Cute Christmas Penguin

Good evening.
It gets busy on my blog at the beginning of each month as new challenges start, so here is another card to share for the latest one at HLS CAS.

As this is an anything goes challenge this month, I've used one of my Christmas designs using an LOTV penguin as inspiration.
I wanted to use some DP that I had use a while ago but it seems that it had all been used up, so I went and made my own with some DI inking in Chipped Sapphire and a white pastel pencil. I chose pastel pencil as it is wont to smudge and that's exactly what I was looking for here, to represent the stars. I did add some white gel pen where I thought it too soft! The bottom half of the inky panel I masked off to create some snow drifts and depth. The finished panel was added to the back of a white die cut frame and my fussy cut, Copic coloured, penguin was added to one side. The sentiment is part die cut(STAMPlorations) and part stamped (Woodware). The part die cut was popped up on the same die cut in foam and the stamped element added on a banner.
So what will you come up with when you have free rein, just don't forget to keep it CAS!
There's more DT inspiration over at the HLS CAS page.
