Good morning! This week's DT challenge at Serendipity Stamps was to combine felt with Serendipity's doodle stamps. Mary has a whole line of these whimsical little doodle line images. Today, I am using the Ladybug doodle stamp.

After much deliberation, I decided that I was going to stamp on felt for my card.

I used Jet Black Archival Ink (my go-to ink for stamping on fabric) and stamped my ladybugs onto red felt. I set them aside to dry - I don't think this was a necessary step, but I took the time to put the rest of the card together.

I stamped the ladybugs again onto cardstock and picked some picnic-y, summer-y patterned paper to coordinate. I trimmed the ladybug body/wings from the felt and adhered it to the card with Scor-Tape.

Aren't they cute?
