Making Lines - Celebrating with Cheers

Going back to coloring today and one more card for the MFT Summer School with Lesson #4 and also joining over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge with"Anything Goes" and for the 30 day color challenge Kathy's is hosting over at The Daily Marker .
Here is my card:
To create the lines on this card, I first stamped it down using Versamark ink along with the stamp set: Patterned Triangles and embossed in white. Next, I grabbed my watercolors and used the triangles as lines to add color to them to defines more. For the panel, I used blueprints 13 to get the stitched outline and popped it up using craft foam.

Next, colored in the penguin and and added a small stitched circle behind him. White embossed the sentiment onto black cardstock. Used foam mount under the sentiment and under the penguin. As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge site, please do so to see more inspiration and plus join in on the last sketch.
