Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge - Doodle a Frame

This week's Speedy Fox and Friends challenge on the MFP Blog was to doodle a frame on your card.  I confess that doodling is not my forte, but I gave it a shot.   And I'm also not a wine connoisseur, but I learned that cabernet grapes are red (found that on the internet!).  In fact, there are a great many varieties of red grapes.


My card is pretty simple.  I stamped the bunch of grapes and then colored them using Copic markers -- RV32, RV34, and R39 for the grapes; YG91, YG93, YG95, and YG97 for the leaves.  The "frame" was made with a Memento Bamboo Leaves marker and then sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Crushed Olive ink.  If you'd like to try your hand at doodling, we'd love for you to play along with us.  Just remember to link your card up on the MFP Blog for a chance to win a free stamp set.  If you use an MFPaHC set, you get two chances to win!

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers - No Sour Grapes
Paper:  MFP Garnet, Snow Storm Smooth
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Crushed Olive
Accessories:  Memento Bamboo Leaves marker, Sponge applicator, White gel pen
