My first play along is with Merry Monday #141 Christmas Critters. I picked up a few Lawn Fawn stamps duirng my fall visit to California and the critters...well they are so cute.
I die cut this little penguin out of white paper, then 4 times more out of black paper. I stamped him and colored him on the white paper using black ink and colored pencils to which I applied gamsol for blending.
I wanted the little guy to really stand out, and I love giving heft to diecut words, and decided to try the same stacking technique with the penguin. To embellish him I added red and black WOS. I love how it turned out.
I stamped small snowflakes, and the sentiment. Drew in a little ice patch to ground the penguin and added a festive red ribbon and bow to the card front. After looking at the card I decided the opening corners of the card needed to be rounded. This little guy makes me smile and I am sure his recipient next year will too.
Thanks for stopping by!
