First attempt

I love doodling, as do several of my craft buddies, but I usually doodle freely in my artwork rarely using stamps etc. Lisa (Link here: http://lisasparkleandstamps.blogspot.co.uk/ ) one of my craft buddies is a stampaholic and does some amazing doodles which also incorporate some stamping. They are often 'weird and wonderful' and I love them. I always feel inspired by the little stories she journals on them and I've always wanted to have a go but I don't own any 'weird character' stamps of my own ( Yet!! ). 

When we last got together I borrowed some of her much loved 'Stampotique' stamps 
(link: http://www.stampotique.com ) 
to stamp up a couple of  images and so the other night while hubby was watching the Paralympics, out came my trusty Promarkers and my fine-liner pens along with a couple of texture background stamps and my black ink and these were my results. 

They're no where near as intriguing as Lisa's but I've had a go and  really enjoyed doing them. 
I  have to say though Lisa, I think I've 
caught the 'weird' bug and it's your fault
 that I now have even more ideas to add
 to my evergrowing Christmas wish list.  LOL


Well, we can all dream-can't we?
