Penguin Dads

Since the male penguin holds the egg on his feet and protects it until hatched, it is very appropriate to have penguins on Father's Day cards.
This one is the fun loving droopy shorts dad. The penguin and sentiment are from My Favorite Things. I paper pieced the shorts with a scrap and then used the left over piece, punched out cheverons and used them as an inside accent.  The stencil, also MFT is done with SU Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, and a dab of Color Box Royal Blue. Dad is from SU. I don't usually use gems on masculine cards but these aqua gems remind me of water drops.I added Glossy accents to make the penquins shiny.
The design is a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

The stenciling for CASology

Using the same sketch, I also did another penguin with stamps from Unity Stamp Company. I used paper from a 6x6 stack of animal themes--don't have the label any longer. This one for the more professorial Dad.
