Winter Wear lady dons mask!

Hello, crafting friends!

When I saw the Doodles challenge at Less is More yesterday, I let out a happy little squawk because it gave me the perfect opportunity to get Concord & 9th's Winter Wear stamp set out again! The ladies in the set have half faces because they're designed to peep over things but I've been enjoying doodling in the rest of the faces!

Today though, I've gone all topical and doodled a mask! The lady is stamped with Memento black ink and coloured with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The doodling was done with a water-based black pen. When I'd finished doodling and colouring, I masked my lady (no pun intended but while we're here we might as well enjoy it!!), placed the Brick Wall stencil from Funky Fossil over the top and sponged SU's Soft Sea Foam ink into it. I love the way the colour sings with my lady's beautiful red hair! 

I've seen this sentiment going around Blogland and it's perfect for this card, but I don't have it. So, in the spirit of the whole doodling thing, I just wrote it with a fine liner! The panel was cut out with a Heffy Doodles stitched rectangle die and attached to a card base with dimensionals.

And here's the stamp that was the starting point for this card. 

I'm joining the LiMettes at Less is More with this card. Happy doodling!

The cooler weather has brought out all the instincts of the huntress out in Madame de Floof! 

Me: Quick Eva, there's a squirrel...!

Eva: Where? Where'd he go?!
Me, in a pantomime voice: It's behind you...!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

Sending hugs,


  1. Such a clever way to use that stamp - good job!

  3. How very appropriate using your new stamps Vicky and aren't they such strange times. Yesterday hubby and I had our very fist foray to a shop since March 6th, a very quick one as it was essential and not something that home delivery could accommodate. But it really wasn't a nice experience, you can see fear in people eyes and everyone and body language say's it all.

    Eva could spend hours looking up trees in our garden as we have a good few squirrels, there again there are the rabbits.

  5. Well now, this is a very topical card with the perfect handwritten sentiment and wonderfully doodled mask.
