TAWS post #56 - New Release Blog Hop

Hi Friends!  You should be arriving via Marina's blog.  It's time for this month's awesome Alley Way Blog Hop!  Thanks for coming by and I'm so glad to share my project with you!  Today I'm using the new set called Everyday's A Holiday.  It comes with THE cutest yet basic "costumes" to dress up the adorable penguin in the Penguins on Parade set.
I stamped my image onto good quality 140lb watercolor paper.  I colored it in with my Kurtake watercolors.  I cut him out using my circle Spellbinders and nested him on an assortment of kraft, black and Studio Calico papers.  I stitched my innermost circle to anchor the image.

I used a plethora of papers and some black and white ribbon from past month's Studio Calico kits to pull together the entire card.  I stitched around the perimeter purposefully stitching through the ribbon to hold it in place better.  And I like how it looks.  I added some black dots and a bit of flair to balance everything out.

My favorite touch which is hard to photograph is the glossy accents on his goggles!  It makes me giggle every time I see it!

Thanks so much for coming by today!  You're off to N@Ali's blog!

See you next time!

Crafty Hugs!

Love the layering. The penguin kind of looks like he's in the middle of a bulls eye - and he's afraid.
