Less is More - one layer, doodling

So this week's Less is More challenge... Ermmm... one layer AND doodling????  Nope, not really happening here!  As I may have mentioned before I do not doodle.  I've really proved that to myself today, by wasting several hours and lots of card, trying to produce something even remotely clever or interesting.  Then I gave up... and did some faux stitching instead...


I used post it notes to mask off an area of the card, and then used 'gathered twigs' and 'walnut stain' distress inks to create the panel.  I then added a very boring row of faux stitching and stamped the Stampin' Up motorbike and Penny Black sentiment in black versafine.

I do quite like the finished card, but as an example of doodling it's a bit pitiful - sorry!
