A tree-o of penguins


Just a reminder that the month long Christmas or Winter challenge at Just Some Lines is still open.To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a digi if you’re picked as part of the Top 3!

I’ve made another simple card by printing the adorable Penguin Oh Christmas Tree by Just Some Lines onto the base ans colouring with Polychromos Pencils blended out.For the star I’ve filled it with white gel pen and drawn a few lines around it before going over it with some shimmer chalk.For the the snowy effect on the tree I’ve traced the edges with dries white PVA sprinkled with Glamour Dust.The greeting is a freebie stamp.A couple of strips of washi tape topped with a star die cut from some pearlescent  cardstock and tied with a little baker’s twine complete the card.
