Christmas Penguin

A friend gave me this Mo Manning/Stamping Bella penguin stamp so I thought I'd color it up for another Christmas card.

I really need to get a 6x6 pad of Xmas paper because the stuff I have is REALLY old and has no matching solid paper.  So, I decided to grab my My Mind's Eye pad and use some non-traditional pinks and browns for this card:

I decided to pop up the scarf, and from the angle I took the shot, you can see under the pop up.  Also - her beak became lost with the scarf popped up - so I ended up removing the pop ups closes to the beak and gluing that portion down to the base.  It looks a whole lot better.

Ms. Penguin is colored with my prismas and gamsol.  It feels like forever since I used them!

Hope you're having a great week so far!!!

Thanks for your visit!

My gosh, how adorable! And what fabulous coloring! I absolutely adore the shading you achieved on Ms. Penguin! The popped up scarf and glittery snow are wonderful, too, and I really like the happy pink papers you used. A fun twist on a holiday card!

I like the non traditional colors and I bet the popped up scarf looks even better irl. And how crossed are your eyes coloring all those little candy canes? Good luck again!
