Back to Reality!

It's the last day of Spring Break for me 😭 and we
just got back from a week in Huatulco Mexico - best place ever!!! I'll
share some pics with you later in the week once I download all my pics.
Back to work tomorrow 😢

I did do some coloring while I was away and today I'm turning them into
cards. This is the first one. It felt a little odd to be coloring a penguin and 
ice cream while sitting beside a pool in 35C weather but I managed :)




One of the first things I did when I got home was look around the internet 
at the stamping world to see what I've missed. I found a lot of beautiful 
cards and some fantastic techniques that I can't wait to try and share 
with you.
Stay tuned for those.

I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and new that I wanted to use 
the penguin for it.
The sentiment was a bit of a stumper for me. I ended up cutting it into 
pieces and sponging the edges with some distress ink from Tim Holtz.

Here's a little tip that makes your fussy cutting look perfect - 
after cutting out your image use a brush end of a black marker
and run it around the edges to give it a more 'finished' look.


Happy Stampin'
