Christmas Series 2017 | Day #3 Penguin Celebrates

Happy day! Hope you are having a good day. I have Day #3 in my 2017 Christmas Series to share with you today and it features one of Whimsy Stamps’ signature penguins. This cutie is adorable with his over-sized Santa hat and his heart-shaped candy-canes. I created this with my December Daily Album in mind. I will either add him to one of the 4x6” pockets or create a 6x8” page and use him as the focal point.

I think what makes this image really pop is the background that was created with Distress Inks. Kristina Werner used these exact colors to create a background for one of her cards(you can see it here) and I thought the effect was so stunning that I used her color palette for my penguin. Adding the white dots with a gel pen makes the background extra special and it always amazes me to see what one small detail can do to elevate the entire project.

I had foiled paper in the exact shade of magenta and I think the die-cut word just finishes it off perfectly.
