Overflowing with Loot

December release day for Doodle Pantry. There are so many things going on at Doodle Pantry, especially for the first week. Check out all of the awesome stamp sets released this month, along with more SVG cuts!

I chose to combine two stamp sets this time. The River Raft set is a new release for this month and Pirate Birdie is an older set. As soon as I saw the raft, I wanted to use this birdie. Using my image software, I combined the raft and sail from River Raft and the birdie and chest from Pirate Birdie. I did a horizontal flip on the chest so it was facing the other way. I printed it on white card stock and colored it with Copic markers (bird - B32, B34, B37; beak & foot - YR20, YR23; raft - E42, E84, E87; sail - E40, E42; hat, patch & chest - C2, C5, C9). I used the clear Sakura glitter pen on the corners of the chest and the hook. I printed the digital designer paper that comes with this set and mounted it on navy card stock and then a white card stock base. The image and sentiment were distressed with blue ink and mounted on navy card stock. I added clear square crystals, a red round crystal and 11 medium and small round gold crystals and then a little string of pearls in and on the chest. Here is a picture of the River Raft set:
