Special Season

Its the first of the month so that means a new release from Doodle Pantry! I always need Christmas cards and just love playing with Doodle Pantry's Ants so chose to work with Stocking Ants. I love vintage and found fantastic paper to work with. I coloured the sock with copics and the way the paper absorbed the ink makes it look like suede. Take a look at what the other DT members created you'll love all the images!
Doodle Pantry's release this month is huge, there is something for everyone, as well as a sale. All new October 1 Doodle Pantry products, (no SVG/templates) AND re-released images that were previously sold at Clear Dollar Stamps (CDS) are 25% off , the coupon code is 25OFFNEWOCT.
