Baby Penguin

Hello there, today I am back with another card using some of the new products from the Hero Arts Wintertime Fun release. I just couldn't resist this Baby Penguin, I mean, adorable, right?! :)

I started off by stamping the penguin on to white cardstock. I used the ink colours from the Ink & Emboss Penguin set. The colours are Soft Granite, Charcoal and Black. To help layer them up, I used a stamp positioner. I cut him out using the coordinating Frame Cut. To create a background for him, I took a circle die and cut this with Bristol cardstock. I then blended on various shades of Distress Ink to create a sky look. I spritzed this with a solution of Perfect Pearls and water and set aside to dry.
Once dry, I took the piece and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Snowflake Confetti die. The piece was adhered flat to a card base made from the new Decorative Woodgrain Cardstock. I then took the sentiment from the set, stamped this with Versamark Ink on to a piece of black cardstock, applied white embossing powder and then heat set. I added the penguin to the card with foam tape as well as the sentiment piece. To finish off, I added a few Frost Sequins with Multi Medium Matte.

I know that woodgrain has nothing to do with Winter but I thought it was too beautiful not to use! :) Thanks so much for popping by to see me today. I hope you have a great rest of the day and a fabulous weekend!
