Penguin Rainy Day

Hey!! Hello there! It is Release Day at Whimsy Stamps for new Digital products! I have "Penguin Rainy Day" to show you today.  I printed it atop the beautiful digi paper, "April Showers" by Tracy Wray.  I reduced the boldness of the lines so that they were very faint (they call that the "no-lines" look!).  I coloured the image with the following Copic markers: 
Blacks: C2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, Blender 0
Yellows: Y13, 15, 19, 26, V93, 95
Duck: Y04, E40, V91, BV20
Whites: E40, V91, BV20
Umbrella: RV42, 32, V91
Beaks and duck feet: YR12, 21, 14, 27
Water puddle: BG0000, 000, YR21, Y13, C2
I really like the way the image pops when it is printed atop the digi paper! I want to do this method again for sure. 
The sentiment is from Tracy's Spring Mix Sentiments, also digital. Here is the full card:

  2. Oh my goodness Crissy, this is one of my all-time favorite cards! It goes without saying that your coloring is always phenomenal but this is just off the chart! And Tracy's paper and sentiment were the perfect choices for the "feel" of this card. I LOVE this! :)

  3. Hello Crissy!
    I am trying to print my image out on the spring papers like you did. But...I can't make my image transparent to insert it. It's really been forever that I've done it, and I was hoping you might have some spare time and tell me how to? Otherwise, my image prints with the white background on the spring paper.
    Thank you so much! I think I have every single penguin you've done! I just colored the Penguin Beach Chair, it is so adorable!

    1. I figured out that the .png file will let me insert it and the background will be transparent.
