Christmas Penguins Card (Crafty Creations Challenges #298)

Hi everyone :-D 

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges.

Our theme for this fortnight is #298 - It Takes Two. Use an image with two flowers, people, animals. birds... or two something on your project.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Beccy´s Place, with an awesome prize for our random winner: 3 digital images.

For this challenge I made this Christmas Penguins Card, using our sponsor's adorable digital image 'Finn and Molly'.

I printed the image on a white watercoloring paper and colored it in watercoloring technique, using Stabilo pens (markers), fine brush and water. I learned that from a great video tutorial by Julia Altermann, how to watercolor using inexpensive Stabilo pens.

Inspired with amazing work by Alice Wertz of Alice's Little Wonderland, I made a layout for this card. I glued designer papers and image on a card base.

Card dimensions are 107 mm x 139 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").
