My Favorite Things - July Release - Countdown Day 4

It's Countdown Day 4 at My Favorite Things and I'm previewing a new Stacey Yacula illustrated stamp set called Penguin Party in my card today.

Also featured in this card is the new Watercolor Wash Rectangle Stencil and that is where my card began.  I created a panel measuring 4 inches x 5 1/4 inches and adhered the stencil over the top of it and blended the background in a wash of pastels.   Distress Oxides in Speckled Egg, Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade were used.   This panel was backed with white craft foam and adhered to a full size A2 panel which in turn was applied to the card base I'd already prepared.

I popped the card in my Misti and stamped the musical notes and sentiment.

On Copic friendly cardstock I stamped the images I was going to use from the stamp set and I coloured them with Copic markers.

Penguins W00, W1, W3, W4, W5 and W6 with Y00, Y38 and YR04
Cheeks R000, R00 and R21
Pinks RV10, RV02, RV04
Yellows Y06, Y15

I die cut the images using the coordinating die-namics and highlighted a few points with a white gel pen.

All the elements were backed with foam tape and applied to the scene and for a finishing touch I added Nuvo Glitter Gloss to the balloon and yellow ribbon on the gift box together with a touch on the fluffy topper on each of their party hats.

I hope you like my card today, I love to hear from you so please leave me your comments and questions.
