Cool Penguin Birthday Card

Hello and welcome!  Today, I decided to combine some challenges to make a card type that I sometimes struggle with -- Kid Birthdays!  I think this one turned out really cute!

(Click on photo for larger image.)

I colored the penguin dude with colored pencils.  As a beginner colorist, I enjoy doing the small images -- they aren't nearly as daunting for shading!




Supplies:  Imaginisce Penguin Dude, Mama Elephant Modern Borders, Gina K Happy Birthday to You, Versafine Onyx Black, Hero Arts Shadow ink Mint and Charcoal, Enamel dots, Derwent Coloursoft pencils

I would love to participate in the following challenges:


Thanks so much for stopping by!   I hope you will come back soon!

Heidi, this is such a lovely colour combination, and I can't think of a kid who wouldn't just love this card! Your subtle shading is perfect, and perfectly paired with those bright enamel dots! An effective layout that makes the most of all entered Challenges. Thank you so much for joining us at CASology this week!
