How fun and cute are these guys?!!  I’m using the Penguin Snow Fun image for my card today!  Now you already know how I love these penguins, but how cute are they especially that one in the middle with the mouth open! LOL!

For my card I started with a watercolor panel and then white heat embossed the snowflakes over it from the Whimsy Stamps Snow Flurry stamp set.  I then went over this panel with water and added some colors over it with Distress Oxide ink pads smooshed down on my glass mat and picked up with a brush and water.  I’ve used Peacock Feathers, Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean for the colors.  I tilted my panel to get the water to run down a bit and heat set it.

I cut a piece of glitter cardstock with the Kinetic Curved Hills die set as well as some snowflakes from the No-See All Seasons Tree die set.  I placed the hill at the bottom of the watercolor panel and randomly attached the snowflakes to the background.

For the sentiment banner, I white heat embossed it from the same WS Snow Flurry stamp set and added a snowflake in the center of the ‘O’.  I trimmed it into a banner with my scissors and added to the card.

I then took some foam tape and popped up the image over the hill and then added some gems to the center of each die cut snowflake.

Here’s a closer look at this adorable image that I’ve got all colored up with Copic markers.  For the bear and everyone’s cheeks, I’ve used a white gel pen and for the band on the penguin’s ear muffs, I used a clear glitter gel pen.

For the penguin’s red hat trimmings, I used a glue pen and some loose clear glitter over top.  I fussy cut out the image and popped it over top of the glittery snow hill.

OOPS…a bit of the snowflake staging clinged to the glittery snow hill a bit! LOL!
