Rainbow Penguins ~ Merry Monday 173

How fun is this challenge for Merry Monday#173!  It really made me think outside the box!  One doesn't usually thing rainbow when thinking about Christmas.  

I love penguins, of course, and I just dug through my OLD stash of stamps and pulled out a few from way back when.....this was one of them.  I bet I purchased it in 1997.  It's called Three Penguins and it's made by Hero Arts.  
 I stamped the image twice, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig and colored the feet and beaks of the penguins orange.  Next I colored the body of each penguin using my alcohol ink markers.  I also added some Dazzling Details to the snow and snowflakes around the penguins. 
The sentiment is from {Happy Scenes}.
I added the main panel to a piece of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper after snipping each left hand corner with the corner rounder punch.  Lastly, I added some white string.
I also stamped a few snowflakes from {Flurry of Wishes} on scrap white, embossed them with Irridescent Ice and punched them out with the Snow Flurry punch.  I scattered them around the background after running it through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling EF.   


Here's a list of all my supplies....
Stamps: Happy Scenes, Flurry of Wishes, Three Penguins by Hero Arts.
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento
Paper: White, Dazzling Diamonds glimmer
Accessories: Iridescent Ice EP, Softly Falling EF, Dazzling Details, Snow Flurry punch, Corner Rounder punch, white string

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
