Joyful Penguins by Moira Sutton



DL Card Blank
Sheet of Copy Paper
Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stains – Prima Donna Purple, Hottie Patottie Hot Pink, Sassy Sapphire and Frozen Jack Frost
Die Cut Letters from stash

I fell in love with this stamp set when I first saw it and with Christmas around the corner I wanted to make a slightly tongue in cheek card.

I started spraying the Lindys randomly on a piece of copy paper – I know cheap as chips copy paper, they work brilliantly on it. Then while wet I crumpled it up in a ball giving it a good squeeze, then smoothed it out and left it to dry naturally and cut to size to fit the DL and stuck it on the card blank.

I stamped my birds on white cardstock and cut them out, as there is only 1 little penguin and I wanted more I stamped it 3 times and varied the feather tufts on the top of its head by cutting different “quiffs” and colouring their beaks with different Pitt pens. I also used the Pitt pens to colour beaks and add grey shading around their tummies.

I went all round the edge of the card with Frantage Spoonful to get a nice snowy feel going on and stuck my penguins down. The letters were also glued on with the  Cosmic Shimmer Glue. I thought the Oh Joy, said in a bored voice, would complement the grumpy penguins!
