Penguin Thinking Of You

One more card before the Big Day.  This image is my Christmas Present for members of the Whimsy Stamps And Inspiration Facebook Group! It is called, "Penguin Thinking Of You" and it is only free for a short time (until Jan 8th). If you want this image you'll need to get a Facebook account and then click on this link to go pick it up from the files section of that page. 
I used the following Copics to colour Penguin Thinking Of You: 
Blacks - N0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8. 
Feet: YR14, 23, 27, E39
Beak and hat - E50, 51, 53, 55
Sky background - first, BG23, then BG11 on top.
Snow - BV20, B000, E70 - white of penguin similar, except no BV20, and I had a light yellow Prismacolour marker in there too (could use E50).
Lots of Snow Tex and glass glitter on this one too.  I think I'm a bit obsessed with that stuff! 
Found the tiny pine cones in my front yard.  They're so cute! 
Thanks for looking!

Snow Fun

My daughters both said, any card with penguins will do for their Christmas card this year.  So, this is one of them.  
I coloured the image with Copic markers. I like to show dimension on white objects using a varied range of light greys and colours.  I used BV20, B91, E50, C1 and C2, BG90 and BG70 on both the polar bear fur and on the snowy ground (no E50 on the snow though). 
Image is a rubber one called Snow Fun and it is found here: 
Snowflake Dies from Whimsy as well as the sentiment, which is from the rubber set, "Christmas Moments". 
We're getting down to the wire! Christmas is coming!!
