p p p pick up a penguin

After the WI meeting, I had several stamped Hobby Art penguins over - quite a few of the older members were unable to come to the meeting -  so rather than waste them I decided to make a slider card. I haven't made one of these for quite some time, and this was the first effort - he slides nicely, but doesn't do somersaults, so need to work out why next.
Background was done with distress inks, sponges and the traditional torn paper, and the penguin is attached to 2 pennies with foam pads, one either side of the slit in the card. Did have to make a quick trip to Jane's to get some small round foam pads - they came out of the clearance basket, too!
The card is mounted onto the base with more sticky pads, so the pennies have room to move.
The second card took almost as long in the actual making - the Chocolate Baroque penguins were actually stamped at the same time as the other penguins, but only got coloured in on Wednesday. Background again distress inks, and the mat is some very ancient holographic silver card.
There are a couple of individual penguins and snowmen in this set as well as the stamp I used.
for those quick off the mark, check out the websites, as both Hobby Art and Chocolate Baroque have sale offers  at the moment.
