Addicted to CAS, CFC168 and Happy Little Stampers Watercolour



Hi, everyone!!!!!


When I saw the Doodling challenge at Addicted to CAS I knew I wanted to try my hand at doodling and see if I can create something to link at the challenge!!!!!!  So I had some fun this morning and made a card that I will link at two more challenges, too!!!!  At the CAS-UAL Fridays Challenge Blog you have to make a OL and at Happy Little Stampers I will link at the Watercolour Challenge. 




    
  This is my card:





I doodled some daisies and watercoloured it using my watercolour pencils and water.  I've coloured the inside of the frame with a very soft blue, going somewhat over the lines of the frame for a playful feel, but it doesn't really show in the photo, it's too soft.
Tried to do the lettering in a very loose style to go with the style of the daisies.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.
I really enjoyed making this card!!!!




The card below was actually my first try at doodling and the one above my second try, but I'm not linking this one at any challenges.



I'm so happy with my new watercolour pencils!!!!  I've tried my hand at watercolouring with watercolour paints, but I haven't had much success with it so I thought I should give the watercolour pencils a try as I love to colour with pencils!!!!  It's so easy to do the colouring and then add the water for the watercoloured look!!!!!  I'm going to have lots of fun playing with these pencils!!!!!




Thanks for visiting!!!!  Lovely having you here!!!!

Wish I could 'doodle' this well. I didn't realize your flowers were doodled until I read your post. Your coloring is fab, naturally, and I'm loving your skill at 'doodling'. Each one is so pretty. Also thought #1 was just perfect, and #2 equally so. Love the cheery colors too! The framework brought the flowers to life so nicely. TFS & have a great week.

Your floral cards are so pretty, Petra! I love your watercolouring! So lovely and soft! I also love your doodling! It looks like it's part of the stamped image - well done! I find doodling so hard - I've never been a doodler! Beautiful cards, my friend!

Petra, these are amazing!!!! I'm completely blown away. Your "doodling" is fantastic and your lettering is incredible! Wow. You should definitely do this more often! So glad you love your watercolor pencils. I am still trying to find the right watercoloring medium for me. This might be an avenue that I need to explore.

Mona Pendleton said...

So pretty Petra! I love how you colored the pretty little blossoms!

Karren said...

How I wish I could 'doodle' like that! These are fabulous.

Estelle TBT said...

Kylie said...

Both cards are amazing. I LOVE your doodled flowers and borders. Gorgeous colouring too. Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers xx

Anita in France said...

Amazing, Petra ... such pretty doodling on both cards ... and your lettering on each is fantastic! These would both be perfect at The Flower Challenge! Hugs, Anita :)

cm said...

Marveling at your doodled water-coloured flowers that are, indeed, one layer wonders! Adding my voice to the others: your artistic flair is incredible! If you designed stamps with these images, they'd be coming to my collection for sure! I think your first, with the flowers-and-frame as one image would be a hit in the crafting community, as would your sentiments! Perhaps something to think about...Petra's Passions Stamps *grin*
Hugs~c

Bobby said...

I'd bet you're the only one who actually doodled the entire card, Petra. Bravo to you. Your daisies are darling and I love the frame you created for them. I also love your other card and your handwriting is amazing. I'm with Carol. Stamps designs for sure. I'm so glad you shared your card with us at Addicted to CAS.

Martha said...

OH, Petra, what darling cards you've created! You are one talented artist. Beautifully done!

Jaydee said...

Another set of fabulous cards, Petra. I love the framing of the first - it really makes the daisies pop and the little touch of yellow is perfect. Wonderful take on the challenge and, I always enjoy your backdrops - the scenery is wonderful and takes my mind back to some wonderful holidays on the Garden Route.
Thanks for joining us at Addicted to CAS this week

Becca Cruger said...

You doodled these?! Do your talents know no bounds? Absolutely adorable cards, Petra!

Joyce said...

Wow, that is some doodling. I cannot believe that you were able to do that free hand. You definitely should stop buying stamps! You can just doodle. Two beautiful cards.

Angela Bode said...

Both cards are so cute! You are a master doodler!!!! I love the frame you gave the first one and all the dots near the stems! I love the pink garden on your second card! You are so talented!

sandie said...

Your doodling is amazing Petra, love how the flowers over lap the frame and the soft blue inside the frame. Thank you for all your lovely comments on my blog and I am slowly getting back into it x

Donna Ellis said...

Love the doodling in both creations, Petra! I was forget to do that, and hope to remember now that I see how much fun you had! (smile) You are a good doodler LOL Love both cards, my friend! hugs, de

Barb Ghig said...

You are so talented, Petra! I love how you chose to draw your own daisies, and your doodled frame is fabulous! I love how you doodled your sentiment on the first card, too! Your doodled roses and leaves are also really charming! I think you have found a great idea for watercoloring with pencils...both cards are so pretty!
Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Addicted to CAS! We always enjoy seeing your creations in the gallery!!!

Shona Chambers said...

Well, aren't you clever, I thought these were stamp images!! For your first attempt at doodling Petra I would say your a natural and should start your own stamp company!! I love both of your cards and your doodling is 'doodly' but also very clean and precise. Please keep doodling and is always wonderful to see you at Happy Little Stampers!!

Pat said...

What fabulous doodles Petra so beautifully done and your lettering is wonderful too. x

Misty Elam said...

What beautiful doodles, Petra. I wish I could do that. Do you do lettering too?? You could sell those!! Like Suzy Plant does on Simon Says Stamp. I can totally see yours there!!! I'd buy them. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Zelda C said...

Love, love, love these cards! They are just fabulous! Well done Petra!
