To a Cool Friend

Hi there,

we are starting a new Christmas Challenge over on the Happy Little Stampers Blog and this time the optional twist is "Stencil":

  • stamp both sides of the penguin from the Art Impressions Snowman and Penguin Set with Memento (Tuxedo Black)
  • color the images with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils and Zest-it
  • add white Liquid Applique to the rim and the pompon of the hat
  • cut out a stitched panel from watercolor paper and cut one of the My Favorite Things Stitched Peek-a-Boo Windows into that panel, a white cardbase and another panel cut from patterned paper from the BoBunny Altitude 6x6 paper pad
  • apply some Distress Oxide Ink (Broken China) through the Memory Box Tiny Snowflake stencil and mist the watercolor panel with Pearlized Water
  • stamp some more snowflakes from the Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together set with Distress Oxide Ink (Broken China) to the outside and inside of the card
  • stamp the two parts of the sentiment from the same stamp set with that same ink to the outside and inside as well
  • for more interest heat-emboss some of the snowflakes inside the card with WOW! Silver Pearl embossing powder

I can't wait to see your creations in the gallery.
