Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges where we have a penguin photo challenge theme going
I came up with this card
Straight up I have to 'fess up that the stamp set I used has been in my stash for years without being used and that I have lost the packaging for it so I don't even know where it is from! Well I started by making masks for both penguins and for a snowbank. I stamped the baby penguin first and then applied the mask before stamping the Papa penguin about halfway across it. I then applied the Papa penguin mask and the snowbank mask before stamping and clear embossing the MFT Snowfall background stamp. I inked over the background with 3 colours of distress ink and then removed all the masks and let it dry. I was pleased with how the baby was now cuddled into Papa, and I then cut a stitched rectangle from the panel so I could pop it up on foam pads and add it back in a kind of spotlight technique. To finish it off, I restamped the baby penguin and cut out his little hands and sign to give it a little more dimension, and I then added some glitter to Papa's hat and scarf, and along the snowline.
Why not pop over to the Christmas Card Challenge Blog to see what inspiration my talented Team Mates have to show you, and why not join in with us this time. Remember that our theme is just for inspiration, and you can actually enter any kind of Christmas card.
Thanks for stopping by.
