Doodle Pantry! I’m Baaaack! Iris Card


Yeah! I was invited to join the Doodle Pantry team again for this term! I am so privileged and excited to be using Laurie’s gorgeous designs again! She draws beautiful landscapes and flowers, cartoon critters and adorably realistic baby animals that are so cute you just want them to come to life so you can hug them! Some images even come with several of their own coordinating background papers and some are colourized for super quick paper crafting!

There are new releases today in the store so be sure to visit! One of them was this gorgeous iris.

Beautiful right? I figured everyone else would colour it traditionally using white and purple with a yellow throat so I went with a very pale pink one. Yes, I checked, they do exist!

I find I have trouble matching DP to Laurie’s flowers because they are so delicate and lovely I don’t want to overshadow their beauty with busy DP so I often go with a fair bit of a neutral. The DP I did use was in small amounts, some solid and patterned paper from the Kioshi pack. But since I used so much neutral, I added some subtle texture with an embossing folder and a shaped base.

You can see samples from all of the new releases here at the Doodle Pantry store. If you are interested in showing off your creations or just chatting about Doodle Pantry, feel free to visit us at our CDAC (Crafter’s Digital Art Center) group. DP at CDAC. Questions about how to use, colour, resize, combine or print digi stamps? It’s all there!

Enjoy, Rebecca
