June Release

Good morning. The start to a new month also means a new release at Doodle Pantry and what a great release it is! I got to work with the new set Canada from the World Countries Series. I printed the outlines of the maple leaf 3 times in 3 different sizes and coloured them with prisma pencils. The beaver I coloured first with prisma markers and then used the pencils to draw in the fur of his coat. I've never had great success with hair/fur of animals but love how this turned out.
Take a look at what the other DT members created you'll love them!
