Grads, A Queen, and Mixed Media



 Splitcoaststampers Mix-Ability 13 challenge is doodling and using a minium of two mediums. Ouch! Doodling is something I have always stayed away from but here I am trying by doodling down the sides of my panel with a thin marker.

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist/Pink Party and Dragonfly to get my sprayed colors. I inked a metal frame and stamped on the top in Tim Holtz Distress Ink/Rusty Hinge.

The tickets were free digis from the Scrap-A-Licious blog. I added some decorative tape I purchased from Michaels Arts and Crafts.

Cardstock is Stampin'Up! Crushed Curry and Night of Navy. Also, white cardstock from scraps.

My card is also for the Queen for the Day #162, Jeanne S. This is the card I cased...for the sketch.

I'm entering my card at Through the Craftroom Door challenge blog-Anything Goes
Also, I am entering the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog-Anything Goes

I think that wraps it up for me for the weekend. Unfortunately, we are expecting rain and cooler temps Saturday. Boo Hoo  I wanted to work in my yard. Hope your weekend is full and warmth and pretty sunshine.

Love this color combo, Benzi! Wonderful 'tickets' and I love the doodling. I'm with you -- I avoid it as much as possible. I'm getting back into the swing of visiting and commenting. Sorry to have been MIA for so many days.

I thought your doodles were a frame/border stamp! They work well on the edges here. Love those fun tickets, too.
