A Pair Of Penguins

this is my design team card for the last Rudolph Days Challenge of 2020; hopefully you have a nice stash of cards ready to go if you’ve been playing along.

I made a heart easel card featuring these adorable penguins from the Evelin T Designs ‘fun in the snow‘ clear stamp set. I painted with twinkling H2Os on Arches hot press watercolour paper, fussy cut and popped them on foam tape.I sponged the background, splattered with gesso and then added some white dots with a white marker.

I sponged this heart with distress inks too, then heat embossed the sentiment and stacked about eight hearts; to finish it off, I added stickles to the edge and the hat.

on to the gnomes.

while I was commenting for the September Rudolph Days Challenge, I found Carol’s sweet card featuring the Simon Says Stamp lil gnome die; it was the first time I saw him and had to have him.

I thought it would make a quick and easy card but I’ve only got one done so far – all the bits and pieces take a bit of time to assemble. I used the Ellen Hutson tree die over blue card stock that was splattered with white paint and popped the gnome on foam tape.

remember it’s anything goes at Maureen’s Rudolph Days Challenge for a chance to win a fabulous prize; you have until the end of the month to play along.

thanks for popping by.
