Life's A Beach!

I have another penguin card today - from my "Life's A Beach" clear polymer set at Whimsy! The sentiment also comes with the set (as well as a few other sentiments, and two other penguins!)
Another Whimsy product I used was the Stitched Border Die.  I love that set, and I've used it so often, and am sure I will use it again!
I coloured the penguin with the following Copics (and one Prismacolour marker)
Blacks: C0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, V99, V20
Whites: Prismacolour marker "Cream", E40, 70, C1
Reds: YR07, YR18, R08, RV00, 02, 04, 19, FRV
Sky: BG10
Sand: E41, 43, 44
Snorkel and mask: B21, BG11, V15, 17, 28

I also used one of my own paper designs from the "Distressed Polka Dots" digital pack. 
A little bit of white gauze around the circle die, and the card was done! 
Thanks for looking!

Penguin Birthday

Hello People!  I have a card to share with you today using the rubber image, "Penguin Birthday" which I illustrated for Whimsy Stamps.  If you've never been to the Whimsy online store, I encourage you to go and check them out.  They also have free stuff available too, in addition, they are offering a monthly free stamp set with purchase of over $75 (American dollars before tax).  
 I was happy to make this card for Splitcoast Stamper's Colour Challenge #CC641
My Splitcoast Stampers Gallery is HERE in case anyone is interested!
I coloured my penguin with the following Copic colours (and one PrismaColour marker!)
Feet and Beak: YR12, 14, 27, E97, 99
Reds: RV00, 02, 04, 19, R20, 21, 14, 24, 27, FRV
Whites: PM Cream, BV20, B000, E40, R30 for blush
Blacks: C0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0
Purple: V20, 22, 25, 29
Background: BG10
The paper is from Whimsy and I used sheets from three separate packs: Poppy Fields, Hot Stuff, and Mint Green Light, all downloadable digital paper which I printed off at home. 
Thanks so much for looking!

Penguin Beach Chair

Hi Folks!
Here is Penguin Beach Chair, one of my new rubber images to kick off Summer! You gotta have some days like this, with your toes in the sand, shades on your face, and just sitting back in a beach chair with a cool drink in your hand, soaking up some rays and listening to the waves! It is a Canadian summer must-do! 
Here are some more of my latest rubber images for summer: 
And here is your close-up for Penguin Beach Chair:

I coloured it with the following Copic and Prismacolour alcohol markers:
Reds: R14, 24, 27, 29, 39
Whites: BV20, B0000, C0, 1, PM Cream, E40
Blacks: C1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 0
Feet and beak: YR12, 14, 24, 27, E97, 99
Cup: BG10, 11, 70
Sand: PM Cream, E40, 31, 43, 44

Blue chair seat: B23, 24, 37
Little umbrella: R20, 21, 22
Sun shades: E13, 09, 0
I used the Brush Script Lower Case die to create the word "happy".  I love that die because I can make any sentiment I want with it! There is also an Upper Case die if you want to capitalize your words.   SO VERSATILE!!! 
I also used some digital paper from Tracy Wray, she makes the most beautiful papers I've ever seen! 
Up Up And Away was one of the packs I used.

Penguin Flies!

Hi Peeps!  It is June the first and that means  it is Release Day over at Whimsy Stamps, where you will see a whole new line-up of digital images, sentiments and papers to choose from! (It also happens to be my birthday, yay!) Today I am showing you one of my latest, "Penguin Flies".  I also used digital paper from Over The Rainbow pack, as well as a sentiment from Various Occasions 2.  All of the paper and images are digital, and I had fun layering them in my Pages program to create a one-layer card!  I also used the "Stitched Clouds" die from Whimsy as well. 
I coloured the image by hand with Copics.  Here is your list: 
Balloons: RV00, 02, 04, 06, 17, 52, 55, 66, V91, 0
Blacks: C1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 0
Whites: Prismacolour Cream, E41, 70, 71, B60, V91, BV20, 0

I wrote a poem for the inside.  Here it is:
