Penguin Dude!

Good morning! I hope most of you were able to enjoy the extra hour that the end of daylight savings time gave us overnight. I'm excited to be sharing an inspiration tag today for Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event! 

For Day 6, some crafty friends and and I are joining Tracey to offer up some tag inspiration for you. Yesterday Tracey, Emily Leiphart, Ardyth Percy-Robb, Natasha Kara, Stephanie Klauk and I got together for a day of fun, food and crafting. I was able to use a stamp set of Steph's and a tag die of Ardyth's to put together this fun tag: 


As I said several times over the course of the afternoon... I LOVE this penguin! A penguin with a little attitude is my favourite kind. I started by die cutting the watercolour tag and adding a sky and his ski tracks with distress inks, as well as spraying it with some shimmer mist. My dude is stamped, embossed, coloured with watercolour markers and die cut as well. After I popped him on his tag base, I had to add glitter to his hat and glossy accents to his goggles. A bit of a close-up: 



If you haven't checked out Tracey's tag event yet, you really should. It's a great motivation to have all your Christmas tags ready before November is even finished... and there are amazing sponsors offering prizes each day! Check out the lineup Tracey has assembled: 



There is a ton of inspiration on offer over the course of the event, so I hope you will join in on the fun! Meanwhile, since I was having a playdate with these friends yesterday, I now have to catch up on Day 5... ;) 

Supplies: Strathmore watercolour cardstock, Bienfang bristol paper, My Favourite Things Chill Wishes stay and die, Versafine onyx black, tumbled glass & shaded lilac distress inks, Hero Arts clear embossing powder, Neat & Tangled Classic Tag 1 die, Zig Clean Colour real brush markers, Creative Imaginations Sparkle Clear shimmer mist, stardust Stickles, Glossy Accents, Offray ribbon, May Arts iridescent twine, Scotch foam tape

Ugh! I SO needed that hour this morning! Boss is away so I was up at 5 but I'd been out to dinner last night. Left at 11pm but it was a 45 minute drive home. Bleh. Needless to say a nap took precedence over crafting today!
That penguin is awesome - so sassy! I'm loving the shiny goggles, the sparkles and the wash of sky behind him. :)
