Critter Sketch Challenge #51 - Use a Critter

I had so much fun with this challenge for Critter Sketch Challenge Blog!  The challenge this week is to make a card and use a critter!  Most of my cards have people but very rarely critters so this was fun.  To make it even better our DT is lucky enough to be using cute digi images from our sponsor this month:


I used this cool image:  Paul Penguin Sleighing:

All paper used was from Cloud 9 Design and the snowflakes were punched using a Martha Stewart snowflake punch.  I spritzed them with pearl glimmer mist for some shimmer.  The image was coloured using my prismacolour pencils and blended using odorless mineral spirits.  I'm still learning how to do this so if anyone has some great tutorials or links on colouring with this method I would love to learn more so please leave me a comment and let me know.  The sentiment is from a Kraftin Kimmies set and thought it was perfect....it looks like he is just sitting there waiting for some snow :)

I hope you'll play along with us at in the Critter Sketch Challenge this week as we would love to see your Critter Cards.  Don't forget to check out Robyn's Fetish new store for more amazing digi images!
