Penguin Presents

I have a Christmas card to share today, that features an old Lili of the Valley penguin stamp called 'Present Pile'. I stamped it on to watercolour paper, then coloured the image using watercolour pencils. For the background, I used lots of snippets of papers from the 'Fresh Florals' pad by Craft Sensations, and the 'Happy Colours' pad from The Works...distressing the edges, and adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Christmas Critters' set by Penny Black.

Challenges for this card:

Absolutely adorable Penguin with his presents - and excellent use of background snippets too.

Such a sweet card Helen - LOVE the background and how you matched it so well to the adorable image colouring - or perhaps the other way round!
