I declare this...

Sweet Escape Tuesday! And it shall remain that, for the next five weeks! Great pleasure to be working as Guest DT at Sweet Escape Digis and I have some awesome images to share with you.

The first image is the penguin from the Kawaii Christmas Friends Pack. He is totes adorbs!

As normal, you won't be shocked, I went for my polychromo's on kraft card for him. Used the normal fur technique but with much shorter, sharper strokes and less swishing about around the edges. They are the technical terms lol. I also used a white posca pen for extra highlights on the black part of his feathers/fur.

As you have probably spotted the knitting obsession struck again, and he had to have a knitted hat and scarf to keep him warm whilst doing a spot of fishing. I added him in a fishing rod, basket and fish, just to upgrade the context and not just sit him on snow like I normally do!

Finally I added some glossy accents (They haven't quite dried in this pic, I've just spotted!) and some stickles. The font I have used is called October Twilight and I added on to it with some white posca pen. The background paper is from The Works and my friend Helen kindly purchased it for me recently. (I am oddly short of Xmas backing paper, I think I have been telling myself to stop buying more of it for years, and now I have none! :))

Here he is in the shop, with his kawaii colleagues in case you fancy treating yourself?

I'll be back next Tuesday with another Sweet Escape Digi, they are proving fabulous to colour, really excited to get cracking with the next one! Stay tuned! :)
