Today is unusual for me, I am actually taking part in the Michael Strong Black and White Blog Hop. With the “Black and White” theme and at least one of Michael’s stamps on the card, what better stamps to use than – Penguins. I and some other members were fortunate to be gifted these stamps by Michael and what better way to show them off.
Hopefully you will have arrived here from Herma Fitche’s blog and would have seen all her beautiful work.
Penguins are a perfect subject for a black and white theme! I have some placemats which have the “Antarctica” theme, with ice peaks and penguins of course, so I decided one would make a great backdrop for Michael’s wonderful new Penguin stamps. Of course, I could only use one and because there was a “party” of penguins on one of the placemats that is the one I chose to print and re-size to fit the card. I then stamped the penguins onto white cardstock, cut them out and using foam mounts added them to the card. So, I hope you like my card.
Please leave comments on all the blogs you visit and if you would like the chance to win some blog candy, also leave comments on Michael’s blog, which you can access through this link where you can also see Michael’s beautiful stamps.
So, here are my “Penguins” which I affectionately call Pingu – I picked that up from the Antarctic Centre in Christchurch NZ:
Now it is time to visit Dorly Weitzen’s blog and see all her beautiful work.
Just a quick note that if you have “lost your way” through the blog hop you can start again at Hetty’s blog.
Have fun visiting all the blogs and don’t forget to leave comments on all you visit. Thank you for visiting! Enjoy.
