CTMH Technique Blog Hop: Music to the Eyes

We have a fun, easy technique to share with you this month, so grab your journaling pens or markers!  (If you've already joined the hop, then you should have arrived from Di's blog.  You'll visit Catherine next!)
Here is the first of three different cards to share with you.  Can you tell how I used my black journaling pen to trace the letters in "hello?"  (Hello was cut with my CTMH/Cricut Artbooking cartridge with Hollyhock card stock.)  Both this card and the next use the Brushed paper pack and the February stamp of the month, A Happy Hello.
 Since I wasn't happy with how the sentiment covered up that large, pretty flower, I stamped my card base again.  This time, I used the black journaling pen to add doodles to the stamped images themselves, and...
I placed the outlined sentiment on the inside.

My final card used the negative cutout and the Heartstrings paper pack.  (Do you love that half circle medallion as much as I do?!?)  This time I used my silver marker to outline the inside of the cutout to make the sentiment pop just a bit.

Are you ready to grab your pens and add a little bit more to your artwork?  Please go see Catherine's adorable project and the rest of the technique hop for more inspiration!  Thanks for hopping by.
