Stampotique Designer's Challenge ~ #142 Use a pen/paint pen/marker

Time for a brand NEW challenge today over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge and the lovely Magda is our hostess this week and here is what she has to say...

I always have a pen or pencil with me. Always with notebook full of drawings and doodles. I'm sure not only me! I would love to see a pen in your project. It can be a drawing, doodles or simply some journaling. It might be even a single word. I'm looking forward to see your entries for this challenge!
Great challenge! Magda! 
My pens and pencils are my favourite tools by far! I've created a little Easter tag and had great fun doodling...

The way Easter is coming we WILL be still wearing hats and scarves like Weasel !!

The background was made using Distress Inks and water. Weasel was stamped onto white cardstock, embossed and coloured with Copic pens then added to the tag. I did the same with Daniel's Hare but stuck him onto 3D foam pads before adding him to the tag.

Floral Flutter and the Crow Line were both stamped directly onto the tag using Archival ink. I doodled around the border and flowers with a couple of my favoruite pens Uniball pens from France Papillon's gorgeous Etsy shop :))

Thank you for calling. Happy Easter to you All!
