A Penguin in Red


I have been working on Valentines here as they tend to be my biggest seller. I really had a desire to color a penguin red.  You know how you get things in your head... So I colored this sweetie from the Winter Hugs Stamp Set from Sweet n Sassy Stamps.  I am linking him up to Mod Squad Challenge, Something with Wings.  

Isn't he the cutest little guy?!  I love how he turned out.  Once colored with Copics and fussy cut out, I kind of came to a stand still.  I know you all know how it goes when things just don't come together.  After many failed attempts in putting the card together, I came across this scrap piece of paper that already had the heart shape cut out from a long ago project.  And things came together beautifully!  

The sentiment was stamped with IO Black Ink.  The penguin is popped up on foam tape and a few red and black sequins were added for sparkle.  

I am also linking this up to The Male Room for their challenge, 'Animals', and 

The Card Concept- my card is clean and layered; I was inspired by the colors and the winter theme. 

Thanks for stopping by!
