Penguin Scene for Polkadoodles

Hello lovely peeps

Did you catch the new Polkadoodles launch on Create and Craft yesterday of Christmas Stamp Soup? There were some gob-smackingly beautiful makes from Nikky and my teamies. You can catch up with the shows here (2pm)  and here (7pm)

The inspiration card I made was (of course) quirky. The idea behind stamp soup is that you combine a few of the stamps to make your own images, so for instance this set has lots of components to make gorgeous snowflakes. One of the stamps is a snowy window ledge/doorstep/postbox top, but when I was turning it around trying to work out what it was, the first thing that popped into my head was 'penguin'.

So, I stamped up some 'penguins' onto Sheena's Stamping Card, dabbed some Black Memento ink and Fawn Spectrum Aqua Marker onto my craft mat and painted them in with a wet brush.

For the card base I added the paler blue 'Not So Plain Jane' paper from the co-ordinating CD then added some Shabby Blue Frantage embossing powder onto a piece of the darker blue for the sea.

Next I brightened the beige version of the paper in a graphics program and cut out an 'ice-shelf', cliff and igloo.

I added Pumice Stone Distress Ink to the edges and painted in a door and shadow with Black Memento ink on a paintbrush.

I stuck on the penguins with Collall Glue Gel and added a sentiment from the CD along with a couple of die-cut snowflakes.
