Doodle This 6 x 6 page

Even though this page was done as a 6 x 6 page, it can easily be converted to any size page you like to do.
I was going through my pictures trying to find something to scrapbook one day and ran across this one taken of Ali in December. The first thing I thought of was Stampin' Up!'s new Doodle sets in the Spring Mini catalog.
This page was a lot of fun to create. First, I stamped the images in VersaMark and embossed them with black embossing powder on black cardstock. Then, I just watercolored the images with bleach. I had to go over a few places more than once...I think I had left my bleach out too long. Anyway, once I finally got all the embossed images bleached, I colored them in with my Stampin' Write markers. I added a few dots to some of the images with a white gel pen and stamped the heart on white cardstock, colored it with markers, and cut it out. I used a dimensional to attach it to the corner of my photo.
This is a fun technique to do especially with the Doodle stamp sets. It can be a little time-consuming, depending on how much detail you want to put into it.
If you try bleaching, let me know how you do and if you like it or not. I'm interested in your comments!
