Penguin On Ice

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
Come join our monthly challenge...and you could be the next winner of two High Hopes Stamps of your choice.  The details for the November Challenge can be found here.  The challenge runs through November 30th.

With Christmas less than 6 weeks away, it's time to get those cards done!!! I hope this card may inspire you...
This is Penguin On Ice (TT010)....what a super cute image!!!  The possibilities using this image are endless.

I started by colouring the image with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I added some Glossy Accents to the Penguin's beak and feet.  Diamond Stickles were applied to the pompom and the fur on the hat.  Xmas Red Stickles was used for the holly berries.  

The image was die cut using a Stitched Square die.  The same die was used for offsetting the red layer behind the image.  The pattern paper is from Doodlebug-Sugarplums 6x6 Paper Pad, along with some SU Green, Red, and White cardstock.  For the holly embellishment in the top left corn of the main image, I used a Creative Expressions die called Festive Collection.  These holly dies are just gorgeous, with a very detailed look to them.  Some Zig-Wink of Stella Glitter Green pen was applied over the green cardstock that was used to die cut the holly leaves.  Foam tape was used under the main image to add some dimension.  To complete this card, a few YNS Glitter Sparkle Gumdrops were added below the ribbon sentiment.

Ink - Tombow Markers - N15, N35, N75, 491, N60, 985, 025, 055, 969, 977, 847, 856, 126, and 245.  Versamark Ink Pad and Black Embossing Powder.
