Congratulations to sweet Allee (Lynn) on being chosen as today's Featured Stamper! I believe Lynn and I joined SCS around the same time (2005), and she has always encouraged others with her comments and inspired with her fabulous gallery. I chose to case Lynn's terrific one-layer Express Yourself card as inspiration for my February Christmas Card Challenge (CCC) design. Like Lynn, the only thing that wouldn't count for my one-layer design is the penguin's paper-pieced jacket. This fulfilled my 2013 resolution to use my designer papers. It's also the perfect design for mailable cards!!
Things I changed:
3. used liquid applique
4. different sentiment panel shape
I die cut my MFT cloud from a post-it note for my sentiment as well as a mask so I could sponge my sky around the cloud.
I water colored his skates and ear muffs. I used applique for the ear muff and then water colored the Wild Wasabi over it.
