Playful Penguins - CASE Myself!

Hello and welcome to another Stamp n' Hop blog hop.  This month we have been asked to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of our own projects - how much fun is that?


I knew straight away which project I was going to CASE - one I made in September using a stamp set called Playful Penguins.  You can see my original post HERE.

I think this penguin is definitely male don't you?  So I decided I was going to make a girly version of my project!

Boy was this tricker that I thought it would be!  I am most definitely not a 'pink' person, I never wear the colour and don't like frills at all.

I decided to use Melon Mambo for the background which I created with an Aqua Painter and ink squeezed into the lid of the ink pad.  I used Smoky Slate ink (2nd generation) to stamp a something for the penguin to stand on.

I then stamped out a penguin with Memento ink and fussy cut it out.

I went a bit mad then and coloured the penguin with the Aqua Painter and Melon Mambo ink.   In another fit of madness I added some Wink of Stella!

To complete the madness I added a necklace - I mean really, what was I thinking?

I added some metallic silver thread behind the penguin and adhered to the card base with dimensionals.

I also added some of the lovely Snowflake Sequins, adhered with the Shimmery Crystal Effects.

Here is the finished card - at this point I realised I had no room for a sentiment.

So of course, I started my project again!

This time I turned the note card to landscape and recreated my watercolor background.

As above, I stamped and fussy a penguin.

However, this time I did not colour her tummy and I added a pearl necklace instead.  Does she remind you of a certain craftyducky I wonder?

I added some WInk of Stella to the shaded areas but of course, as usual, it is proving difficult to photograph.  I promise it looks very sparkly in real life!

Anyway here is the finished card, with my original project, complete with a sentiment this time!

I won't waste my first project - I know a little girl who loves all things pink so it will go to a good home.  Details of the products used for my project can be found below.

Next up is Sandra, I can't wait to see which project she has decided to CASE!
