Well it's the 1st day of March and it's Whimsy time. So today I'm sharing one of the new images in the March release, and it's perfect for St Paddy's Day, which is on Saturday 17th March.
This fabulous digital stamp is called 'Penguin Lucky Shamrock' and the fabulous digital paper is part of a collection called 'Distressed Polka Dots' and 'Snowdrops'. All the links to the specific Whimsy products can be found below and the link to the general store is here.
Here's What I Did
In my graphics program I created a shamrock cut out in the polka dot digital paper and placed a pale green pinstriped digital paper behind it so it would show through. Text was added to the top left of the paper, and printed out. the paper was trimmed and added to a black mat, then attached to the card base.
The penguin digi stamp was printed 3 times onto colouring card stock, coloured with Copic pens and fussy cut out. The first penguin was completely cut out and only his feet was coloured in, the 2nd one had his whole body coloured in, and everything was cut out minus his feet; then the 3rd penguin had it's head coloured in and cut out. Everything was then layered up using foam pads and added to the card front.
To complete the card a glossy accents was added to the pint glass and glitter pen added the hat buckle.
