Penguin selfie


Another sneak peek today of one of the cute new penguin images from LOTV. These trios are so versatile as you can choose to use 1,2 or all 3 on a card. I loved the idea of a selfie so used an MFT polaroid frame die. The image has been coloured with Copics and I used a new dark pink wink of stella pen for the for on the hat. The papers are some old Dovecraft Christmas fancy ones and the ribbon is one from last years Crafty Ribbons range. The snowflakes were cut from glitter card using a Memory Box and Simon Says dies. The snow was made using a pearl pen.

Challenges
