Birthday Penguin

Good morning! Popping by with another birthday card this morning - not quite a "woodland" animal, but still a cute critter, right? This is using a past Stamp of the Week from Unity Stamps.

I did some watercoloring on him, and really love how it came out. I added was trying to add a very soft wash of blue to the background, and hadn't cleaned my brush perfectly, so a bit of yellow came out on the paper as I did it. At first I was frustrated, feeling like I had messed up, but as the colors blended, I found I really liked it! I also thought I had too much water on there, but once it dried, I really loved the super soft edges and background! Colored the balloon, then added just a *touch* of pink to the cheeks and tummy, and finished with a bit of Stickles on the dots of the balloon.

Pattern paper was from my scrap stash, and a couple rounded corners were the final touch! Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
