I'm on the Snowflakes Team at Winter Wonderland and Penguins!

I found out on Friday that I am on the Snowflakes Team at Winter Wonderland! Pretty exciting and cool as it really pushes me to get my Christmas Cards done and to use all the stamps, paints and other really cool crafty stuff that I have collected over the last few years - especially Christmas stuff as that is my favourite time of the year!

There will be a lot more activity on this blog from now on! :) Also, I will add more of my cards to my Etsy shop: JemLou Productions.

So the challenge that is running at the moment on Winter Wonderland is Penguins. You can find all the details as well as some beautiful inspiration from the Icicles Team at the Winter Wonderland blog.

Here is my card for the challenge:

There are two different styles of Penguin, the one in the top left and the one in the bottom right are from Lawn Fawn - Toboggan Together. The one in the top right and the one in the bottom left are from The Greeting Farm - Let it Snow.
The sentiment is also from Let it Snow, as are the hat, bow ties and scarf.
I coloured the background using Copics: BG02, B16, B29 & B69. The snow is texture paste using the Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp! I have used this background before! It is from Kathy at The Daily Marker in one of her colour challenges.

The penguins have been coloured with Copics too:

  • black - N5, N7, N9
  • orange - YR07
  • scarf - R27, YG09
  • red bowtie and hat - R35, R37
  • green bowtie - YG09, G17
I used Ranger Glossy Accents on the orange beaks and clear Wink of Stella pen on the eyes. I also added some Wink of Stella to the tops of the mountains.
The sentiment is stamped in Bamboo Leaves Memento ink.
The white square card is from Envelope Solutions.

Thanks for looking!
