I recently purchased Winter Penguin and thought he'd look fabulous skating along an icy winter scene!
To create my card I swiped distress inks in Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, and Seedless Preserves across a piece of white cardstock. Then I swiped Black Soot distress ink around the colors and carefully swiped the edge of the pad between and over the colors to create a northern lights effect. I let it dry completely and then I covered the cardstock with versamark and poured holographic embossing glitter over the panel. I tapped off the excess and heat embossed it to create that super glittery background!
Next I stamped my penguin in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with copics and fussy cut him! I cut the snowy hill with white cardstock and heat-embossed the sentiment from Scripty Sayings with silver embossing powder. I popped up my penguin with foam tape and adhered the hill to my glittery background. I wanted it to look like my penguin had scraped the sentiment into the ice with his little skates! :)
I encourage you to play along with a card using hope, love, encouragement, or thinking of you as your theme! For more inspiration check out the current entries in the challenge...there are some fabulous cards there!
