Birthday Cheers

Hello there.  I have a summer birthday card using another image I coloured with Copics on day 17 of the Daily Marker coloring challenge last month.



I don’t have the matching die yet, so the penguin was fussy cut out.  Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks were blended through a Leafy Frame stencil on mixed media paper.  It was then spritz with water and die cut out with a Stitched Rectangle.



Cheers’ was die cut out from scraps of white cardstock three times and stacked. It was adhered to black cardstock then fussy cut around to give it a shadow.  Finally, ‘let’s celebrate’ was white heat embossed on a black strip.  The panel was mounted with foam tape on a white top folding card base and Crystal Glaze finished off the card.




Thank you for visiting.  Have a wonderful week!

  4. Such an adorable penguin, Trina! (And you have many more already colored!)
    You gave him the perfect summery background.
    Fantastic job with fussy-cutting, especially the black shadow for the sentiment! If you hadn’t mentioned it, I would have assumed that you used the sentiment shadow die. Hideko xx

  5. I love this penguin with his cheerful cocktail, Trina! The background colors are so cheerful and I love the look of the stenciled frame!
