Caroling Penguins



   My son is a fan of penguins, so this is a card for him.
   Green music paper from Kaisercraft was matted onto yellow core'dination cardstock and fixed to the base white card. A strip of postage stamps pattern paper, again from Kaisercraft, was also matted onto yellow core'dination cardstock and then fixed to the card. Red peel off stars were stuck onto white card candi which were then glue to the bottom of this strip.
   The main image, from the Penny Black stamp 'caroling penguins', was coloured using Promarkers and cut out using a Spellbinder postage stamp die. Distress ink was applied to the top part of the image before it was removed from the die. After fixing to the card I added frostings to the hats and glitter to the snow.
   Finally a red peel off greeting was added.

   I wish to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - use 3 main colours (red, yellow, green)
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra - anything as long as it's Christmas
   Eureka Stamps - wings and things
   Digi Sketch - for the boys
   Creative Craft2 - anything goes
   Digi Design - show off those colouring skills
