Penguin Doin' The Hula cards

Today I have a few cards to share with you. I was very productive today with my crafting but not so much with housework. Although I did do a load of laundry and vacuumed . . . oh yeah, and I made dinner :) Guess that wasn't too bad.

Anyway . . . I got to play with my JessicaLynnOriginal stamps today. I stamped off a few, but I really wanted to go with the Penguin doin' the Hula stamp. So . . . the first card looked more girly to me, so I added eyelashes to the penguin and softened her colors a bit to a gray instead of black. I then colored the penguins' flowers (or lai) to match my cs. The second card is really doing the hula. I created a tilt card with this one. (I should mention, I originally saw the the tilt card idea on OodabugAlley blog by Ms. Charmaine). There are dimensionals and an aluminum washer behind the little cutie to make him tilt from left to right when you tilt the card.
Stamps: Penguin Doin' the Hula by JessicaLynnOriginal

What a fun way to use the tilt technique! I'll have to search my stamps and see what animals I can have dancing on my cards!
