By the Sea




Doodle Pantry is sponsoring  the one Stop Craft Challenge for the week of  Aug 11th, 2012 and the theme is 'Summer Holiday'! I used a Doodle Pantry's  digital stamp set called 'Pelican Dreams'. This set contains coloured and outline images, digital papers and sentiments. The choice of this stamp set was to reflect  a summer holiday spent at  the sea shore (wishful thinking on my part)!
For this card I used the outline image and coloured the Pelican  and wharf with a combination of  Prismacolor and Copic markers.  The pelicans body was coloured with Copics and the beak and wharf with Prismaclors. The sentiment is computer generated.
Card Details:
Stamp: Doodle Pantry's Pelican Dreams;
Sentiment: Computer generated
Paper: Card stock (Marina Mist) from Stampin' Up,  DCWV The Glitter Stack designer paper
