MIM: Color Outside The Lines

I loved this weeks Make It Monday video ... permission, nay encouragement, to just scribble.  Gotta love it, especially when it turns out so darn cute!

I decided to take to scribbling on my new acorn stamps, because they just seem so suited to it

As it turned out, while there were a lot of acorn tops in the set, there was just a solid acorn bottom so I had to improvise a little.  I just rolled the edge of the stamp on the ink pad ... I got that little bit of linen look on the opposite corners, which was a surprisingly awesome thing to see when I stamped!

Then I scribbled with the Dark Chocolate and Aqua Mist copic trios (who wouldn't love an aqua acorn, I ask you!?!)

While I was at it I decided to color some chocolate bakers twine too.  Just wedged the twine under the chisel point end of my Sketch marker and pulled it through.  Wasn't looking for full coverage since after all this is about scribbling this week :)

Thanks for stopping!


  1. This is so cute! What a great idea with the acorn bottom and it looks awesome!!!! I've got to get that set! So, you actually colored your chocolate twine blue? Looks great!

  2. I REALLY like this card! I love the colors you used for the acorn and the way you colored them on the card. Awesome card!

  3. What a great idea! Wonderful coloring job, too. I love the clean and simple style.

  4. Love the clean look of your card even though you were scribbling! Colors are great and the twine is perfect.

  5. Darling card... gunna have to get this set afterall. ;) Love that you colored your bakers twine to match- brilliant!
