OWH VCMP #14 and #8


Challenge #14 was a winter love card. "Warm winter wishes" counts, right? I got this retired set off eBay a couple weeks ago and just started playing with it tonight. That Eskimo stumps me. Black's too harsh, colors look weird. What color do I stamp him? Do I stamp multiple colors and hope to piece it together? Anyone have any suggestions?

For now, I stamped in gray because it was neither too harsh nor a odd non-human color (just imagine him in teal- yikes). The penguin is really cute and I know I'll use him more. I used the snowflake stamp from the set to jazz up the card base and added some punched snowflakes to highlight the popped sentiment.

I'm also going to count this as my "scene" card for challenge #8 because the penguin, Eskimo, and snowflakes make a scene in my book.

Cards shipped to OWH (as of 9/12/11): 1325

  2. It's a really cute card, and I'd do either a royal blue or bright red coat, since the penguin is already black. I love bright colors! Nice job!
