Warm Winter Wishes

Karen B. here from The Bald Dragonfly, and it is an absolute pleasure to be guesting for Butterfly Reflections Ink! I've got a clean and simple card for you today-they are my favorite to make-that features one simply adorable dancing penguin.

I am always in need of cards for after Christmas, when it is too late to send out a holiday card. I like to make winter based cards, and this set available in the shop, called Color Layering Baby Penguin from Hero Arts, fills the bill.

I started by masking the penguin image and inking up the front of a card base with blue distress oxide inks, splattering silver watercolor paint from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors. I then stamped the cute little penguin using the Rock Collection of Altenew Inks. I finished the card by stamping some snowflakes and the sentiment onto some paper cut snow hills.

Just a reminder that if you see something that is out of stock at the store, please click the "Put Me On The Waiting List" button so that Vanessa knows you absolutely need this item and can try to order more!
