I had fun with another glowing scene! I combined the lantern from Make It Crafty (a digital) with my Penguin Carollers, also digital, but from Whimsy Stamps. Then I printed the image on Hammermill 100 lb paper. Coloured with Copics as a base, and then went over parts of the image with coloured pencil. I used Distress ink oxides to sponge over the sky, over the base I had put down. It smoothed out the gradations. Also used Gelatos to give more of a warm glow under the lamp. White gel pen to doodle the snowy sky - favourite part! Mounted on a sheet from one of Whimsy's Christmas paper packs (digital). Thanks for looking!

Oh, sweet Crissy, this is GORGEOUS and ADORABLE! Look at those singing penguins (who would have guessed they could sing...hehe!). Your coloring is absolutely out of this world, and I love the scene and the beautiful lamp shining their way! And what a beautiful snowy sky! Oh, I think 2018 is going to be the year I really focus on my coloring skills. Can I be you when I grow up? LOL! Thanks for sharing this darling card, Crissy! I love it, and I love the DP mat! Hugs and love! xoxo

Oh my, Crissy!! Another marvelous light scene with remarkable, caroling penguins!! They are colored so masterfully. I love the long, beautiful Santa hat and gorgeous earmuffs. The swirly sky is fantastic (do you use a gel pen for that?). The lantern shining so brightly and casting light on the penguins is awesome. Lastly, your snow is remarkable!! What a masterpiece, sweet Crissy!
