Look at today's cutie!!! Isn't this penguin just the sweetest?!! This adorable image is called "Skating Along" from High Hopes Stamps! The expression on his face just makes me giggle! That's how I skate too all graceful (lol).... except because I'm not looking down, I'd trip and fall flat out LOL!
To start I stamped the background High Hopes image called "Winter Wonderland Background" with embossing ink and added white embossing powder. Then I used my heat gun to melt the embossing powder. I stamped the background a second time on some masking paper and cut out the trees so I could lay it over the embossed image. This way the trees would be "protected" while I coloured the sky. Using Distress Oxide Ink in Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Broken China I created my sky and added ink to the snow. Next I used some Lucky Clover Distress Ink and my water brush to colour in the trees. I coloured the "Skating Along" image with my Copics and hand fussy cut it out. I added the image to the background with some foam tape for added dimension. Of course this background and image had to have some sparkle, so I used my Clear Glitter Wink of Stella pen and added it to the snow and the ice the penguin is skating on. A few enamel dots, ribbon and bow finish it all off!
I also used the High Hopes sentiment called "Sleetin' & Freezin'" and popped it up with foam tape as well.
