P is for Penguin

To round off the year we have the last letter in The Craft Barn dictionary challenge...P. In my house it just had to be penguin. I discovered a stamp set I must have bought years ago and never used. Think I might use it for next year's Christmas cards!

The background is white gesso, Inktense ink and white acrylic paint with touches of black paint pen. I used Distress Ink through stencils and some stamping for the border.

And here it is...the final letter...

It's been great fun to join in with the dictionary challenge this year. I've enjoyed looking at how everyone has interpreted the letters and a BIG thank you to everyone who has visited this blog and left such lovely comments. Looking forward to the New Year and a new challenge. xxx

Materials used:
Inktense blocks
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint: snowflake
Archival Ink: jet black
Joanna Sheen: Jayne Netley Mayhew penguins
Kaisercraft: edges
Distress Ink: faded jeans
PaperArtsy stencil: PS031
