Hambo Stamps Penguin Snowball


Are you ready for this week's Hambo Hoedown?!

The challenge is to use felt on your cards along with this cute Hambo Stamps digital Penguin Snowball set or any other Hambo Stamp you may have.  

I knew I had felt I'd stashed somewhere and I found it.  I had a few different colors to choose from and picked this one because if I were a Copic marker I'd be a part of the Blue Green family!  
This cute penguin is colored with Copic markers:

Hat & Scarf - BG53, BG45, BG49
Hat trim, beak & feet - Y13, Y15, Y17
Penguin Black - N3, N5, N7
Snow - G0000

I didn't know if my Die-namics Chevron die would cut through the felt so I tested it out and was very pleased.  I also tried cutting it with my paper trimmer but couldn't get a nice straight cut so I gave up on that idea.  My layout is Operation Write Home's sketch challenge #153 flipped.  

I've been thinking about challenging myself to complete all of the Operation Write Home sketch challenges for 2013...  I know it's a lofty goal, what do you think?

My cardstock choices are Astrobrights Eclipse Black & Galaxy Gold as well as Copic X Press It blending card for the coloring.  I put a full sheet of the Astrobrights Galaxy Gold through my printer to add the sentiment to my card front.  Don't you just love digital stamps!!  The felt came from Papertrey Ink and I used a Die-namics Cheveron die as well as my trusty We R Memory Keepers 1/8th inch Corner Chomper.

Jan your card is super bright and fun, I love the colors you have used, they go great together (looking for colors that match are a constant headache to me) your cards always lift my spirit.
