CAS Christmas

 Evening all.
Just popping by to join in a few challenges with this cute penguin card.

I needed a few more cards so went down the quick CAS route. 
The girls at G7cardmakers, are playing with clingfilm smooshing. Regular readers will know I like a bit of clingfilm magic so I decided to have a play after watching Strictly this weekend. I made a couple of panels using Brushos and MM paper as I didn't feel like getting my watercolours out. This could have been a mistake as the end result is a little subdued in the effects department. If you look closely there is some patterning in the panel I used for the sky but not as much as I would have liked. Think it was a mix of too much Brusho and MM paper.

Anyway, half the A6 panel serves as a good backdrop to this cute LOTV penguin that was languishing in the bits box. I printed him out with Al's laser printer and it doesn't like Copic friendly card and sheds the ink, so I had to draw a few lines with a fine liner to bring him back to life and fussy cut him out to get rid of the stray ink particles! 
The panel was added to an A6 white top fold note card, a die cut snowy horizon cut using a Marianne die placed over the panel and then the penguin, replacing some lines that were lost when I fussy cut him. A simple sentiment from Uniko completes.
That's it from me for the mo, better get on with Christmas prep!
