up my hand-written attempt. I'm sure you'll forgive me, especially since I'm going to be giving away what you've all been waiting for....
