Fishing Penguin (Craftin Desert Divas)

Hi everyone, today I want to show you this fun shaker card that I created with a digi stamp from Craftin Desert Divas. I printed the penguin on Neenah Solar White card stock and also printed the fish a couple of times because I wanted to use them as shaker material. I colored the images in with Spectrum Noir markers (penguin: IG6, IG8, IG10 + Blender, IG1, IG2; beak/feet: OR1, OR2, OR3; fishing rod: TN7, TN; fish: LG2, LG3, LG6), except for the scarf that I colord with Copics (R24, R29, R39).

I used a small circle die to cut from a piece of patterned paper from the "Snow Dance Kit" from Create A Smile. I actually did some partial die cutting so I wouldn't get a whole circle. This way it looks like the penguin would be fishing at an ice hole. Currently you aren't able to buy the paper individually but I hope they will make it available at some point. I liked the snowflake patterned paper and used it as a background. Using a small circle die I cut out a circle from the background panel and adhered some acetate behind it.

Using fun foam I created the needed dimension for the shaker material. For the background of the fishing hole I used a scrap paper of mix media paper and applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
To assemble the card I cut a slightly larger piece of the red-and-white striped patterend paper from the same kit by Create A Smile which was slightly larger than the snowflake piece. I adhered the distressed cardstock to it, placed the fish shaker material on top of it and glued the snowflake piece on top. I adhered some fish on the top left side of the fishing hole with some glue dots and the penguin to the right side using 3D foam squares. To finish off the card I applied some Glossy Accents to the beak and feed of the penguin.
