Holly Stag


Doodle Pantry is sponsoring  the Craft Your Passion challenge for the week of  Aug 8th, 2012 and the theme is 'Anything Goes, my favourite type of challenge! I used Doodle Pantry's new digital stamp set called 'Holly Stag'. This set contains coloured and outline images, digital papers and sentiments as well as a bonus PDF file containing 4 pre designed card fronts  and 2 tags, a marvelous amount  of digital products for the price (currently $3.00)
For this card I used the outline image and coloured the deer with a combination of  Prismacolor and Copic markers. I wanted him to be very light coloured and the Copics seemed to work for that. The holly and the ivy was coloured with the Prismacolors! The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Card Details:
Stamp: Doodle Pantry's Holly Stag;  Stampin Up's  Sleigh Bells Ring for the holly and ivy embellishment
Sentiment: Doodle Pantry's 'Holly Stag' stamp set
Paper: Card stock (Cherry Cobbler) from Stampin' Up, Basic Grey 'Wassail Noel' designer paper
Die Cuts: Spellbinders Nestabilities standard and scalloped  circles; Marianne Designs flourish
Punch: Martha Stewart's corner snowflake punch
Other: Pearls

  18. Love the coloring on the stag. I read your description and was surprised to find you used Copics on the stag and Prismacolors on the holly - I had guessed the other way around when I started reading that you used both. You have "mad" coloring skills, Glenda!
