Anything Christmas Goes - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 8th of December, 2017

This is the last challenge at Winter Wonderland for 2017 and we are hosted by the lovely Helen.
The theme that she has chosen is:
"Anything Christmas Goes"

a nice and easy challenge for this time of year!

Please remember as the theme says it is Christmas Projects only!

So here is my card:

Here is a close up of the colouring:

I have used Jingle Penguins from our wonderful sponsor: Pink Gem Designs.

Pink Gem Designs is based in Stourport on Severn, Worcestershire UK.
We began trading in Nov. 2008 to design cute and whimsical craft stamps in clear polymer. As digi products became more popular Pink Gem Designs also started to produce digital stamps/Card Topper Kits and other digital products such as downloadable papers, clip art etc.

I digitally printed Jingle Penguins stamp on X-Press It paper, cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo and then coloured it with the following Copics markers:
  • black - C3, C5, C7
  • white - 0, C00, C0, C1
  • green - YG03, YG07, YG09, clear Wink of Stella
  • red - R22, R27, R29, clear Wink of Stella
  • orange feet - YR04, YR09
  • orange beak - YR09
  • gold bells - Y26, Y28, gold Wink of Stella, clear Wink of Stella
  • string holding bells - brown Wink of Stella
  • background - B0000, B000, B00
I have then stamped the sentiment "Christmas Cheer and a very Happy New Year" from Heaven & Nature Sing by the lovely Marcella from Power Poppy using my MISTI and Cottage Ivy Memento ink on to a square white card from Envelope Solutions.
I have adhered three strips of washi tape from Manzawa (I think I bought it from Envelope Solutions!) on to the card and then used double sided tape to adhere the coloured Jingle Penguins image to the card.
