She LOVES penguins so I knew right away my Waddles stamps would come out.
I stamped Waddles with Memento Tuxedo black ink. This stamp only has one balloon with it so I masked it off and re-stamped the balloons. I wanted Waddles to look like he was floating in the sky so he needed more then one balloon. The cloud paper behind will hopefully give the "floating" look as well. The stamp is coloured with alcohol markers (list below) and then fussy cut. I added some pop dots and put him on the card. It's hard to see if the picture but I added Wink of Stella to the tassles on the hat - gotta have a bit of bling somewhere right?!
