Fancy a cuppa?

I really enjoy using the video chat run by Google +. It's a great way for me to visit with my friends or to have video conferences for the magazine I design/write for (www.designedtocolor.com). Today I had fun crafting a card during our meeting--this darling little penguin from Paper Makeup Stamps.

 I stepped away from my Copic markers (can you believe they are going up in price AGAIN?!) and pulled out my watercolor pencils. I just love those. I stamped him in Ancient Page on watercolor paper. I ended up going over his outline with my Memento marker because I wanted it to be darker. Then I cut him out and popped him up on another piece of watercolor paper for added dimension.
His mug and beak were both coated with Glossy Accents and the details on his scarf with Stickles. I doodled the lines around the image layer for some added fun. The inside was stamped with the coordinating sentiment that came with the image and a shadow outline of little Pete.

(I've had this little fella for months--only the 2nd time I've inked him up! Also using hoarded Pixie Pink paper...)
