Penguin Palace Color Challenge 1

I recently found out that Penguin Palace hosts a monthly challenge, and this month it's a color challenge. I won a gift certificate there last week for commenting on their new release blog posts, and along with purchasing the stencils from their summer release, I also purchased this darling "Adventure in Australia" digital stamp set. It was perfect for making a few last-minute cards to join in the challenge with!

I started by sizing up the digital stamp and doing a print and cut of it with my Silhouette Cameo 4. Then I colored the digi with the light brown, gray, and different shades of blue in the challenge. To created the bottom of the card, I used the "Waterspout" stencil from PP's Stencil 360 collection, and I inked it in the various shades for the color challenge and moved it around to fill in different areas.
