A Penguin I like…what’s the world coming to???

Ha-ha!  If you know me, you know I’m a die hard Washington Capitals fan (Let’s Go Caps!!!) and for that reason a lot of penguins are not any friends of mine.  This little guy though, he gets a pass he’s an old DOTS stamp called Peter Penguin.

So he’s card number 3 for the Christmas Cards All Year Round October challenge.  This little guy is made with Halloweens most popular color, black. The flash on the camera (and er..my coloring skills lol) do not really show that he is indeed a black penguin.  I’ve got A LOT of work to do on getting black to look black without using black.  Anyone have any tips for me??? For him I tried to create 'black' using Copic C3, C5 and C7. I also Googled to see what color penguins beaks are cause everyone always makes them orange lol, turnes out they are black or brown.
I’ve got a super busy weekend ahead so I might not get back to the challenge until next week.  You probably need a break anyway I mean gracious when was the last time I made 3 post in less than 2 days lol!
Till next time!
