Happy New Year

I didn't make many Christmas cards this year. I decided instead to do the french tradition (Thanks Coco for the idea) and make New Years cards, and used these adorable Grumpy Penguins from Katzelkraft, aren't they delightful :

The penguins were stamped in black memento ink and their beaks coloured with copics. I then sponged the background with distress inks and used the cloud stamp by Katzelkraft for the ground. What a great snowy/icy ground effect it gives. Final step was to use black marker for the eyes and add glass glitter to the ground. I matted the card front onto white card stock. The 'Happy New Year' sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.

As you can see, I made quite a few of these cards :

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year.
I hope 2016 is a good one for you xxx
