And here are the deets:
Image: free image from TMITA was colored with prismacolor markers (I know brown penguins only exist in juvenile penguins but the one I colored dark grey just didn't work for me so I used brown instead!), The sky was sponged with Soft Sky (SU!) ink and the "ice" (directly below the image) was created by dragging a Brilliance Platinum dew drop ink pad across the cardstock. Image was cut out with Nesties (see here for a quick toot on how to "cut out of the box" with Nesties to allow part of the image to extend outside the shape) and layered with a scalloped Nestie. Used Liquid Applique on the brim and ball of the hat and Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star pen on the skates.Papers: Bo Bunny "Tis the Season Treasure"; SU! Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, and Whisper White; Best Occasions Metallic Paper Pack (hard to tell in the picture but the bottom of the front is a silver metallic paper that is reflecting the color of the wall in my room and the cardstock it's sitting on...guess I could've taken it so you could see me too or at least my camera!)
Techniques: Scallop of papers was freehanded. The only other "technique" (other than the aforementioned sponging and direct to paper inking) was using Grafix Rub-onz to apply the sentiment (first time I used this product, was pretty easy but probably cost prohibitive to use frequently (about $10 for 4-8.5x11" sheets)).
Layout: Very loosely based on SCS SC17
Embellies/Other: rhinestone snowflakes are from Hero Arts
