{PIN}spirational Challenge # 39

Hello Friends!

I have three posts for today, so make sure you catch them all!  Today I am back with another
{PIN}spirationalChallenge.  What is a {PIN}spirational challenge you ask?  Well you look at a picture and get inspired to create something based on that picture.  So your picture this week is a group of penguins.
Our generous sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps!  They provided our adorable images to use this week.
I used the Penguin with a Star image and colored him with my copics.  The paper is all MME Lost and Found collection.  I cut the image out with my Large Oval Spellbinders die and cut another Large Scalloped Oval to layer the image on.  I also used distress ink around the edges of the image to make him stand out a bit.  In addition, I used Dimensional Pearls on the scallops.  The sentiment is by Stampin Up.

Copics Used:
Penguin:  W1, W2, W5, W7, W10
Feet/Nose:  E99, YR24, YR27
Star:  Y11, Y21, Y35
Scarf:  BG13, BG15, BG49

Image:  Bugaboo, Penguin with Star
Sentiment:  Stampin Up
Paper:  Recollections
Dies:  Spellbinders Classic Large Oval & Scalloped Oval
Embellishments:  Adirondack Dimensional Pearls, Stickles
I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Catch the But - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - Winter Wonderland
Fairytale Challenge -Animals & Pets

Come on over and play with us at {PIN}spirationalChallenge!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Blessings until next time…
