Wild About Penguins

I had just made a holiday card with the penguin from Wild About You yesterday, so when I saw artystamper's penguin card I knew it was the one I'd case for this week's featured stamper challenge.

I changed several things about her card but kept the same general idea. I used the same layout and went with the same blue and black color combination. On my card, I substituted Bashful Blue for the Bazzill blue that was used on the original. I also kept a penguin in the main image but used the one from Wild About You and stamped him twice. At the bottom of the focal image, I substituted eyelets for her brads and moved my sentiment to a circle punch on the side.

In addition to these changes, I also added the Snowflake embossing folder to the Bashful Blue background and Swiss Dots to the Basic Black strip in the middle. The "snow" underneath the penguins was created with white foam paint, and the ribbon is Black Gingham layered on top of Bashful Blue Taffeta.

I'll share my other penguin card in the next few days. Thanks for looking!
