So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
- Make a project using the "Spotlighting Technique".
- Or Make a project featuring "Penguins".
- Or "Mash it Up" and create a project featuring "Penguins using the Spotlighting Technique".
How fun is this new challenge from Lisa at The Friday Mashup? I think my pregnancy brain lost the spotlighting technique as I traveled from the living room to my stamp room, but I did remember the penguin! My husband and I are big penguin fans, so it made me happy to make this card. A local friend had asked me to make a card for her to give to a friend for their birthday and it just so happened that she wanted a penguin one! Perfect, right? Two birds, one stone thingy. I found this lovely card by one of my favorite stampers, Teneale Williams and used it as my inspiration starting point.
Now while I'm not a fan of pink, I LOVE me some purple. I really love purple paired with green! The pretty paper from the Cheerful Treat hostess pack was just perfect for that combination. I didn't have any penguin stamps that were big enough, but the owl punch and a bit of surgery made a pretty passable penguin I think. A bit of bling, some yummy ribbon, and a button finish it off and add those extra touches that really make a handmade card special.
I hope you'll join us this week at the Mashup with either a lovely penguin card of your own, perhaps a spotlighted card, or if you are an overachiever, a mashed up card featuring both! :) Also be sure to submit your idea for an upcoming Fan Favorite challenge! We'd love to see how you'd mash it up!
