Penguins Is Practically Chickens

I got to help choose this design for the 2 Cute Ink contest I won. I asked for an animal other than an owl reading because c'mon...animals reading? How cute is that? Well, it's pretty darn cute if you're Heidi and you draw a penguin in glasses. I wonder what he's reading.

I colored this guy up and fussy cut him and put him on a Dylusions spray background I made. I spent an afternoon with a pizza box to catch the sprays, a million sheets of different types of paper and about 3 spray colors. After the papers dried, I cut them out and ran them through the Big Shot with this 3-D embossing folder by We R Memory Keepers. My favorite papers were the slightly glossy kind you shouldn't send through an inkjet printer because they'll smear. The spray droplets are more pronounced and don't bleed into the paper as can see that in the close-up.

You might recognize my post title from this classic Bugs Bunny cartoon. One of my favorite cute penguins is little guy, especially when he cries ice cubes. Love!

Happy Monday!


  1. Oh is he ever cute!! He looks like he's looking up to tell you about what he just read! Those backgrounds are amazing, Char!!

    1. thanks, Kara Lynne, they were fun to make too!

  2. I love animals reading! It's nice to see other animals getting into the act besides owls... 😊 The background lets the penguin really stand out.


I love hearing from my crafty friends!
