Welcome to the very first Starving Artistamps Blog Hop! And what's the occasion, you ask? Well, we're celebrating the release of some brand new, very fun new DoodleFactory images...Set the Scene Backdrops! I've used the Rooftops and Tropical backdrops on my cards, and there are two more--Jungle and Country. Keep hopping to see them all!
Kathy Daume' at Pretty in Ink is next in our hop, but you're going to want to check out ALL of our blogs. Besides a collection of awesome cards, there's some blog candy hidden along the way. I don't have it, but one of us does, and you sure don't want to miss your chance!!! There's a complete list of all our blogs a little further down.
The first card I made is an Cocktail Party invitation using the Rooftops backdrop and Rupert from the Creatures collection. I colored this one with Prismacolor pencils and did just a tiny bit of blending with odorless mineral spirits. The printed paper is Basic Grey.
My second card uses the Tropical backdrop, and it's one of the those "just for fun" cards. The other images I used on the card come from the Tropics collection, and this one is colored with Copic markers.

And, before I go, here's a little something I promised to show a couple of friends of mine. I've been doing some beading off and on, and these are a few beaded bookmarks I've made recently. The one on the right is actually made of pieces from an old necklace I have laying around.
Enjoy the hop!
