Penguin Cheer

I have a lot of friends and family who love penguins so I can never have too many penguin cards on hand. Thankfully High Hopes stamps has lots to choose from! Penguin Earmuffs is perfect for one of the many Christmas cards I will need for the penguin lovers in my life. 
I also used two snowflakes from High Hopes to create my Embossed Ink Resist background for this CAS (clean and simple) card.





I have wanted to try an Embossed Ink Resist background for awhile now so this week I took the time to try it out. After stamping my snowflakes I added my embossing powder and melted them with my heat gun. Next I grabbed some distress inks and did some blending - boy did I get inky! but it was so much fun! 
Next, I coloured this adorable penguin with alcohol markers and hand fussy cut him leaving a thin white edge. It is very hard to see in the picture but his ear muffs are coloured with sparkle pen and are very sparkly in real life - so hard to capture that with a camera. The sentiment is a "verse" and for this one I masked off the sentiment to only show the lines I wanted. It is great to be able to mask a stamp and get different uses out of it isn't it? 
Some matching sparkly gumdrops finish off my CAS card.
