Hello and welcome to the reminder post for the October Christmas Birds challenge at CAS Christmas.
I couldn’t let this challenge pass by without using my favourite little penguin from now closed down Winnie and Walter (WW)! I paired him with new NBUS sentiment stamp set Naughty and Nice from Scrapbook.com to create this fun card.
A panel was die cut from X-Press It cardstock using A2 Stitched Rectangle Set 1 die from My Favorite Things. Stamped the penguin and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Coloured the image in with Copic Sketch markers and Polychromos pencils
Next, stamped the sentiment onto masking paper to use as a guide to hand cut a thought bubble stencil. Adhered the DIY stencil over the stamped sentiment on the panel and applied SU! Sahara Sand dye ink with a blender brush. Stencilled the three little circles as well using a WW stencil and a detailed blending tool. A warm grey Polychromos pencil was used to add shading to them. Clear shimmer added to the hat brim and pom pom finished off the card.
For more inspirations from my team, head over to the challenge post HERE. The challenge ends on October 24 PST. Thank you for visiting. Have a wonderful day.
