So, you remember these little guys I left you with last time as a teaser?
These are done with Papertrey Ink's Winter Penguin stamps and dies, and I did some Copic coloring to flesh them out a bit. As well all know, I am not the world's best Copic guy, but these are just fine.
Anyway! I used them (or most of them) to make a couple of cards, WITH more Copic coloring.
I made these--
Well, I got to coloring my scene, and well, it just seemed best to me to just do a shadowy look, so the penguins could be the star. Shadows are purple, right? A million songs will tell you that...
After going cuckoo with my purple shadows, I decided that an orange sunset would, you know, give a REASON for all those shadows.
Now try to find any sort of Christmas themed paper that matches, so you can do some layering.
I looked through ALL of my Christmas stacks, through ALL of my NON-Christmas stacks. I was not into making my own on this occasion, and the old, old Stampin' Up DSP wasn't going to cut it. It didn't really match, anyway...
Well, after a search that took a LEAST thirty minutes, and left me nothing but frustrated, I decided that WHITE goes with EVERYTHING. A simple purple card stock matte would be JUST FINE.
Embossing folders to the rescue!
Still in love with Stickles, after all these years...
I think these are appropriate for the Merry Monday Non-Traditional Colors Challenge, as well as the CASology home challenge, and Simon Says Stamps Monday Anything Goes Challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
