As I worked through my box of wood-mounted fauna stamps, I found my rarely-used Memory Box penguins. They're so darn cute, but I didn't buy the sentiment that went with them and they just seem a bit hard to use as a result.
My favorite is "my" stamp...the one I recommended they make...the Aviator Penguin. You can find the story on this old post from June 2010.
So here is a series of (mostly) black-and-white penguin cards. They are very basic, very simple, and inspired by several different projects from 1000 Greetings.
You might notice that I created a "ground" for the last two with a pen-drawn line. I'm not sure it's necessary (although I imagine Her Royal Rubberness Julie Ebersole would say it is!). You may feel inspired to give the pen-and-ruler grounding technique a try. It is pretty easy and extremely cool.
