Donna here today with a Christmas card featuring those adorable grumpy penguins….the little penguin looks like he’s been at the sherry again!!
What To Do:
Take a sheet of Strathmore mixed media paper and gesso the whole lot, dry thoroughly.
Next, take your chosen three colours of Gelatos and randomly apply over the page, smearing a bit with your fingers to blend in. I’ve found that without gesso, Gelatos do not blend as well.
Place a Crafters Workshop stencil over the page and with a moist baby wipe start to remove some of the Gelato colours through the stencil to give a faux bleach effect, once again dry thoroughly.
Stamp your penguins and the little Santa hat on thick card with black memento ink and lightly colour with some Spectrum Noir pencils the beaks and bellies, blend with the blending solution and paper stumps for the best effect.
Using the Tim Holtz stencil Christmas stencil, trace through the words Merry Christmas with a black pen onto the background.
Final step is to adhere your penguins to the front of the page, mount onto black card and then white cardstock. Add a little touch of blingy stickles to the little worse for wear penguin and there you have a very Merry Christmas card ;)
