Happy Feet....not!

A couple of days ago, I posted a layout of the four seasons with my daughter's wedding photo that said "Every season of the year, you make my heart flutter". The seasons were done with the Spellbinders bird nestability.
Elaine asked how I did the penquins, so I thought I would give you a closer look. It is the tail of the bird that makes the penquin's beak and head. You don't see the diecut bird's real head. The coloring of black and yellow was done with Copic airbrushing, using a mask I hand cut.
I did the words on the computer, playing off the movie, Happy Feet.
Just an example of how you can look at a diecut differently and head in a different direction!

How cute!!! My 13 yr old grandson LOVES penguins... so thanks for the idea!!! Thanks, too, for the laugh - that sentiment describes how my poor feet have felt lately.

Very Clever and I so agree with that sentiment right now. My feet have been hurting a lot the last few days so this gave me quite a chuckle.
