The new stamps arrived in the post on Saturday, so I thought I'd use one of them - CI-392. Who couldn't love that punky baby penguin?:
Here's the back of the canvas, painted (although as it turned out I didn't need to paint it as I covered it with paper - just goes to show I had no idea what I was going to make when I started this!):
The paper is from the 7 Dots Studio 9th Wave Collection. I just followed the pattern and tore wave borders:
and then added a sort of beachy paper round the top:
Sponge on a bit of extra yellow with Scattered Straw:
and then add more stamping with a Scattered Straw Distress Marker and a text stamp from CI-278:
Use the same set and starfish from CI-272 to stamp round edge in black:
Stamp, colour and cut out your penguins:
Stick them to the canvas:
and then get splatting with white paint (you didn't think you were going to get away without something messy, did you?!):
And, hey presto, there you are:
You could add little embellies at this point, but I decided to leave it as is!
And for those who can't remember, this is what the other side looked like:
Thanks for looking!
PS Please note: I managed not to get any of the splats on the birdie side - quite impressive for me as usually paint goes everywhere!
