Feeling Punchy?

Good morning!  We have an interesting challenge for you this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches...not only do we have a sketch, but it is our judged challenge as well...our twist is to create a punch art animal.  They don't call this a challenge for nothing!

Since I really had no idea how to make a punch art animal, I used Pinterest as a resource and found a cute penguin to try on My Stampin' Blog.  I made the penguin per the detailed instructions, but I had to add a bit of glitter to make it my own.  (I do LOVE glitter!)  I think he turned out kind of cute and I did have fun making him...even though it took all morning!  LOL  So here is my penguin combined with this week's sketch....


Paper: SU! Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Black, My Mind's Eye "Winter Wonderland" 6x6 Pad
Ink: SU! Bashful Blue, Pacific Point, and Pumpkin Pie, Color Box Frost White
Embellies: Barbara Trobley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Spare Parts Brad, Black Mesh Ribbon (my stash)
Extras: SU! Punches: Two Step Owl, Extra Large Oval, Large Oval, and Word Window, Spellbinder's Snowflake Dies, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will head on over to the TMS blog to check out what the rest of the DT have created with their punches.  Why not dig out your punches and play along?

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers: More Than 1 Punch or Die
Make It Monday: Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!
