Penguin card

Hello. I hope you are well. The winter chill has suddenly arrived here and I am not a fan of the short cold days.

Today I am sharing a card I made for Downland Crafts featuring Paul the Penguin stamp.

I had the idea in my mind that the image could be a decoration hanging on a Christmas tree so I started with the background.

I selected Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron and blended them on some Bristol card stock to create the green colour.

Next I selected my Gansai Tambi stary colors watercolour paints and chose the yellow gold colour. I Spitzed the pan with water and mixed some paint, then put some on to the edge of an acrylic block. I then took a brush and flicked the paint off the edge of the block to make gold splatters all over the green background.

Once the background was dry I took a pine branch stamp from a Hero Arts Christmas colour layering set. I stamped the image repeatedly over the background.

I then stamped Paul the Penguin on to Xpress it blending card using Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured him using my Copic markers then fussy cut him out.

Next I used a hanging string stamp from the Hero Arts set and curved it on to an acrylic block and stamped it to make the string for the Penguin to hang from, using an embossing ink then sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set it.

To complete the card I attached the Penguin with a tape runner and stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment.

I hope you like the card as much as I do.
