Passion for Promarkers - Doodleicious

Good morning, dear Bloggers!  My, these weeks are just flying by, can't believe we are already half way through May!  So today, it's time for another Challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week the theme has been set by the lovely Shelly - she has chosen Doodleicious, so we want to see any sort of doodling on your cards!
We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Digistamp Boutique and they are offering one lucky winner 6 digis of their choice...how cool is that?!
 Don’t forget you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers) and of course follow the theme.
 So, for my card, I have used the sweet DSB image from Off to School Rosie and Dan...
...I decided to make an easel, easel card!  I created the easel shape from kraft card, then placed on the front and drew around the outside to know where to cut my card base.  I then made a frame and attached a printed blackboard behind with the sentiment 'For a Special Teacher' on...
...I coloured little Dan with my Pro and Flexmarkers, so here's the colours for all you Letraset fans :
Skin : Blush, Dusky Pink, Sunkissed Pink
Hair : Sandstone, Caramel, Auburn, Firebrick, Rosewood
Shirt : Blue Grey 1, Cool Grey 1
Trousers: Cool Grey 1, 3,4 & 5
Tie : Red, Berry Red, Burgundy
Apple : Aniseed, Lime Zest, Pale Pink, Cocktail Pink, Antique Pink, Ruby
Rucksack : Glacier Blue, Arctic Blue, Celestial Blue, Sapphire
Lunch bag : Glacier Blue, Vanilla
Shoes : Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa, Umber, Black
...I added some Glossy Accents to the apple and lunch bag and blushed his cheeks with pink chalk - I find I get a much softer effect using chalk...
...I attached a gold star and some diamantes as nail heads, then set about with my doodling...
...I was quite brave and added some childlike doodling to the exercise book paper on the base, some faux stitching on the blue plaid and a swirly doodle on the easel.  A 'Thank you' sentiment printed using Serif's Darling font and cut with my nesties Label Seventeen finished off the card.  I hope you like my little creation and that you can join in with us at Passion for Promarkers this week!
Don't forget to drop by my lovely teamies and see what wonderful creations they have come up with - Cathy, Julie, Lou, Nic (Coops), Shelly, Vicky, Lucy (LoopyLou) - and we look forward to seeing what creations you make!

Hi Lisa, what a great school card! I love the LO and your doodling is perfect! Shelly xx

Gosh Lisa this is so very clever, just the base easel/easel card you made is brilliant. Your doodling is fab...I know what you mean about taking a chance when you start, it could go so wrong and mess everything up. I hope your children have a very special teacher to give this too, it is a little work of art.
