Penguin Thinking Of You

One more card before the Big Day.  This image is my Christmas Present for members of the Whimsy Stamps And Inspiration Facebook Group! It is called, "Penguin Thinking Of You" and it is only free for a short time (until Jan 8th). If you want this image you'll need to get a Facebook account and then click on this link to go pick it up from the files section of that page. 
I used the following Copics to colour Penguin Thinking Of You: 
Blacks - N0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8. 
Feet: YR14, 23, 27, E39
Beak and hat - E50, 51, 53, 55
Sky background - first, BG23, then BG11 on top.
Snow - BV20, B000, E70 - white of penguin similar, except no BV20, and I had a light yellow Prismacolour marker in there too (could use E50).
Lots of Snow Tex and glass glitter on this one too.  I think I'm a bit obsessed with that stuff! 
Found the tiny pine cones in my front yard.  They're so cute! 
Thanks for looking!

Snow Fun

My daughters both said, any card with penguins will do for their Christmas card this year.  So, this is one of them.  
I coloured the image with Copic markers. I like to show dimension on white objects using a varied range of light greys and colours.  I used BV20, B91, E50, C1 and C2, BG90 and BG70 on both the polar bear fur and on the snowy ground (no E50 on the snow though). 
Image is a rubber one called Snow Fun and it is found here: 
Snowflake Dies from Whimsy as well as the sentiment, which is from the rubber set, "Christmas Moments". 
We're getting down to the wire! Christmas is coming!!

Penguins Party!

Penguins Party - digital image. 
Green paper is also digital, from the Back To School 1 pack. 
Red striped paper is from Christmas Cheer, an actual paper pack. I made the Poinsettia using the ever versatile "Build A Poinsettia" die from Whimsy.  I just love that one! You can make each flower look unique and natural. It even embosses vein lines in the leaves, just by cutting it (no need to do the extra run through with the rubber mat!).  I love my Holly Vine from Whimsy too.  I've used that on just about every Christmas card since I got it a couple years ago.  Sigh... making Christmas cards... I wish it lasted all year long!  I'm having waaaay too much fun! 
"Joy" is a wooden cut - out - can't remember where I got it - I have a pack of different ones.  Got em on a clearance sale one year. 
I coloured the Penguins Party image with Copics. Thanks for looking!  

Penguins Are Present

Hi Peeps! Here is another card using a digi image - "Penguins Are Present".  Coloured with Copic markers - I did the white dots by just not colouring in those areas.  The green dp is my own design from the digital paper pack "I Dream In Christmas". The sentiment is also digital, and it is from a "must have" set at Whimsy called, "Christmas Time Sentiments". (I get nothing from the sale of this set, I just really love it!) It really has most of the sentiments you will need, so you ought to check it out.  Can't beat the price too!

Penguin Light Me Up

Here is Penguin Light Me Up! another newly re-released digital image from Whimsy Stamps. 
I coloured him with Copics and a handful of "other" brands of alcohol markers. The sentiment is also a digital one, which I infused with the red and green colours using Photoshop. You can colour the lines of digital images just as you would be able to stamp a rubber stamp using different inks - the image is still the same, you've simply used colour instead of black.  The green paper is from Whimsy's digital paper, "Back To School 1" pack and the red striped paper is from Whimsy's actual paper pad, "Christmas Cheer".  Thanks for stopping by!
