Doodle Pantry Releases

Yay! It's new release day at Doodle Pantry and we have such fabulous collections to share with you.  Lots of holiday digis too - perfect for those that like to work ahead on their holiday cards.  This is one of those new images called Holly Stag and it's just lovely.

The Holly Stag collection comes with black outline images, as I used here, as well as two pre-colored versions. There are four digital papers that coordinate beautifully with the image and three pretty sentiments in the set.  And there's a bonus with this collection - a PDF sheet with pre-made card fronts and tags which are great for those times when you need something quick.  Lots of possibilities with this terrific collection.

To create the look on my card I used Copic markers and blended them a lot to get the shading just right.  The holly and berries were colored separately, cut out and glued on the reindeer with a little dimension. A bit of red stickles make the berries stand out and sparkle.

I was inspired by this sketch from Sketches by Carly. I love Carly's sketches and the creativity of the design team in showing them off.  I'm playing in the challenge there with this card.

Now head on over to Doodle Pantry and see the other collections released today.  There's a fun set that's free with your purchase and you'll find several sets that are perfect for back to school cards as well.  And a reminder that our new challenge for the month starts today.  You'll find details on that over at the Doodle Pantry Blog later today.

Thanks for stopping by!
