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.

For Christ's glory and much love,
Jasmine

Aren't they so sweet?!
 
I had some fun with watercolor, stenciling and inks to create a happy background for them. I started by die-cutting a piece of watercolor cardstock and taping off 1/4" on all sides. I then did a wash of Daniel Smith Quinacridone Gold starting from the top and watering down the color towards the bottom...
