Challenge #89 - Food

Hello, Kerys here from Scrappinnhappy. I'm hosting the first challenge for the month of October and it is:

#89 - Food!

Our Guest Designer for the month of October is........

Hi, I’m Gaylynn and this is my first time being a Guest Designer for the Paper Girls Challenge Blog.  I enjoy making handmade cards, decorations and party related items.  Mixed media art is another interest of mine.  Making time to document my kids (now adults) and family life are things I want to catch up on.  I have a creative blog called Neat Nook Creations, where I post projects that I make along the way.

Being a Florida girl and loving the tropical life is my inspiration for my project. This penguin card incorporates a few techniques.  The inside panel background was blended using Ranger distress ink pads and sponges.  The waves were made with a white Sharpie marker.  If you distress over the marker, it looks whiter.  I paper pieced the penguin and colored the rest with Copics. Then I trimmed and placed all three images on the background.  For a frame accent, I stamped and placed a diagonal panel.  Supplies include My Favorite Things stamps and dies from Blueprints 15, Penguins in Paradise and Diagonal background.

And now from the Paper Girls:
