Sky's the Limit

How cute is Julee's Mojo Monday Challenge!! LOVE this layout, but then again I say that about all of her sketches :) I was trying to figure out what stamp to use that was small enough to fit in my circle when I spotted this adorable Memory Box penguin sitting on my desk. BINGO! Doesn't he make you giggle and scream out, "Tower, this is ghost rider requesting a flyby". Yep, I've watched Top Gun too much! My little Aviator is stamped with Palette Noir. I then colored him in with my Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I added Crystal Effects to the lens to make them look like real glasses. I cut him out using my circle Coluzzle. Then glued him on orange Bazzill and cut that circle out, very carefully, by hand. The entire image is raised with a dimensional. I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White and cut it out with my Word Window punch. I poked some holes along the top of the orange panel with my mat pack and paper piercer. Then drew some faux stitches with my white gel pen. Thanks so much for the wonderful challenge and inspiration Julee!

Oh I love him!! He's on my wishlist, along with all the other Memory Box Penguins.
So tell me, how do you get your circles to look so nice with the coluzzle? I just got my circles and I'm having a heck of a time trimming them nicely. Any tips?
Love the faux stitching!

I feel the need...the need for speed.

That's the only Top Gun quote I know. :-)

You did a great job coloring him, Kim!

What a cutie! I didn't get this penguin, but I may have to hunt him down and add him to my collection. He's so cute! Great card! Love the colors you used!
