Doodle me Vintage!

Hello & welcome to the Monday Squigglefly challenge! I'm lookin' for doodling this week! Make anything your little heart desires with a SF image and a bit of doodling!

You can find a wide variety of images at Squigglefly.com, from whimsical to vintage! Pop over and checkout the newest images just released...

SF artist-Rich Davis
Stamps: Squigglefly digital (vintage flower maiden)
SU! baroque motif
Paper: SU! cs., DP DCWV far east scraps
Ink: SU! classic pads & markers, gold gel pen
Other: gold ribbon scrap, CB folder (pumpkins)
vintage button from grandma's button jar!

I doodled with a gold gel pen and choc chip marker for the faux stitching! I smudged my gold doodling in the lower corners with brown ink and got a really cool "worn" look!

My vintage prop this time is a 1915 book entitled, "Bible Readings for the Home Circle"!

Hi maria. :) What a great bookmark. Yanno, I saw this technique where you tear the paper in such a way as for it to sit around the image like this. But, this looks fabulous! the other example wasn't as nice...LOL
