Christmas in July Challenge at The Crafter’s Cafe

Hey there and welcome. I hope you have a wonderful weekend so far. In today’s post, I’d like to share my DT project    for The Crafter’s Cafe. The theme is Christmas in July, and Polkadoodles as our generous sponsor offers 3 images to one lucky winner, so I really hope you will find some time to join us in the fun.

The adorable image I played with is called Which WayTheo Penguin. For coloring this cutie, I used alcohol markers. After adhering a piece of patterned paper onto my card base, I glued the colored panel directly onto it. As I didn’t want to distract from the sweet image by adding too many embellishments, I just added some white highlights and Crystal Stickles and called it a day.

I hope you like how it turned out, and I really look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge!
