Holiday Penguins * MFT Countdown (5)

Hello and welcome to the first day of our MFT October Release Countdown. Only five more days until the release. It is going to be fun and cute as always ;-)

  • I wanted to create a happy little scene with these cute penguins and use the background stamp to add some texture to the snowy shore I had in mind.

  • stamp the background stamp onto watercolor paper with a clear sticky ink, cover it with clear heat embossing powder and melt the powder with your heating tool
  • use the ink smooshing technique to add some turquoise Distress Ink to your watercolor panel
  • let everything dry
  • die cut a rectangle from your panel and glue it to your card base
  • stamp the penguins and color them e.g. with alcohol markers 
  • die cut the penguins using the coordinating dies or fussy cut them
  • heat emboss your sentiment onto colored card stock using white embossing powder
  • die cut the sentiment with a banner die
  • add the sentiment banner to your card
  • adhere the penguins using foam tape
  • die cut three snowflakes from glitter paper and add them to your project

  • heat embossed backgrounds can add a fun touch to your background in combination with Distress Inks
