Is that a Penguin in your Window?

Hello, my fellow stampers!  I've made a picture for the current challenge on the Rubber Dance blog, where the theme is to make something inspired by a movie. Can you guess which this is?

'Mr. Popper's Penguins' is an American comedy from 2011, with Jim Carrey, Carla Guino, and Angela Lansbury, among others. The film was loosely based on a children's book of the same name, first published in 1938. 

Mr. Popper is a real estate entrepreneur in New York who inherits six penguins from his father. As Mr. Popper transforms his luxurious apartment into a penguin friendly winter wonderland, his professional life starts to unravel..
This family friendly comedy is kind of cute and I adore Angela Lansbury! Even if her role was not a big one, it's a vital one for the plot and she's there - on and off.
I've used a free photo from Wikipedia Commons for my backdrop - one can see the Empire State building from Mr. Popper's apartment. My "window" is a mini printer tray from Tando Creative, which I painted white. The snow on the window frames are mini art stones and glitter glue. It's really blingy in real life, like a thousand dimonds on glittery snow, but this was impossible to caputure on camera - so I edited my photo by adding some bling reflections in Photoshop.

I stamped the Playful Penguins from Rubber Dance on watercolour paper, coloured them in with Zig markers, cut them out and glued them to the window. And that's it! A quick and easy make, inspired by a cute movie.

There's still time to join our challenge at Rubber Dance - you have until midnight CET on the 30th of November to join (you don't have to use stamps from Rubber Dance).

Thanks for looking!

  1. Very imaginative to use the tray as a window and the penguins looks at home! I can't say I remember that film but now I'm intrigued...


I guess it's not common that people go back to see if they were thanked for their comments, so I will say it now: THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment! ♥
