Challenge Blog – Less Is More Doodle

One so its One Layer Card time over at Less is More and they are challenging us to do something that I cannot get to grips with – Doodling and when I saw the challenge this morning – I balked. But then I saw the Tag line – “Make something with ink – by hand…” and I realised it was something I could literally (well with my finger) and do some thumb printing…

Its something I probably haven’t done since childhood – cover your thumb in ink, press it on to a sheet of paper and make something out of the resulting shapes… this just cried out for Bees.

I have been experimenting a little with inks this morning and chalk inks work best with my thumbs

Bee Happy today
