I am pretty sure penguins are not in the fall forest, but penguins in sweaters seems like a stretch anyway ? That’s called creative craftiness! It’s Bobbi here with another card featuring Jane’s Doodles products. I’m using the following stamp sets:

Sweater Weather


Pumpkin Patch

To create this 5″ X 7″ card, I started with a watercolor background of soft blues and yellows on a 5″ X 7″ watercolor front panel. I also used darker watercolors in rusts, golds, and greens for the ground cover. I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors (48)  and Canson XL Bristol Smooth watercolor paper to create the background. I added birch tree die cuts in white. I used a die by Cottage Cutz for the birch trees. I also used a W2 Copic to create additional, distant (fainter) trees in the background for depth, too.

For the leaves, I used the smaller-sized  leaves in the Thankful set to create the look. I used masks to stamp the pile, stamping front to back to create the bunch. I colored the leaves using: YG95, YG93, YG63, YG61, YR27, YR24, YR21, E59, E57, and E55.

For the penguins, I stamped all three characters and colored the sweaters in teals, oranges and golds – BG49, BG23, BG11, YR68, YR24, Yr27, YR21 and R17. I colored the penguin bodies in cool grays – C7, C5, C3, C1, C0. I added a sweater knit look to the penguin’s sweaters on two of them.

The penguins and leaf pile were added to the scene. I used Scrapbook Adhesives White Foam Squares to attach the penguins to make them stand out. To finish the card front, I added small dots of rust to the sky to look like debris/leaves falling from the trees. Lastly, I added the “woohoo” by stamping it on white cardstock, hand drawing a speech bubble around it and attaching it to the background.
