Grumpy Penguins

 Morning and I have two DT posts today the 2nd one is for the Christmas/Winter challenge at

 Craft Rocket.I used the fabulous Grumpy Penguins stamp from Katzelkraft,coloured with promarkers and distress ink in the background.

The stamped sentiment and humbug sweet are a set I won from Stamp Addicts -just cut it apart to fit.

The background was made using an unused stamp I found and was going to give away and thought I would just at least stamp it once in black then overstamped in blue and green distress inks-pretty cool I thought.

Wow, you have been soooo busy the past few days and you are totally spoiling me, more penguins (you have a lot of penguin inages, are there any more to look forward to?). These grumpy guys have to be the best.

I should hang into the stamp you used for thd background if I were you, that is a very dramatic background.
