Lee Holland - Christmas Penguin

Hello!! It's almost the end of my working week and I'm very much looking forward to the weekend as it's been mega busy, lots of deadlines to meet and trouble to shoot. Luckily for me this card was made way in advance as it was designed for a Whimsy Stamps feature in a magazine.

The stamp, called Christmas Penguin, is designed by Lee Holland, who does just the most adorable animal drawings, and is part of our new September release.  It's another CAS card, I know, I know, I had to have a long sit down to recover from all the lack of flowers and bows and stuff recently lol.

It's coloured in distress ink markers and I used minimal colours here, you could even use the monochrome with a colour pop technique here, it would work very well.

Colours used were Hickory Smoke, Brushed Corduroy, and Broken China.

I cut him out with a postage stamp die and popped him up on a little foam tape. I didn't ink any edges this time as I wanted to keep it very clean and fresh looking.

The sentiment is from an older Whismy set called Simple Holidays which is sadly now out of stock.

For interest I just added some tiny snowflake dies, topped with a few small gems coloured with Copics to match, some Glamour Dust for sparkle and I layered some Grosgrain and sparkle Sugar Dot ribbon. The ribbons and the lovely papers from the Snow Queen pad are all from The Ribbon Girl.

I hope you like it, I'll be back tomorrow with more from the new release and this one isn't CAS!
