A Pile of Penquins

There is something about penguins that just make me smile. My friend Miranda makes the most awesome creations including lens pets (for your camera) and sock monsters.

She makes all kinds of fun and colorful creatures in addition to penquins. Check out her Etsy shop here, Mandee Franee Designs.  And here is her Facebook page for tons of colorful inspiration.

Now on to my own penquins. This Stampavie Pile of Penquins image just makes me smile. Since they are piling on to create a Christmas tree shape it seemed natural to use some Christmas tree paper. I already had the paper picked out and the image colored and as a consequence I have this week's Sketch for You To Try much earlier than I normally do. 

Products: Stampavie stamp, Echo Park dp, PTI cs and felt, Creative Imaginations epoxy sticker, Doodlebug jewel, Flower Soft, Ranger Stickles, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic Markers

Copics: Penguins-C3, C5, C7, E0000, R20, E50, Y15, Y17; Scarves-B0000, B000, B01; RV10,  RV23, RV13, YG21, YG23, YG25, Star-Y11, Y15
