Snow Penguins for New Year's Eve

by Julie Warner - The Write Stuff

It's New Year's Eve!
And these penguins look pretty happy about it. Can you believe we had a white Christmas here in the deep south? It was awesome! So I thought a little snow for New Year's might be fun, too.

The Let it Snow Penguins are part of our January new images and will be released tomorrow! I started with a piece of white that I brayered with a rainbow pad and only used the purple, blue and a touch of the green parts of the ink pad. After it was done, I took a water brush and smooshed the colors around to soften them a bit. The white layer was embossed with an embossing folder and I cut the inside out to make it into a frame which I attached on top of the brayered background. The images were stamped on a separate piece, colored with markers and cut out. The sledding penguins were attached directly to the background.
On a piece of acetate, I stamped the snowflakes with white Stazon then attached it to the frame with brads. The cut out sentiment was attached on top of the acetate and the finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a safe and very Happy New Year!
