I Don't Like Mornings

Good morning and happy Tuesday. Hopefully it's now time for the May flowers. Of course a new month means a new challenge at Country View Crafts, and my friend Monika has picked a really fun one - she wants to see some humour in our projects. Here's what I've made.

 I started by brayering a background with PaperArtsy Fresco paints, then used Tim Holtz new Organic stencil and Distress Ink in Salty Ocean

 Then I added some stamping from the Rubber Dance Playful Penguins and Whale Wishes plates. There's a selection of Rubber Dance stamps here.

 Don't you just love these Grumpy Penguins - penguins aren't just for Christmas you know! The quote is from a Dylusions set, but I bet you knew that lol. There's a range of Dyan's stamps here
I hope you like it, and that you join in with our challenge, just show us your funny bones! Have a very happy month, and thanks very much for looking x

  6. Hi Sue!
    I don't receive anymore any notification from blogspot (really don't know why, if you have any idea please tell me!), so it's less easy to follow my friends' blogs. :(
    Anyway no worries, I will continue to come and visit some of them, among them yours :-)
    I love the fun scene here, and these grumpy penguins (they are the same than the ones released by Katzelkraft some time ago... so I guess they were free images, cool!)
