Doodle Pantry Ant Masquerade


I have a fun Doodle Pantry card to share with you today!

When I saw this new release earlier this month I was so excited!!!  I have the Ant Masquerade digital stamp set that was previously released as line drawings to be colored. In my "so many stamps" life I haven't gotten around to coloring the images for cards and now I can use the pre-colored images!  
I wouldn't have thought to use some of the colors in the pre-colored version either and I LOVE the digital papers that come in this set to match the images.  My card layout is a sketch from "Fetch A Sketch" that I wanted to try.  It took some thinking and math on my part and I'm really happy with the way my card turned out.  Here's a peek at the sketch.


I also like the matching digital papers most Doodle Pantry colored stamp sets come with because I like to dress up my cards a little with envelope liners.  Most of my cards are donated to Operation Write Home and I think envelope liners make them just a little more special.

Speaking of Operation Write Home... I'm entering my card in our Midweek Throwdown challenge today.  The theme is "A Bugs Life".

Thanks for visiting my blog today -
