Crafts Galore Encore: Holiday Penguins


This is my third post today. The first one is here; the second is here.

Today sees that start of a new challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

The theme is always 'Anything Goes' and you can enter 3 different projects The challenge runs all month until mid day (GMT) 29th November.

Jan's Digi Stamps is kindly sponsoring this month's challenge.

Here is a card I made with Brighten The Holidays

Isn't this such a cute image - penguins in a tangle with their Christmas fairy lights.
 I coloured the image with Copic markers and cut it to fit inside a black die cut mat made with Lawn Fawns nesting dies. As it is Christmas card, I added a gold mat then backed it onto red texture card. I stamped the string of fairy lights which was a free PaperArtsy stamp that I received with a purchase from my favourite online craft shop, Stampers Grove. I coloured the lights with Copics and fussy cut it for my embellishment. The lovely sentiment is from the Brighten the Holidays digi set

Many thanks to Jan's Digi Stamps for sponsoring the challenge.

Please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DT's wonderful designs.
