Slip Sliding To Christmas!

Brrrr the frost and snow are hitting the ground and care needs to be taken underfoot, especially if you are running around like these little penguins!

More Penguin fun

They were created using Penny Blacks Snow Dancer Transparent stamp set, Gansai Tambi Water colours and imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko. Versafine Onyx Black inks.

this was my first try with these new watercolours and I discovered that if I stamped the sentiment
before water colouring I got a cool shadow blurred effect when the paint was added, see the effect here in this version .
Penguin Fun

Hope these quick water colour cards have inspired you to make some last minute cards, hugs Cathy x
