Jane's Doodles Cats


Jane's Doodles Dogs

If you follow my blog, you know I love cats – so I just had to colour this cute kitty like my cat Mack. I coloured him with Copics and added some detail with Prismacolor pencils.

Penny Black and July PageMaps

simplicity sister

This month I had the privilege of using some Penny Black products and created a card for the PageMaps July card sketch.


In order to follow the sketch, but avoid an overly busy card, I created a lot of subtle textures using some Penny Black stencils. Both the pattern on the butterfly and the chevrons in the background were created by running the stencil through my Cuttlebug with a rubber embossing mat. The blue dots were created with a stencil and coloured embossing paste.

You are a Blessing – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Today I’m sharing a card using some Jane’s Doodles stamps. I kept things pretty simple with this one. The flowers are coloured with Copics and then I added some Wink of Stella glitter brush pen for some shimmer. To ground the flowers, I added a couple of strips of patterned paper. For something different, I used some leather grain card stock for the card base.

You can find the post here on the Jane’s Doodles blog.
