March of the Penguins

So, at the start of 2015 I planned, as I plan every year, to make two Christmas cards a week every week of the year. And here we are, half way through February, and I've just made my first of the year.

Do you remember the film "March of the Penguins"? It struck me as a rather unusual film to have in cinemas rather than on TV, being a wildlife documentary, but it was very popular, and this little stamp I have of a line of marching penguins always makes me think of it.

I stamped the large penguin and baby first,  then masked it and stamped a line of marching penguins at each side to look as if there's a line of them in the background. The only colour I've used in the whole card is a tiny hint of orange for the beaks, but I've drawn in some very faint lines using Stickles to suggest snow and icebergs.

I'm sharing two photos, because to get the Stickles to show up I had to lose some of the whiteness of the card.
