A New Year and New Images

Happy New Year Everyone, I hope you have a healthy, happy 2012! Along with a new year comes new images from Doodle Pantry and if that isn't enough there's still a sale of 50% off  all stamps for today and tomorrow. Go to the specials page at Doodle Pantry, grab the coupon code, and go shopping! 
There are fabulous new images and I chose this wolf who was so easy to work with. I used prisma markers on him but he looked too smooth, so I took a finger sponge and with a swiping motion added darker colours. IRL he looks soooo good.
 The background paper is wallpaper and I added epoxy dots to the eyes to add dimension. Nice!
Jan 1 is also the start of a new Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge. Just for participating, using a Doodle Pantry image, you receive a free image, the workout birdie. If you don't have an image you can browse the freebie page and grab one.
