Penguins in Paradise Shaker

Hey lovelies, I hope you all had a nice weekend with plenty of crafting. 
I got a few crafting projects done and also some family time, so all in all it was a good weekend. 
I have a fun card to share today, I have also created a video tutorial for this card over on the Spectrum Noir Blog it shows a simple way to colour black and white objects using your Ice Grey Spectrum Noir Markers, so head on over to the blog to check that out if you get chance. 
I honestly cannot help smiling whenever I see this little dude and although the set comes with lots of sentiments I thought this one best suit this cool penguin…lets be honest he is pretty dam cool…that face !!
I wasn’t going to make a shaker card, but you guys all know me and sequins by now I just have to try and add them somewhere so a shaker seemed perfect for that. 
The sequins were in the Simon Says Stamp May card kit along with the paper & card used, but I also added some extra sequins I had from Pretty Pink Posh and some really old ones in my stash. 
I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle to his rubber ring and then added some glossy accents on top, as well as his beak and feet just to finish him off.
I do have the matching die set, but decided to fussy cut him as I didn’t want the white around the edge.
When I do another card with this guy I might do some paper piecing on his rubber ring, or maybe add some stripes. I also want to do another shaker with one of the other penguins in this set but with one of the Pretty Pink Posh Storybook dies…if you haven’t checked them out then do, although be warned you will probably be like me and want them all !!!
Thing I love most about this card was other than the the colouring nothing else was really planned and I honestly had SO much fun creating it. 
I do hope it makes you smile as much as it had me. 
I hope you all have a great day, thank you for stopping by. 
Happy Crafting
