Penguin Lean On Me

Hi there! Got another one done, yeah! All products are from Whimsy Stamps, the company I draw for on contract, and have enjoyed working with for a little over ten happy years now! 
I used another penguin from the Penguin Lean On Me set, as well as a hat which I fussy cut and pasted on, from the Happy Owlidays  set! I coloured the image with Copics and used a bit of black and grey coloured pencil on the body, and pink on the cheeks to polish it off.  The greeting is chipboard also found at Whimsy
I carefully drew the background in very light pencil lines first, and then coloured it in using some really light Copics - W00, 0, 01, YR30, E40, and some darker greys for the tree trunks and branches - W3, 4 and 5.  I had to not colour where ever I wanted to have snow on the trees.  That was the hard part, saving the white of the paper for my snow. The hat colours are R20, 24, 27, 29, 39. 
I used the Snow Dangle stencil and a red pencil crayon to make the background paper.  
Here is your closeup:
