Penguin Warm Wishes

DRS Designs is getting ready for another release of some great winter stamps. They will be available for purchase Nov. 19th. One of the stamps included is the adorable Penguin Snowball Blast (966K) that you can see on today's card.

I started by coloring the entire image with Copic Markers. I even outlined each of the ice blocks with C1, a light gray marker, but I didn't like the look. Plus, it just looked like it needed something. Once I added Stickles to it, this image really came to life! The glistening snow was just what it needed!

After matting the colored image, I stamped the 4 in 1 Snowflakes (096D) repeatedly to create my own designer paper to add behind the image. I stamped a piece of white card stock with Warm Wishes in dark blue ink in the lower right corner and then used a snowflake embossing folder to add texture to it. Then I adhered the matted image on an angle as shown and added some blue brads to help pick out the blue in the image. Finally, the card front was adhered on to an A2 size cardstock base. I really liked the final look to this card. I'm sure it will help beat the Winter Blues when the time comes and brighten up anyone's day! Hope you like it!
