This card features an adorable penguin freebie designed by Sandra for The Outlawz 9th Birthday Celebration Colouring Challenge (thank you!). I went with a winter holiday card. My goal is to make two cards a month and this is my second, but I hope to make more before the end of the month!
Before printing the free digi, I added alphas to the balloons to spell the word "joy" (Pixel Scrapper). I coloured the image with markers, added Glossy Accents to his eyes, beak, feet, and balloons. I adhered him to a die-cut stitched vellum rectangle (Gina Marie Designs) along with a punched bow.
I created a stencilled background by applying Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide through a Snowfall stencil (Hot off the Press). I added a die-cut snowy landscape (Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes) and adhered the penguin rectangle. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment (STAMPlorations Joy) to coordinate with the joy word on the balloons.
My card design was inspired by Sketch Saturday Week 601:
