Penguin Hugs and Kisses - Whimsie Wednesday Challenge


Since it is Wednesday, that means another new Whimsie Wednesday Challenge on the Whimsie Doodles blog! This week Sheri has challenged to create a card (or other project) using a Hugs & Kisses theme (WWC64). The new Penguin Hugs digi image from Whimsie Doodles was perfect for this challenge.

I wanted to keep my card a bit masculine, so the cardstocks I chose to use were in shades of blue and brown. The image was then colored using the same color scheme, plus a bit of orange. After cutting out the sentiment and rounding the corners, I used a very light tan COPIC marker to color the white cardstock it was printed on. Then, once again, I busted out the sewing machine and used it to do some stitching on the card.


Just the details... (1) colored image with COPICs then hand-cut it out and used dimensionals to adhere it to card, (2) added glitter to the little candies, (3) used a text border strip to stamp across page, (4) machine-stitched on the blue decorative border strip

Challenges used for this card:
