3rd Day of 12 Days of Christmas with Smeared and Smudged

Edit: Blogger was auto'd but didn't :(

Hi folks, yep, already day 3. Today I have combined a project made for another forum as DT member there - Stampin'Dymonz' Scrap Shack.
This weeks fancy card is a Snow Globe Card
I've used one of the new Delicious Doodles images - The Penguin Family.

Bit of a glare - sorry - acetate isn't kind to a flash but I've tried to reduce it a bit. The base was made using a paper from Crafty Chaos Designs.
The image was touched with just a little bit of coloured pencil in yellow. All the rest of the work has been done by Teri. A bit of icicle stickles to highlight the sun hitting the snow. More stickles on the front, rubbed in so that the paper glistened softly. Afew snowflake peeloffs.


I stamped and heat embossed a little rhyme about penguins. I mixed silver and blue embossing powders with a little bit of silver glitter to give a slightly distressed look and sparkle all in one.
That's about it for me. There're loads of awesome creations being made and posted by my fellow artists. Please go look. The list is over on my side bar.
The next day is wednesday ... hope to see you here
