Pick up a Penguin – Card

Hi everyone

This is a really quick post because I want to join in this weeks Craft Barn Challenge.  The theme this week is stencils/masks.

Florence Langley Penguin Card Sept 2015 001AWM
These little guys are so cute.  I have only just purchased this stamp and I already love it.

Basically, all I have done to make this card is to stamp the penguins and placed a paper mask over them.
I colored the background with distress inks.
I then placed a stencil over the whole piece and applied more ink, using the same colors, to create the pattern.
Leaving the paper mask on the penguins, I stamped the script….bit wonky but I am not going to loose any sleep over it.
I then just added the sentiment.

Crafty Individuals stamps used:
CI Alice Palace Penguins CI 392
Uplifting Words CI 258
Word and Wishes CI 438

Thank you for looking

    The penguins are so cute! I must admit they’ve been growing on me and I might succumb soon… Love your background in bright colours.

    Such cute penguins, Flo … and a stunning background … that almost texture-y inking is gorgeous! So happy you could make it along to Bev’s virtual party … lovely to have you there! Hugs, Anita 🙂

    Juicy colours, they suit your penguins. I like the look of that stencil on the background, the swirls tie it all together so well. Love it.

    I love the stamp and one I should add to my collection. Fabulous bright and cheery background. A card that will certainly brighten the recipient’s day.
