Hi everyone! Kim here with a cute koala doodle-pop from Doodlebug Designs and a confession…I have a habit of hoarding my doodle-pops! I know, I know they are meant to be used but I sure do love looking through them and sometimes find it hard to use them up. That being said they really do make the cutest addition to cards.
I started off wanting to create some background paper with the koala stamps from the Hero Arts stamp set Realistic Animals. Using Gina K. Designs Amalgam ink in whisper I stamped the images all over the paper. It looked amazing at first and then once it dried I found that it was super hard to see which completely defeated the purpose. I didn’t want to completely lose the sheet so I decided to use it to frame the koala.
I had some paper in my stash that was covered in leaves and I thought it would be perfect for using as a background. While trimming the paper down the leaves seemed to lend themselves perfectly to being cut out and a few of them popped up with some pop dot pieces. Some cards you may spend quite some time coloring an image or spend some time doing an ink technique or playing with embossing paste but so often when I am using a doodle-pop as a main focus the card comes together so quickly that I find myself looking it over extra long to see what I missed.
Also the sentiment that was used on this card came from the Hero Arts stamp set Realistic Animals. I love this little koala’s face so sweet!
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you find some time for yourself today.
Keep on crafting,
