Guest DT Spot: A Valentine Penguin Shaker with Jasmine Burgess

 Hello and Happy 2018!  I am so excited to be guest designing here on the Gerda Steiner Designs blog today.  They always have such charming and delightful images with excellent quality products.  I was brimming with ideas for these little guys and couldn't wait to play.
Valentine Penguins is one of those versatile sets that can be romantic, but also lends itself to friendly or encouraging.  My first card was inspired by Empire Penguins with the really colorful feathers on their heads.  I wanted to bring lots of color and excitement to the party and alcohol inks are perfect for that.  As I worked, the ideas coalesced into a shaker card and I love how it turned out.  You can also view the video at my YouTube channel here.

GSD Valentine Penguins (supplied to me)

Thanks again to Macy and Gerda for having me and thank you for stopping by.  As always, I'm happy to help if you have any questions and I'd love to know what you think as well.  I hope you have a blessed and joyous 2018.

For Christ's glory and much love,
Jasmine
