Today is an exciting day - it's time for the Doodle Pantry February Releases! Laurie has some of her fun characters playing all kinds of sports. The birdie is playing baseball and the ants are creating their mischief on a hockey puck! If animal characters aren't your style, there is an old-fashioned phonograph, a realistic dolphin and cute quirky frogs (this month's free with purchase set). This month Doodle Pantry released a Love Star which is about the third in a series of seasonal stars (there's also an Autumn Star and a Winter Star). I chose to use the Love Star outline image for my release day card.
My friend Christi Beck did a post on watercoloring techniques, so I thought I would try it with the Love Star. I wasn't happy with how the coloring turned out, but I did like the card design so I thought I'd share it, too. I made the fancy corners with my Ornamental Irons 2 Cricut cartridge. Haven't dusted off the Cricut machine in quite some time. I'll have to make it more accessible so I can use it more!
Don't forget to participate in this month's Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge which begins today at noon and ends on February 24. Just for playing along, you will receive Phonograph set free AND be entered to win a gift certificate to spend in the Doodle Pantry online store.
On a sadder note, I'm going to take a little hiatus from the Doodle Pantry Design Team at the end of this month, but I may be back in August/September depending on what life has in store for me. I have absolutely LOVED working with Laurie (a fellow Texan) and the other ladies on the design team. I have made some great cyber friends and been inspired by them all! The silver lining - I can now take part in the monthly challenges! LOL
