Penguin Carollers

   I love penguins and when my daughter was at primary she did a project on them and we learnt a great deal about them, but I don't think these cheerful fellows were on the agenda! This image, coloured using Promarkers, is from Penny Black's stamp 'carolling penguins'. having cut it out I lightly dusted the edges with tumble glass distress ink.
   I matted the paper printed using a House Mouse CD ROM from Joanna Sheen onto white card and then used silver peel offs around the edges. The peel offs were also used round the edge of the image. Finally I stamped the sentiment, which is from the same set of stamps and added some glitter to the pom pom on the penguins' hat.

   I wish to enter this into the following challenges:
