Penny Black Mixed Media Winter Penguins Tag

tag 1
 Hello and welcome back to my week-long Penny Black stamps special, where I'm celebrating my first ever GD spot with Penny Black & More.  Thank you all for your support and lovely comments this week - it means so much to me!
tag 2
For  my background I started with a puddle of Frayed Burlap, then a light dip of Evergreen Bough Distress inks.  Then I stamped Music Background in Frayed Burlap DI and splattered some white diluted gesso.  I love this combination of inks!!!
tag 3
I stamped Cheerful Giving Penguins and layered onto some torn aqua vellum and torn inky paper, with a little Stickles glitter and some cheese cloth.
tag 4
I wanted to do something a little unusual for the topper here.  I accordion folded a piece of mesh ribbon and hot glued it to a glittered die cut snowflake.  Then I layered a punched inky paper snowflake and a beaded snowflake.  It is so much fun in person!  A couple more acrylic snowflakes and some lace finished it off.  I hope you can see how I took these cute penguins from my last card and turned them into a great focal point for a mixed media project.

This is fantastic Autumn!! Great combination of colours evergreen bough and frayed burlap ... they are fantastic together. Love your sweet little penguins ... they just pop on the cheesecloth and love the added sparkle with the stickles at their feet. :) The topper is amazing with the layers of beautiful snowflakes. Thanks so much for sharing another one of your tags at my tag event.
