Penguins Welcoming 2023

I had fun coloring the newest free digital image from Gerda Steiner Designs.

I do not make a lot of New Year’s cards. This will go to my swap partner, Michelle. I am participating in a Baker’s Dozen swap at Splitcoast Stampers, which means we swap cards for 13 weeks. This is for week 5.

The image is from Gerda Steiner Designs and it is free: https://gsd-stamps.com/collections/shop-digital-stamps/products/2023-freebie

I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils in Gold and Silver. I did add a bit of orange for the beaks. I came back and used a gold pen quite a bit to make the gold brighter. I used Stickles for the hat and scarfs. I am happy with the card. I think Michelle will like it.

The inside is Stampin Up and The Stamps of Life product. This penguin was colored so I added him.

The colors for this card were from the Color Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. I placed it in the gallery for that challenge. It was selected as the favorite last week.

  1. How totally cute. The penguins are having a lot of fun celebrating the new year. LOVE the inside sentiment. It is so perfect for a New Year’s card.

    1. Thanks! They are fluffy. I made the mistake of adding then die cutting, so they were flattened out. I came back and added again and set it aside to dry.
