Let's Chill

Good morning!  I've got a sweet little penguin to share with you today!

I finally got my hands on this adorable Penguins in Paradise stamp set and thought I'd color one of these cuties up for the latest sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.  I cut a panel of watercolor paper and then used distress inks to watercolor a striped background.  I colored the penguin with copics and cut him out with the coordinating die-namics die.  The sun was diecut using an older die-namics that I think has been discontinued.  I stamped the sentiment and diecut it using the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX.  Then I added a few sequins just to give my card a bit of sparkle.

Copics used:
Penguin - C5, C3, C1, R20, Y38, Y35, Y19
Tube - C3, R46, R24, R22

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week!

Hugs, Anita
