My Favorite Doodle

The challenge this month at Beyond Greys is all about Doodling - hand drawn or etched creations. It's such a fun challenge and I guess I'm not the only one who thinks so. Literally every day when I check my blogger dashboard I see one or 2 projects created just for this challenge. All the entries, combined with the super awesome inspiration over at Beyond Greys - (I mean like WOW - Pooja's waves are just amazing and Snehal's bird is so clever and cute) just got me in the mood so here is my creation.


From my school days, my favorite doodle was always eyes. I loved drawing eyes - open eyes, closed eyes, beautiful eyes. There have been countless college lectures I have doodled through all the while, immersed in the eyes. So when I saw this challenge, there was only one thing I could do - relive my doodling days with some mesmerizing eyes. 

My other inspiration was the O Sanam video - I guess thinking of college made me think of that gorgeous song and that sad beautiful video, and that's kind of how this Arabic princess look came together. I did the skin with my copic markers - I only have the skin shades. The green I did with BIC markers. I completed it with this amazing DCVW La Creme pattern paper - you can't make out but  all the black flowers on this sheet are velvet... soooo pretty!! Got it from ItsyBitsy of course where I could just pick up the single sheet and saved some money. 



And this is the inside of the card... such a romantic cover had to have a romantic sentiment. I etched this one with my Cameo and a pen holder - 'I only have eyes for you'. Another reason to get nostalgic because that's kind of how I felt in college - met my husband when I was in 2nd year and only had eyes for him. 

Ta Ta for now :)

UPDATE 13/3/2013 - Won the Beyond Grey Challenge for this card! Yippee!
