The production line.....

As it had been commented on about production line cards - I thought it was only fair to show you mine.
I have made approx 100 in 3 days to all those I can't make individual cards for- not enough hours in the day.

This is a selection of this years production line! I have printed my doodles on to Polkadoodles papers.
Cut pieces of DP (mostly last years leftovers from the bits box)
Then added some inked edges and stamping using Polkadoodles stamps and some Hero arts stamps.
Finished with a little sakura doodling and colouring.
