Hi and welcome! Today I'm thrilled to be a Guest Designer this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog. The challenge is Typically Tropical and as I'm right in the middle of winter, it was nice to create something with a warm feel :)
And here's my card:
I used the adorable Penguins in Paradise set and created a little scene after sponging some "sand" and "sea" onto a white panel. I used Copics for my coloring and also added some white gel pen dots on his towel. The palm tree in the foreground as well as the penguin are popped up on foam tape. For a different look, I positioned the panel in the bottom right hand corner of the card base.
Thanks for visiting! And thanks to the team at City Crafter for inviting me to join them this week. Head on over and check out the challenge and the fabulous inspiration from the DT.
I'm also entering this into the Tropical theme at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge and the stash challenge at AAA Cards. My absolute favorite thing to use is my Copic marker collection, followed closely by my distress inks - both of which are featured here.
