Ribbon Frame Penguin

I was honoured that Barbara Gray chose this card to demo on the last Clarity shows on Create and Craft TV.  Here is the step by step again.

Die cut a topper from Clarity stencil card using the 3.5” nested squares die and a mat from dark blue card using the corresponding nested squares picot die.
Cut an aperture into the topper using the middle nested square scallop doodle aperture frame-its die.
Stamp the large individual penguin from the Family of Penguins set into the centre in Black Soot Distress Archival ink.
Colour the penguin in shades of blue using Faber-Castell Polychromos (#144, #151).
Add shading below the penguin with a watercolour pencil, blended out with a watercolour brush pen.
Thread narrow blue ribbon through the decorative aperture frame, finishing at the top with a knot. Mat up the topper.
Add the topper to the front of a 5” x 5” white card blank.
To finish the inside of the card, add the cool Christmas sentiment in the same ink as the penguin and a couple of hearts in blue ink.
