Hi girlies! I saw that Sandy Allnock is hosting at the OOZAK Challenge this month, so I decided to give it a go. This is a new challenge blog for me, plus I have been trying to learn about using Copics by watching Sandy’s wonderful tutorials.  (Guess what? I took the plunge and got some Copics…. stay tuned for some coloring attempts by me coming soon). 

If you follow my blog, you know I love Doodle Pantry, but I use pre-colored digis. It is time for a new Doodle Pantry challenge so for this card, I used their paper and pre-colored image.

I wanted to do a card that could be used for a man or a woman, so I decided to go with colors that could appeal to either.  The pelican and sentiment, and the DSP’s are all from Doodle Pantry.  I combined the pelican and sentiment so they could fit on one Spellbinder oval. I then stacked that on a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two. 

I used Craftwell cardstock for the brown and blue bases and the Spellbinders.  The brown print paper was run through a crimper to add more dimension and then sewn onto the base.  Three metal brads, some bakers twine and a Fiskar’s border punch complete this card.

You can see from this picture that I kept it nice and flat for easy mailing.

    Thanks for playing along at the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge this month - love the pelican. I'm like you - prefer the pre-colored images but also took the plunge and bought Copic markers. Just keep practicing and you'll get the hang of them! :-)
