¡Hola! Ha pasado ya una semana desde mi última entrada y estoy de vuelta con una tarjeta de Navidad (me hacían falta un par de ellas más) para el reto WSC521 en el blog de MFT.
My card features the Christmas tree and the adorable penguins from the BB Holiday Penguins stamp set, which I hadn’t had the change to use before. I started by stamping the tree with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink on an A2 panel of Copic friendly card stock. I also stamped and heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Bitty Holiday Wishes set in white. Then I masked the tree and went in with Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink and the Drifts & Hills Stencil.
Copic colors used for ESC521
I splattered the background with some diluted white acrylic paint, but it didn’t look like I wanted it to, so I drew some of the falling snow with a gel pen. Next, I went to work on the penguins, which were so fun to color. I kept the color palette simple and besides the grays (W10, W7, W5, W3, W00) and blue greens (BG18, BG15, BG13) for the scarf , I just repeated the same colors that I used for the ornaments; R29, R24, R22, YR27, YR24 and YR21.
After I was done with the coloring, I used the matching dies to die cut the penguins. Then I popped them onto my card with thin foam adhesives. They’re so cute… dancing and enjoying the cold weather. As a last touch , I also drew some falling snow on them.
I forgot to mention that I adhered my panel on a 5 5/8″ x 8 3/4″ (14,3cm x 22,2cm) top fold card base of Smooth White Card Stock. That’s about it!
