I have another project to share with you this morning using the very adorable Penguin Agenda stamps set from Penguin Palace Stamps. I combined these polar images with the smaller detail stamps from Summer Sunshine and Let’s Catch Up, to create this long Slimline scene.
I cut my main image panel from Bristol smooth cardstock, the size is 8 x 3.25. Then using my new blender brushes from Taylored Expressions, I inkblended the panel using tumbled glass, salty ocean, and faded jeans. I splattered with clean water, white opaque ink and a blue metallic ink that has some shimmer to it.
While that dried completely, I stamped and colored my images using my Tonic Stamp Platform to achive crisp dark lines, and Copic markers. I highlighted my images with a white gel pen then cut them out with the coordinating dies. I didn’t have the dies to Let’s Catch Up but as I was fussy cutting I went online and ordered them. I always love to have the matching dies to my sets and I find that I use the sets a lot more than I do stamps that I don’t have the dies for.
Once everything was ready to assemble I played with placement and glued down some of the smaller accessories over some existing images (like the phone and starfish). I also used an X-acto knife to cut around the hands of the far left penguin, and placed a shell on top of the scissors and paper he originally held. I used a variety of adhesives to glue everything down. I heat embossed my sentiment across the top before mounting two layers of patterned paper under my panel. Then I used Scor Tape to mount it to my card base. The final dimensions of the card are 8.5 x 3.5
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you visit again.
