There is a new theme challenge up over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week the theme is to create a Non-Traditional Christmas Card. At first I sort of found this to be a rather difficult theme to wrap my mind around, until I saw this older stamp set from Penny Black Stamps. As soon as I saw the penguins, I knew exactly how to play with the non-traditional theme with a little group of rainbow penguins.
I stamped the image out onto black cardstock with white pigment ink, and then colored the penguins in with my colored pencils.
I know that I struggled in the beginning with this theme, but I sort of loved how this card came out in the end! I just love how the colored pencil pops out of the black.
I really can’t wait to see how you play with this week’s fun theme. Until then happy crafting!
