This weeks SplitcoastStampers Inspiration Challenge comes from The Company Store. Their catalog arrived in my mailbox this week, and as I thumbed through I immediately saw inspiration ... specifically, this adorable Holiday Penguin Stocking.
I knew I had some holiday penguin stickers in my stash that needed a home, so I combined them with some papers from my Paper Marbling Marathon with Lauren earlier this year. I started with green & gold marbling on kraft cardstock and added some birch wood wrapping paper (that I made a special trip to Pier One to pick-up this week ... it's fantastic) that reminded me of the background in the picture.
I attached my penguin sticker to a Ranger Craft Tag and stamped my vintage Hero Arts sentiment in Stampin' Up Emerald Envy ink. I tilted it like the stocking in the photograph.
For the second one I started with a piece of red & white marbled cardstock on kraft paper. For this one I skipped the tag and attached my penguin pair directly to the wood wrapping paper.
I used wood mount Hero Arts Winter Wonder for my sentiment with my new Catherine Pooler Designs Rockin' Red Ink (still lovin' that ink). My sentiment is from 2014, so I am also linking up at Retro Rubber which has an Anything Goes Challenge this week.
I hope you join us and find inspiration.
