You Make Me Smile

Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created using one of the new sets from the Alley Way Stamps August release, Penguins on Parade.

To create my card, I started with a piece of hexagon patterned paper, and die cut a circle from the center.  A piece of polka dot patterned paper was adhered to a white card base, then the die cut patterned paper was adhered on top with pop dots.  Next, I stamped the penguin image, cat ears and tail from Penguins on Parade, then colored them in with watercolor pencils.  

I then stamped the bird feather image in the set to create the flower, and colored it with watercolor pencils.  The sentiment from Speak Easy was stamped in Versafine ink onto a piece of gray patterned paper, trimmed with a banner end and adhered to the card front.  Next, I fussy cut the cat and flower, adhered them together and drew on whiskers.  To finish up, I adhered the cat to the card base with pop dots, embellished with green enamel dots and added some Winks of Stella to the flower.


Have a great one!
