Percy Penguin

Today's challenge at Merry Monday is to use an animal on your Christmas card.  Check out this adorable inspiration photo.



For my card, I went with another digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I've called this fellow Percy the Penguin.



This image was colored before I bought some Xpress-it cardstock, so it's colored onto Shimmery White, which allowed the color to bleed a little.  I used the color on Percy's scarf to determine my color scheme, which is Bermuda Bay and Basic Black.  I also did some stenciling using a Simon Says Stamp stencil called Fallling Snow.  All the Bermuda Bay cardstock was spritzed with some Frost White Shimmer Mist.

A sentiment from Joyous Celebration finishes off the card.

Thanks for visiting.  Pop on over to the Merry Monday blog to check out the rest of the DT inspiration and have a go at the challenge yourself.

Products used:

Stamps:  Mo's Digital Pencil, Joyous Celebration (SU)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Bermuda Bay, Shimmery White, Basic Black
Accessories:  Falling Snow Stencil (SSS), Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste, Black Taffeta Ribbon, Shimmer Mist, Copic Markers

Cheers
Karren
