Li'l Tin's Brain Needs Oilin'!

Do you know what time it is?  Oh yeah, it's Doodle Pantry time! I am so excited about this July release, and I think you are going to be too. In addition to some fabulous digi sets, Laurie has created an homage to The Wizard of Oz. There are 4 individual sets: Li'l Dot, Li'l Roar, Li'l Scare and Li'l Tin; and a bundle called Li'l Oz, that has all four of these sets, plus a combined image of all 4 characters on the brick road and 4 additional curved sentiments.

For this release, I chose to use a pre-colored image of the tin man and a sentiment from Li'l Tin. It is an absolutely adorable set, and so much fun to play with. I also used the yellow brick road from the Li'l Dot set. Here is a picture of what you will get in the two sets I used.


Using my Fireworks software, I combined the yellow brick road, with Li'l Tin standing on it, and the sentiment into one file. I printed this out twice. I know it's hard to tell, but Li'l Tin is actually dimensional. I hand-cut his hat, body, left hand, knees and shoes and popped them up on top of the original image. I used the Sakura clear glitter pen on all of his bolts to make them stand out a bit. I then added a metal heart on his body. The oil can was cut using my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file from their online store. I used the glitter pen to make it shine. This was layered on a piece of designer paper from the Li'l Tin set.

Doodle Pantry is also having a wonderful 4th of July sale from July 1st - 7th. You will get 25% off any of the new July releases (with the exception of Li'l Oz, which has already been reduced). Just use the coupon code JULY25OFF at checkout to receive your discount.
