Jill here, and this week I’ve got a group of Mama elephant’s adorable Arctic Penguins...
playfully slipping and sliding down an icy slope, struggling to stay upright on their little sweet skates!
I LOVE these precious little penguins, in real life and in magical Mama Elephant land. Penguins are pretty amazing animals. As if the whole ‘partners for life’, thing isn’t the most endearing quality in the universe you only have to watch their little waddle to fall head over heals in love with them, and I think these Mama Elephant illustrations capture their playful personalities perfectly.
And to top it all...the images are black & white so anything you do with them saves you a TON of time on colouring and means you can whip up your designs in next to no time!
I wanted my card to look like a slippery snow covered slope with all the little penguins skating down it. You get so many different designs of penguins all doing different things in different directions I thought it would look really cute - like they are all battling to keep their balance as they have their fun.
I started by stamping out my penguins and fussy cutting, adding a wee dash of red to their skates and orange to their beaks for the teeniest splash of colour. I made my slopes by cutting Mama Elephant’s Landscape Trio Border Dies and lightly ink blending blue ink behind. I used foam tape to elevate my slopes and adhered my party of penguins behind. I added a slick of glitter across the edges of my die cuts to add a little sparkle to my snow. My sentiment is from Mama Elephant’s Polar pals and is stamped straight onto my card.
I finished by adding a scattering of sparky sequins and cutting my panel using Lawn Fawn’s Cross Stitched Rectangle, mounting onto a card blank, and there you have it!
A very quick easy peasy parade of precious penguins!
I really hope you like it.
As always, everything I used is linked below.
See you next week.
