Welcome to my mid month inspirational project for CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra. You may join us with any seasonal creation, we are open for entries until the last day of the month so come and show us what you've made.
We are sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps, I have used Penguin Joy for this card. He was printed on white card ready for colouring, but before I did that I printed another copy on plain paper and cut it as a mask. I wanted to colour my background using a stencil so I needed to cover the penguin and the letters. I put the paper mask over the image and then lay the stencil, Memory Box Brilliant, over that before colouring with Distress Inks.
Once the inks were dry I coloured the letters and penguin with alcohol markers and added some sparkling highlights with Cosmic Shimmer Aqua Twinkles. The image panel is then mounted on a black mat layer before going on to a red card blank.
I would like to enter my penguin in the following challenges:
