Doodle Pantry Quirky Skunk


I bet you were expecting to see a card using Doodle Pantry's Quirky Skunk digital stamp set!  I need to buy some ink for my OfficeJet printer and just haven't done it so I was rummaging through my scrap pile and this card formed in my mind.

I used Doodle Pantry's Quirky Skunk designer paper that comes in the digital stamp set and Doodle Pantry's Merciful & Good digital stamp set for my card.  Kind of a weird combination but it works for me.  It was fun to take a limited amount of supplies and see what I could put together.  You may recognize the sketch, it's Splitcoast Stampers Sk#343.  

The digital papers have an off white background so I used a sheet of Cream Linen cardstock I've had for a long time and the polka dots matched Stampin' Up! Taken With Teal, all waiting in the pile of scraps beside my cutter.
