Penguin Candy Cane

I really had fun with this one.  I used my rubber image, Penguin Candy Cane. I love how I didn't have to do much for the papers because the gorgeous digi papers Tracy made really make a card come together quickly. I used papers from A Wintery Glow and Christmas Tidings
I coloured the image with mixed media! I used Copics first, and then in some places I went over with coloured pencils and also gel pens (for the sparkle on the candy cane). Zoe of Make It Crafty got me onto that idea, and she has some videos to show you how to do it. 
The sentiment is also a digi from Christmas Mix 2
Also used from Whimsy: Snowflakes and Poinsettia Dies, and put Snow Tex snow and glitter on them for a nice effect. 
Here'a a list of Copics I used: 
Whites of Penguin: W00, YR30, E70, BG0000, BV20, E40, 41, R30 and blender 0 on the cheeks
Beak and feet: YR30, 12, 14, 16, 27, Y28
Blacks: C00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 5 7, 9
Hood: W00, 1, 2, 4 and fur trim: N0, 1, 2, 3
Candy cane white: YR30, BV20, BG0000
Reds: R30, 32, 35, 14, 27, 39, RV69, 99
Ground: C00, N0, 1, 2, 3, 4
