Penguin Pair Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone :o)

Today it's my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles.

I made CAS (clean and simple), Penguin Pair Card, using super cute Jane's Doodles 'Winter Wishes' stamp set.

I'm very satisfied how I stretched this stamp set. I made non Christmas Card, i.e. Wedding Card, with Christmas/Winter Stamp Set. :o)

I removed scarf from original penguin image on both penguins and added snowman's cylinder hat to one penguin. I did this in masking technique.

My intention was to make this pair all in one piece, but after several failures, I decided to stamp each penguin on it's own.

I stamped images on white watercoloring paper and colored them in watercoloring technique, using Stabilo Markers, water and fine brushes. I learned that from a great video tutorial by Julia Altermann, how to watercolor using inexpensive Stabilo pens.

After drying, I fussy cut images and colored edges with black Stabilo marker.

Because I use very thin watercoloring paper and I needed images to be thicker, I glued them on scraps of white cardstock paper, fussy cut them again and colored edges with black Stabilo marker.

Then I glued enamel stickers onto penguins and created bow for her and tie bow for him. Love this! :o)

When I finished my penguin pair, I stuck. What about card layout? Sentiment? Oh, I was trying this and that, and didn't like any. So I left my penguins waiting couple of days.

After couple of days, I decided not to use any sentiment and to make this card clean and simple.

I scored lines directly onto a card base, using my scoring board and created very simple texture on my card.

I wanted penguins to pop up on the card, so I glued 3-D foam behind penguins and placed them on the card.

At the end I embellished the card with arrow enamel stickers matching colors as penguins's bows.

Card dimensions are 101 mm x 126 mm (4" x 5").
