Rainbow Christmas Pencil Penguins..and a huge BLOOP!

Sometimes a video doesn’t want to get made….but then we crafters wrestle it to the ground! And turn it into a CAS card to boot. Like craftymagic, right!?!? Watch the video below or click HEREto see it in HD on YouTube.

Pencil colors: 995, 132, 992, 1027, 916, 921, 913, 109, 926, 937, 1079, 1102.

How’s about that Stitched Hillside Border die bailing me out!?!? Thank you Lawn Fawn for always having something to help!

That colored pencil tip – just to reiterate – I did this one over and over so many times. Not for bloops, but the footage just kept doing weird stuff. I nearly quit and moved on, figuring these penguins didn’t want to be on YouTube! But – I kept the pencils in order like this, so I could real quickly grab everything in rotation to do both layers of pencil quickly. If you have a lot to color, it’s a good idea to do the coloring with some kind of ordering so you can jam through the work quickly!

And those adhesives – the wider 3M one is under the full panel, and the thinner Xtreme tabs are under the snow. Which helps add dimension without adding so much it costs extra postage! Note that the 3M tape now comes in a 3/4″ roll – wider than previous, which is no longer available. It’s a little pricier, but the GOOD NEWS: theres 2 extra feet of tape, and it’s wide enough to cut it down the middle to get double the use out of it.
