HAI Penguin Trio

 Hi there and welcome back to my blog. My September header is a new inhabitant to the yard - actually there are three of them, that I've counted, so far in my pond. Apparently green frogs! Oh happy day! 

I'm having to get all my blog posts scheduled ahead today and tomorrow, as I am leaving for Scotland on Thursday for 2 and a half weeks. Hopefully they will all post as planned!

Today I have a card for the Holly and Ivy Challenge, where as always it is anything goes!

For my card today, I chose to use a big background stamp from Rubber Necker, and the Penguin Trio and coordinating die from Rubbernecker.

Using the Stamp Platform, I stamped the background on red cardstock, with Versafine Clair Tulip Red ink and then heat embossed with Sparkle embossing powder.

I then stamped the penguins in Versafine Clair Morning Mist and heat embossed with Clear Detail.

This was then water colored with my set of watercolor paints.

The image was then die cut with the coordinating die. The background was attached to the same red card base and then the image was popped up with dimensional foam. I added some red and white twine to the card to finish it off.

I hope your like my cheery trio and that I've inspired you to join in the fun of the Challenge!

Till next time!
