Make My Monday #59

 Good Morning Everyone, welcome to a new week.  I hope you all had a good weekend.

So today is the start of a new challenge over at Make My Monday

The theme this fortnight is


So back to playing with those wonderful grumpy penguins, snowy acetate & yep you guessed it Brusho's and Pixie Powders.  Im sure getting my money's worth out of those little pots of colourful magic.  Ive made tag shaped cards.

First i stamped the penguins in black ink and added touches of colour with wink of stella pens and fuzzy cut them out. 

Die cut a white cross stitch tag, which i then layered onto brusho card and cut a small border, then i added this to a white 4x6 top fold card blank and cut the top corners to match the shape of the tag.  I added a strip of snowy acetate on to the tag and added my penguins with glue gel..  

Die cut a large snowflake from brusho card, this i put over hanging the edge of the card.  Stamped Joy hand cut and added with glue gel.  Orange gem to pick up on the colour of the penguins beaks and feet. 

Card 2, similar but different colours with the brusho's 

Card 3, different colour again.

Close up, you can also see the acetate strip better here.  This were left over from my first penguin cards.  

I made a small batch of these.  Ive had great fun with these penguins this year.
