Doodled Dots Card - Kraft, Cream, and Blue

For this card, I punched four large dots, doodled and colored on them, and drew four more partial circles. With a few lines and stripes of paper, it makes an interesting card.

The punched dots are 1.75", Papertrey Ink vintage cream (top row) and kraft (bottom row) card stock. The partial circles are drawn directly onto the white card base. The sentiment, "Thinking of you," is computer-printed (Chalkduster font) on a 1/2" strip of white card stock and layered on a 1.5" strip of black paper. The lines are black Copic multiliner and white Uni-ball gel pen.

The Copic marker colors are B01 and E43. The E43 is a great match for the kraft paper - just a bit darker, as you can see from the darker brown stripes in the bottom right kraft dot. The B01 on kraft is a very muted color, while on white or cream, it's much brighter.
