Surfin' Penguin

It's summertime and that means it's time to head out to the beach for some water fun. I had fun creating this card. The stamp set is an old retired one from Stampin' Up! (So if you have a stamp set you've been eyeing and it's on the retiring list, make sure you order it, because once it's gone, it's gone!) My oldest daughter collected penguins a while back so I had these and can't give them up. I stamped him and colored him with Prismacolors and gamsol. The waves are Tempting Turquoise that I cut with a wavy cutter from Creative Memories, then I ran it through the Cuttlebug Swirls folder. The fish are stamped, colored and cut out and on dimensionals. The sentiment is from Sparkle n Sprinkle. For the clouds I used the scallop circle punch and sponged on Tempting Turquoise. Hope you have some time to spend outside this summer and enjoy some water sports!

What a cute card! The penguin is really fun, and (you are so clever) I love the way you created the waves and water.
