Hello with Jane's Doodles

So this one is kind of an experiment.

As you may or may not recall, I've been learning to color, so the turtle was colored with my Spectrum Noir markers. My shading is still what I'd terms as textural, but think I'm making progress, and that turtle is very forgiving because he's so cute!

The card base is Bazzill Card Shoppe, and if you haven't tried it yet, I must say that I really love it. It's thick, but folds beautifully. The papers are Cosmo Cricket Social Club. For the word bubble, I just sketched a bubble, cut it out and added the border with my Pigma Micron marker.

I'm planning to link this up to the Simon Says Stamp challenge and they encouraged us to incorporate some washi, so I added that red washi at the top and bottom. It was a little too stark and solid when I first put it together, so I ended up tearing the edge to soften it and create some interest.

You can't tell from the photo above, but the word bubble and turtle are popped out with dimensional foam tape.

Thanks for visiting, I'm hoping to have not one, but two posts tomorrow, so swing on by!
