Penguins aren't just for Christmas

Here's a  picture I made as a Christmas present for a 3 year old. I was with his mum recently and she was looking at a print for his bedroom but it cost too much for her to buy at that time. The print she looked at had a penguin , a balloon and the words 'Follow your Dreams' - so I decided to CASE it and make my own version.

The penguin is a digital stamp from A Day for Daisies. The original image is holding a balloon but I wanted a bigger, rounder balloon so I googled for a balloon image and traced it in Silhouette studio. After arranging the outline images and words, I printed them onto linen effect card. I lightly coloured the penguin. I cut the balloon out of patterned paper, inked the edges and pieced it onto the picture. I cut a mount frame and then put it all into a clip-frame.

How wonderful! Great idea to make a piece of artwork as a gift. It turned out great. I am going to save this idea for later use. I have been meaning to make more non-card items with stamps and paper.
