Funky Fossil Designs New Stamp Preview - October 2019 (Festive Penguins)

I was thrilled to have a play with some brand new stamps from Funky Fossil Designs which will be available to purchase on their site from 19th October 2019.  

Make sure you check back on this blog on the 19th October when I'll be sharing information about a fabulous give away!

I made this card using their new stamp set called "Festive Penguins".

If you have a moment to spare, please do pop over and see the fabulous makes by my Design Team colleagues:

For this card, I started by using Distress Oxide Inks in two blue shades: Chipped Sapphire and Blueprint Sketch through the Funky Fossil "Birch Forest" stencil.

I trimmed the image down then adhered a curved piece of card over the lower section to create a snowscape.  I stamped the "Let It Snow" sentiment using Versafine Clair "Twilight" which is a very dark blue ink.  I added a pale blue area to the left of the sentiment, using Distress Oxide "Tumbled Glass" ink, that the penguin will stand on.

On a separate piece of card, I stamped two images of the penguin.  I coloured the penguin by painting Distress Oxide inks on the hat area of both penguin images.  For the body on one of them I used my Arteza Brush Pens.

I cut out the full image of the coloured penguin and adhered into position over the blue paint washed area on the snow.

I then cut the had around the hat on the second penquin image and adhered it over the hat on the card to give dimension to it.  I added touches of glitter to the hat using a Sakura gelly roll pen.
