Next month brings St Patrick's day - The patron saint of Ireland, I've never made a card for this holiday but when The Scrapoholic Candy Store released their latest digi stamps I just couldn't resist Lucky Penguin.
OK I hear you - what has a penguin got to do with St Patrick??? Nothing but you have to admit that he is so adorable!
I just had to color him up and this challenged me as I don't usually use green in my designs but I couldn't avoid it with this little fella
I colored him with Spectrum Noir Markers adding white highlights to give him some depth.
I chose to do a large card for this one and matted an 8x8" base card with Green card. I then chose some shamrock digital papers and again matted these and my image with the same green card. Placing them in a symmetrical design on my base. The added shamrocks are sticker I bought in my local papercraft store which just balanced the image.
Oh and the little fella "adjusted" his sentiment after all he is so much cuter than a duck would have been!
