Little Penguins

I got some new stamps in the mail today and they are so cute! They are my first set of CC Designs stamps from All That Scraps. They come already mounted on EZ Foam and with a cd case for storage. These little penguins are so adorable! Of course, I had to ink one of them up right away. I cut the mat for my image first using my nestabilities in my cuttlebug. Then, I stamped the penguin and the Papertrey sentiment in Brillance Graphite ink. I heat set the ink and then used copics to color the penguin and balloons. I used the colorless blender to take a little color away from the penguin's tummy, balloon, and beak to add a little dimension. In the photo, the red balloon looks a little splotchy, but it is a reflection from the glaze I put on the balloons and the penguin's beak. Remember, you can always click on the photos if you want a bigger image so you can see details better.

Recipe:
Stamps: CC Designs. Papertrey
Patterned Paper: JoAnn's (it was a huge stack of paper, but not DCWV)
Ribbon: May Arts
Tools: copics, nestabilities, dimensional glaze
