Merry Monday Little Penguin

There's still time to join the Merry Monday challenge since it's been extended for the rest of the month!  We are enjoying all these critters so much that we don't want to stop them coming!


Here's the challenge



There are so many wonderful creations in that gallery.

Even if you don't have time to stamp, do go take a look.

This little guy was in the $1.00 bin at Michael's one day.  I was so excited to find it.  I needed some cards for Luke's and Jack's teachers and thought this one would be perfect.

I stamped him on a piece of Whisper White scrap then stamped and embossed some snowflakes around him using the emboss resist technique to sponge some Broken China Distress Ink.  I sponged some little snowbanks by tearing a sticky note and sponging around it.  I still struggle with my sponging and have trouble getting the color even.  I'm hoping that practice will yield to success.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Penguin (Michaels), Handy Christmas Greetings (Amy R.)
Ink: Whisper White, SU Markers (Basic Black, Real Red, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie), Broken China (Tim Holtz)
Paper:  Whisper White, Real Red
Other: White EP, Polar White Flower Soft, Pom Pom (my stash)

I have especially enjoyed your comments about my Gingerbread Man Person card!  If I find those 2 little rascals, I will snip off a leg, pronto, LOL!  You guys add so much fun to my life!

Thanks for visiting.

Enjoy!
