Addicted to CAD #104 Pets

Today I have the honor to join the team at Addicted to CAS as their guest designer. Thank you so much for the invitation! The theme for #104 challenge is "Pets".


Below is the card I created for this challenge. This time I used the green colors that I don't normally use from distress inks - evergreen bough, cracked pistachio, peacock feather, broken china, and tumbled glass. After I ink blended the background, I used my watercolor brush to move the ink around, just to create some watercolor effects. Then I heat embossed the snowflakes.

Dialogs with my husband when I showed him the card.

Me: So what do you think?
Husband: What exactly is this penguin doing?
Me: err... surfing?
Husband: Oh, the background is water? Why are there snowflakes in the water?
Me: err... because it's winter?
Husband: Anyway, why does penguin surf in the winter?
Me: ... (it's called art... $*&%)
