Krafty Penguin and Sketchfest Thursday

The penguins set is PERFECT for Christmas or winter themed cards and this card couldn't be more simple. I resized the penguin in Word, printed directly onto a HA kraft notecard and coloured in.  I drew in the snowy ground too.  I wanted a very simple look and I do love colouring on kraft!


Supplies: Image, Sentiment and Notecard - Hero Arts; Coloured pencils - Faber Castell.
And... today's sketch is up at Caardvarks.  Check it out HERE ...
Supplies: PP and journal tablet 'a very good day' - Little Yellow Bicycle and Bazzill; Flowers - Maya Road; 'Have' sticker - Making Memories; corner rounder.
Hope you are playing along...

Lucy, this is my first visit to your blog; I'll be back! Wow, I love the coloring on your penguin card and that kraft base. Great snow mounds, too. Your other card is a perfect CAS for me; simple, graphically pleasing, nice contrast with that black sentiment strip, and the pop of color with the circle. Thanks for sharing!
