You're The Coolest

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope your week is going well for you.  This is a super busy week for us - our VBS program started on Sunday night and runs through Thursday night so it is full speed ahead around here!  Last night I had the pleasure of being the "leader" of 18 three and four year olds.  I used the world "leader" very loosely...imagine trying to herd cats from one room to another!

So, after a couple cups of coffee and a dose of Aleve this morning, I thought I would finish up a card that I started a couple of days ago.  I used lots of ink and the cutest little penguin ever for this one....

This little guy is seriously cute!

The penguin, palm tree, beach ball and sentiment are all from the new Penguins In Paradise stamp set by My Favorite Things.  I used Blueprints 13 and 21 to create my card mat and the sun. I also used one of the dies to create a mask so that I could ink up my "island".

In the above photo you can see the paper masks I created to ink up my tropical scene. After cutting them out, I just taped them onto my cardstock and inked up each portion using the following inks:

* Water - Simon Says Stamp - Maliblue and Island Blue (gorgeous colors)
* Island - Distress Ink - Brushed Corduroy and Tea Dye
* Sun - Lawn Fawn - Sunflower and Distress Ink - Marmalade

As usual, I was unable to capture the sparkle of my Wink of Stella glitter, but the sun, ball and float all have a nice shine.  I added a few sparkly "coconut" enamel dots from Doodlebug to the palm tree and called it done!

Thanks so much for stopping by today - you really are the coolest!
