Santa Penguin



Hi everyone.  Today's card is for a couple of challenges at SCS ... first Inspiration Challenge (IC361 - Artful Home).  I saw this adorable ornament and knew that I had a very similar stamp.  This is also for the Ways To Use It Challenge (WT399 - no fall colors) ... I hope the red Santa hat isn't cheating :)

This adorable Santa Penguin is a digital stamp from Bugaboo.  I colored in his body and santa hat with copics ... and paper pieced his scarf.  I added dazzling diamonds to the snow using Crystal Effects, more Crystal Effects on the berries and penguin's nose ... and added some white embossing paste to give texture to the hat cuff and pom-pom.  You can see more details in the close-up photo below.





Stamps:  Poppi Xmas Snowballs (Bugaboo); Snowman Sayings (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Old Olive Snowflake DP (SU! - retired)
Ink:  Basic Black and Basic Gray SWM (SU!); Copics:  R29, R59 (hat); R39, R59 (berries); YG95, YG99 (holly leaves); YR24 (nose)
Accessories & Tools:  Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds, White Embossing Paste, White gel pen, glue and adhesives
