New from Doodle Pantry!

It's the start of a new month - May Day - which brings back memories long ago of elementary school celebrations singing "May Day, May Day, we'll have lots of fun..."   Well, we're having lots of fun today over at Doodle Pantry with a new release of some fabulous new digi stamp collections sure to please everyone!

We have more ants up to their antics, sheep scuba diving and our signature birdie cooking up magic with its barbecue grille!  On top of that, there are a couple of digi sets offered free with your purchase of Doodle Pantry collections and at noon today a new challenge at the Doodle Pantry Blog. You can find all the new sets at the Doodle Pantry site.

This Baby Sea Turtle is one of the new digi sets that I just love.  It's a perfect image for male cards as I've done here for my Dad's birthday coming up later this month.  The set comes with black outline images, pre-colored images, matching digital paper and several sentiments.  Here, I colored the image with Copic markers using layer upon layer of color to achieve the shading and highlights.

And once again I found the most perfect sketch to showcase this new turtle image at Sketches by Carly. I'm entering my card in their challenge.  Thanks for the inspiration Carly!

Now, speaking of inspiration.... Head on over to Doodle Pantry for a closer look at the releases today where you'll find some amazing samples of each set created by the Doodle Pantry Creative Team.  And stay tuned here because I'll be showing more cards using the new images and talking about other promotions at Doodle Pantry in the next few days.  Until then....

Thanks for stopping by!

Your coloring is awesome and I *LOVE* the texture/color on your background circles. How did you do that? Is it paper, colored, embossing, stamping? I just can't tell, but I love it!
