it's Wednesday and you know what that means,
a new challenge for you over at
We have a fabulous sketch by Nat
for you to create with, it's a good'un too!!!
Here's my take on it!!
As some of you know, I have been on a quest for a penguin image and these little penguins from Whipper Snapper Designs are just what the doctor ordered!! Here we have "A Hug for Ike," Ike the penguin is getting a bear hug from the superbly adorable Mike!! Love these, I am totally pleased with my WSD purchase, as always, and even though it's a little late in the season, I think you'll be seeing more from Ike and Mike very, very soon!!
DP is K & Company, cardstock is Bazzill, the image is coloured in distress inks and layered, popped up with foam dots, background distressed in faded jeans, snowflakes have been stamped onto the back panel with Brilliance Moonlight white ink, Star Dust stickles has been added here and there, and the punched snowflakes are courtesy of a Martha Stewart punch, they've been glimmer misted in pearl and stabbed with these fabulous curdoroy brads from the dear Princess Bling Kristy, thanks snookums!! The snow is Martha Stewart coarse glitter and the sentiment is a stamp from Recollections, I cut and shaped a white peice of Neenah into a banner shape, distressed it in Old Paper, stamped the sentiment on it in Faded Jeans and slapped on some Stickles, the idea was to make it look snow-kissed, not sure I pulled it off, but a grand idea nevertheless!! More sewing, lots of distressing with scissors, scrummy lace from my stash, and there you have it!!
Seems sort of plain after my last couple of cards, but I wanted to show off the image work and the yummy paper and distressing, not to mention, my rapidly-improving sewing skills, lol!!
I have, of course, fit this into several other challenges:
A spoon full of sugar wants to see lots of layering, oh yesssss, I can do that!
Colour Create is hosting a kraft, white and blue + texture challenge,
Double Dutch wants to see our frozen, frosty creations,
PaperPlay Challenge is hosting a Furry Friends challenge,
Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential is suggesting we let our snowflakes go wild!!!
And of course, our sketch from Creative Inspirations
I hope you all will have a chance to play along with us this week, we have a yummy prize up for grabs and beautiful inspiration from the DT!!
