Penguin Hug by Miriam

Hi crafty friends and once again thank you for visiting my card corner. I am so pleased that you are hear and I thank you for your support. Today I am so happy to be back with another design team post for RAM Stamps. Just when you though the images couldn’t get any cuter, I am using the most adorable Penguin Hug stamp. I have been meaning to colour this image for a while now, to me it’s just perfect. There are plenty of design team posts using this image on the RAM Stamps website, so be sure to have a look and gain some more inspiration.

So let’s get started on today’s card. I re-sized and printed the image using my Pixma printer then printed the image onto some cheap printer paper and cut it out to create a mask. I adhered the mask with temporary tape and moved onto the background.

I wanted this card to be very soft in it’s colouring, so I ink blended Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac and Lost Shadow Distress Oxide inks and splattered with white gouache paint. I then removed the mask and coloured this image using Copic markers. For this colouring I have used the following colour combinations –

BV13, 02, 00, W5, 3, 1, 0, 00, YR07, 04, R30, RV00, 000

Once the colouring was complete and dry, I die cut the panel using a dotted rectangle die and adhered it to a top folding card base that measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I then die cut the Merry word die from Mama Elephant three times. Once they were all glued together, I adhered it above the image to complete the card.

That finishes the card for today. I love the soft, gentle colours and hope that it might inspire you to get crafty soon.

Thanks again for visiting……. xx
