Taking a break from Bdoodling...

Hello and happy day to you!

For all those BdoodleZ fans out there you may have noticed that my shop is currently in vacation mode. After much consideration I have decided to take a break from BdoodleZ. This decision is a bittersweet one for me, while I LOVE the design process of creating my cards, the production end of it has been complicated, too time consuming, and ultimately not very profitable. So I am taking some time off, during which I hope to find a new way of production that will continue to provide the high quality product I demand but also allow me to produce large quantities of cards with ease and spend my time focused on design. I am hoping that by the late summer/early fall BdoodleZ will be back up and running, even better than before... but for the moment I can't know for sure.

In the meantime, I will still be reading etsy convos and emails, and may considering taking order requests on an individual basis. So please drop me a line in you have any questions at all!

Thanks for stopping by!

The Story Behind the Card: Pumpkin Thank You

I'm super excited about the new card I posted on Etsy today. Its a simple but fun Thank You card with an Autumn Theme. And it was created in part with my new fun gadget: a touch pad pen!

The design still began with one of my hand-drawn pen and ink doodles (the main pumpkin), which I scanned into photoshop (and hand in the past featured as a gift-tag design). The design was too small for a full sized card, so this is where the creative digital touches took hold. Using the line drawing functions in photoshop I created the lines for the border. Then I added the text.
But the card still looked a little empty to me, I wanted to add just a little more... and this is where the pen came in! Using my fun little toy, I drew an additional swirling vine above the pumpkin, along with border of the card. I actually was continuing a vine that had been hand drawn. Can you tell where the hand drawing ends and the digital doodle begins.
I doubt I'd ever give up my hand-drawing completely, but it is fun to dip my toes into the waters of digital drawing!
Love this card? Check out my entire Autumn Collection at my BdoodleZ Etsy Store.
