Penguin Palace Challenge #25 – Sketch

Hello and welcome back crafty friends!

Thank you so much to all of those who participated in Challenge #23 & 24! We loved seeing all your stenciled projects over the past month for Challenge #24. Congratulations to our Challenge #23-24 winner, Sasha J, please feel free to grab and display your winner badge which can be found on the righthand column (or at the bottom of the page on mobile)!

Now, onto Penguin Palace Challenge #25! I’m so excited to be sharing inspiration for another fun sketch challenge — remember, you can interpret these however you like; flip, rotate, be creative! Don’t forget to link your projects featuring Penguin Palace stamps below for your chance to win a $25 gift card!

For today’s card, I started by cutting a piece of Cotton Candy Heavyweight Premium Cardstock down to a little bit smaller the 4.25″ x 5.5″ and cut off the bottom 1/3 to create two pieces corresponding to the gray parts of the sketch. On the larger piece, I lightly ink blended using a slightly darker color of dye ink. Then, I used the confetti stamp from the Birthday Wishes stamp set and repeatedly stamped it over the background in a slightly darker color of dye ink to create a tone-on-tone look.

On the smaller piece of cardstock, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the Birthday Wishes stamp set. I glued both pieces of cardstock onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base. Next, I stamped and Copic colored one of the images from the Birthday Wishes stamp set, and cut it out with the coordinating die, adding a few extra diecuts behind for dimension. I adhered my image down to the card-base where the focal element is on the sketch, and finished the card off with some embellishments.

We love seeing your creations and would love for you to join us in this month’s challenge! All you have to do to enter is use the sketch to create a project that features at least one Penguin Palace product as the focal point. Full challenge rules can be found here.

This month’s challenge runs until May 30th at 11:59 PDT. We’ll select a winner to receive a $25 CAD gift certificate to from challenge #25 and #26 which will be announced on July 1st at the beginning of challenge #27!
