Valentine Penguins - Ink Blending Sky

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Valentine Penguins. Yes, it's January but I didn't intend to make a valentine's card at all. I actually don't like the commercial aspect behind the holiday and firmly believe that you should always show people you care about them year round.


For this card, I'm using some atelier inks to do ink blending. They blend so smoothly and I wanted a non-traditional colored sky (mainly because one of my goals for the year is to go outside my comfort zone). I used Bee Sting Yellow, Sweet Petunia Pink and Peacock Blue with a splatter of water and Perfect Pearls all over. Also, I wanted to add an element of the sky, so I used the clouds border die, cutting pieces of white cardstock and vellum to give it a bit of interest.



I colored up the two penguins with copic markers and fussy cut them out. I tend to really like the no white outline look but you definitely can use the dies or cut with an outline too. They are pretty simple images to cut (one of the reasons why I love to mask and fussy cut with Gerda Steiner sets).

The card came together really nicely and I am so happy with how it turned out since, it's not specifically a valentine's day card but a card to tell someone they are loved.



Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
